So much gratitude and respect for my physiotherapist and trainer, Dr. David Lee. I met him one year ago after a bad injury and surgery. He helped me walk/function/dance again.
I'll never forget his words to me when I hobbled into our first PT session: "this is going to really suck, but you'll get stronger." I foolishly thought "how hard can it be?" Boy was I in for a surprise. He didn't just fix my foot, but rebuilt my body from head to toe, improving every way I moved while demanding the highest physical performance each time. Some days I didn't think I would make it out alive (the man uses a 🔪to break up scar tissue). He pushed me through agony and inspired me to come back stronger and more determined than ever. We laughed through the moments he tortured me, which were often. He went on to help the other athletes in our family, inspiring us to push beyond measure and NEVER stop.
You can form quite a bond with someone through extreme challenges and growth, and Dr. Lee is someone I'll always appreciate and never forget. So sad he is moving, but excited for his next chapter in life! 💙 (thanks to friend @pageotey for the introduction!)
