WARNING ⚠️ NEXT IMAGE IS GRAPHIC!!! So recently I’ve been becoming more and more freaked out over falling, I’ve been really trying to overcome the anxiety, but today I jumped down off a climb and jolted my ankle.. I haven’t thought much of it except for the constant tingling sensation like my foot has fallen asleep.
Oh well.. nerve damage doesn’t just disappear.
On a lighter note, I’m very happy how far I have come, I’ve sent my hardest grade to date, I have a trip to Bishop coming up and, despite the high balls, I’m actually really excited! I also wanted to say thank you to everyone for not letting me bitch out. I really appreciate the tough love 😊 I’m very happy, if not terrified, I am pleased. The first video was taken a few days after the fall.
Second photo the surgeon demanded he take because he knew I’d want to see it later 😂, thanks doc!
Third image is after my splint was removed a week later and I was switched to a boot, that I never wore- and now the second video where you see my stubborn ass refusing to use a boot.
AND most importantly, the last two photos. Thanks to @jeremy_finnegan for constantly pushing me to my limits knowing that I’m capable of a lot more than I give myself credit for.
The first one is 5 weeks after dislocating my ankle, we hiked to Emerald Lake and I started a low end project for myself 💖
The next one is from a trip with @mountain_ninja13 where I definitely faced my fear of falling on a taller boulder.
It has been incredible learning my limitations and my strengths and relearning how to climb based on that. Again thanks to everyone for constantly giving me crap for freaking out- it helps, even when I tell you to F off 😊 really thanks!
