I started ballet because I was dismayed my body was giving up on youth and undergoing repair. Ballet was a defiance to my disease. I had defects and soft tissue damage that was a ticking countdown to eventual hip replacement. Chronic disease will take away my other hip too. I fight to dance in defiance. I dance on my own, in my dreams, and hope to one day make it a reality. For a permanent reminder against the ticking clock. #humanresiliance #chronicdisease #hipsurgery #performanceart #transhumanism #ghostintheshell #ballet #cyber

I'm not a swimsuit model because I don't fit the "form" prescribed by brands. I choose my own style and the cut, textile and Japanese body-type is the only one I never have problems with. Same goes for leotards. I feel that women have a lot of choice, and we have a lot of variation in body types. Being an athlete, I'm not interested in flaunting curves or any bullshit that comes with "beauty standards". Instead I like to analyze form. I want activewear that promotes form. Form follows function, I don't care about body shape and gimmicky aesthetics. So when I choose to wear whatever I wear, it's because of the edge that it gives me in performance AND style. Style that I am proud of gives me confidence to perform. Brands don't make anything for my body type, so I often cobble together my own way of being.

I'm standing on my surgical leg. That's the one with the hip arthroplasty. Today I was having difficulties with swelling wrapped around the joint. It affected my turn out and antagonized any abduction and pliés greatly. •
On days like this my mobility becomes fatigued, and my deep tendons antagonize my control with spongeyness and loss of strength. Every now and again my tendons wrapping closely to the mechanical joint get irritated against it's non anatomical rims and composite surfaces and swell up. Compounding the jamming sensation that I try to avoid and work-around.

The real issue is the long term, chronic injury my deep tendons are suffering as they slide over these bionic surfaces, without the lubricating bursar sacs that once used to assist them. Their reaction is to lay down connective tissue as an inflammatory response that "glues" the braid of muscles surrounding the joint and restricts my mobility. I have to regularly "clean" my mechanical joint from this goo, in order to restore my flexibility and free my tendons to work individually rather than trapped together and restricting my movement.

Who would have thought that having #hipreplacement would be an ongoing restoration of function when you chose to maintain your vocabulary of motion as a ballerina ? Without this regular treatment to disrupt the constant lay-down of inflammatory response "glue" my functional range of motion will eventually shrink down as the deep muscles callous against the inorganic components, and lose their suppleness.

I am now more responsible to maintain my body after total hip replacement than even when I was fighting the disease that took my hip away.

So I went and tried stretching my overarch yesterday while balancing in cambré and my nerve must have got crushed between metatarsal 1&2 dammit. It's being electric shocks today and I had to wear cushion slippers to prevent my metatarsals drifting together and irritating the nerve. Warning: don't go forcing your overarch excessively! Nerve irritation is the worst. It will settle down but I'm not pushing it. Hence I ended up in the pool today. Not going to risk doing jumps or anything impactful until this little irritation goes away.

The only person holding yourself back is you. Well maybe in this case at least I wasn't kicking him in the balls to leap into the rainbow. I love all the pretty things @acrojames is teaching me.
