So I used to skate all the time, but I finally had to stop because I kept hurting myself. I recently picked my board up again just to cut down on my commute time to school in the morning (saves me 10 min. on a 20 min. walk)
Yesterday I was cruising down the side walk on the way to the grocery store when I hit a crack and completely ate shit. Didn't think anything of it at first, got up, dusted my self off, muttered obscenities at the crack in the side walk, and finished my grocery shopping and rode home with about 40 lbs. of groceries in each hand. When I got home I noticed I was losing some range of motion in my left elbow (can't extend it all the way, can't touch my shoulder). So I R.I.C.E.'d it the rest of the night and when I woke up this morning it hurt like a bitch and is all misshaped.
I know I know; cool story hansel.
So, here's my question, What the fuck did I do to my arm? I'm going to the doc. this afternoon to find out for sure, but does anyone have a clue?
P.S. This took a really long time to type, and I'm never skating again.
hope you didnt break your growth plate on yer elbow. i chipped mine two years ago and it sucked. if i just knocked my elbow on anything it would swell up to the size of a grapefruit on my elbow. this was for about 6 months. really blowed
My hobbies include "all kinds of ill shit."
its prolly a bruised bone. same shit happened to me yesterday. i was manualling across this manual pad and at the end i put my wheel down and caugth the coping and fucked up my elbow and hip. my hip hurts like hell
momentum sesh 2 is gonna be sick, pm me if your goin.
when life gives you lemons, paint that shit gold-atmosphere
honey's wanna chat, but all we wanna know is where the party at - biggie smalls
Fuuck man that sucks, I wish you the best in a quick recovery!
And the sign said long-haired freaky people need not apply,
So I tucked my hair up under my hat
And I went in to ask him why,
He said, "You look like a fine upstandin' young lad.
I think you'll do",
So I took off my hat and said, "Imagine that,
huh , me workin' for you."
I got a board just for getting places. it's an old slalom board that I had with longboard trucks and some old 75mm wheels that I had lying around. Put something like that together and you'll roll over full on curbs.
