So last week I just tore my ACL, and tomorrow am going to find out if I need surgery or not. This is my 3rd season ending injury in the last 4 Years and I just don’t know what to do anymore. Skiing is the most important thing in my life but it seems like whenever I start to progress I just get set back to where I was when I was 15. I want nothing more than to be as good a skier as I can be but I’m starting to have difficulty pushing myself to be better without just hurting myself again. For reference I’m 18 years old, I stretch often and take care of my body, and I wouldn’t consider myself to be a reckless skier by any means.
Right now I just can’t take my mind off skiing and all I want to do right now is plan/save up for next season.
Why does this keep happening and has anyone been through something similar? If so, how’d you get through it?
