get ACTIVE, get MOVING, get GOING!
Chronic illness and sensitivity may happen and as healthcare providers, coaches, trainers there is nothing more powerful to an athlete suffering than POSITIVE OPTIMISM!
give your athletes the confidence to move on and get GOING with their lives. Let them figure things out and re-establish their "rhythm."
Well said @mortgage_maker_molly and keep pushing those boundaries. Anyone suffering should read this. Thank you for your courage to share.

●After sustaining a myriad of injuries in my day, many, though well intentioned, Doctors and Physical Therapists told me things like "you can't play basketball anymore" or "you can't lift weights anymore". They told me this not because I can't, but because their experience in working with patients led them to believe that I would not be willing to put in YEARS of everyday work in order to make sure this wasn't the case for me. To these doctors I have one thing to say: Do not put YOUR limitations on me, I will do the work, I DO the work. This yoke weighs 205 #s.● ●Years later I found a coach and Therapists who didn't sugar coat it, who didn't make it easy, but who helped me make it possible. I wish that no eighteen year old would ever again get told "you can never do (this thing you love) again."● ●don't put someone else's limitations onto others based on your experience with lazy people. Remove the words "cant" and "never again" replace those words with "This is going to be a long and frustrating process, but if you're willing to work... you can accomplish whatever you want to."● thank you @shawnjarnold @bootyfarmllc @toptiercolumbiajason @kimbiaphysio and @doctorwijy for believing I still could, and belong me believe that too.
