In the Blink of an Eye
One moment I was confident, doing things that come naturally and enjoying myself. The next moment I had torn the anterior cruciate ligament, and meniscus in my left knee. The psychological injury hurt as did the awful physical damage to my knee. In that blink of an eye my plans changed. Like the other 95,000 Americans who suffer this injury each year, I will heal. Interestingly, women are more prone to ACL damage than men. It is not clear why. The rehabilitation takes months - sometimes close to a year. I promise not to bore you with details.
