Dreams and nightmares

174 days since injury
112 days since surgery

It’s now 4 months since the operation and I have been walking for over 10 weeks.

The progress is increasing rapidly and I barely notice anything different in my knee now. I achieved full knee range over a month ago and since then I haven’t looked back.

Yet my dreams are starting to trouble me.

In the first month or two after the diagnosis, I woke up and for a few seconds everything was normal… until I remembered about the injury.

A flood of emotion came every morning, and it felt like finding out the bad news each time.

That faded away as I picked up my mental state, but in these recent weeks, I have been dreaming of playing football. I thought a lot about giving up this sport I love so much, and deep down I know it’s the right thing to do.

I have more to write on these tough decisions but, for now, I am trying to figure out what these dreams mean.
