I have a torn rotator cuff and soon will be having surgery. But it's the emotional trauma that is killing me. I played/practiced six days a week. I worked hard to get where I am. I won our summer club championship with the rotator tear. Yes, it hurt. But I won.
All my friends are golfers. All our vacations centered around golf. It's about the only thing my husband and I have in common! i feel like my whole life has been yanked out from under me. I feel like I am sliding down into a deep pit of despair.
I don't want to walk on the beach, or go shopping, or go the casino. I want to play golf! Then, I worry, if and when I ever get back onto the course, that I'll never be able to attain the success level I had prior to injury.
I am just a whining crybaby? It's not like I'm starving and homeless in Haiti!
