I'm just pissed that with every injury ive ever had, I was too scared to break myself so I stopped lifting altogether or stopped with the affected area, eg no squats for 6 months. This was the first time I tried to train around my injury and work at rehabbing it and I ended up making it worse. One of these days I'll figure it out.
I guess the good thing is that ive been successfully taking 2 steps forward for every step back, so I'm ahead in the long term... It just pisses me off when I think about all the wasted time and where I could be. Not that I dwell on that at all; I'm happy to have made the progress ive made. I'm just a late bloomer
