There are some things that happen in your life that you aren’t ready for. Teenagers believe that they are invincible. When some find out that they really aren’t, it can affect their life. I use to think I was invincible. Sure, getting scrapes and bruises was no big deal to me, but I was not ready for what was going to happen. Growing up, I played softball, basketball, volleyball, and track competitively. I was addicted to sports. They were my life all year round and I was ecstatic to play all of my sports for my high school.With the rest of the basketball girls from the surrounding area, I began summer basketball camp. There was a basketball tournament where we played 4 games in one day. During the game an opponent stole the ball, so I chased her down the court. Once I reached her under their basket, I tripped over her foot, fell, and heard something snap. I was absolutely freaking out. The referees ran down to me. All I could say was “Something popped! Something popped!” I couldn’t bend my leg at the knee, it was scary. I was brought to the main lobby to walk it off. I couldn’t bend my leg for two weeks.Once I could bend my knee again, I started playing sports again. I took a break from basketball, but I kept up with softball and volleyball. My knee didn’t feel quite the same, but I thought that would pass. During my volleyball camp at Olivet Nazarene University, I was jumping up to block and when I landed my knee buckled and I knocked over my friend Christie. I could not believe this happened again! After I couldn’t get up, once again, the coach insisted that I go and see Ozzy, the trainer. He checked out my knee and thought I had torn my meniscus(the cartilage in the knee joint) and possibly had a small tear in my MCL(the inside tendon of the knee). He insisted that I go to O.A.K. Orthopedics (a health care office that includes 8 orthopedic surgeons) to see Dr. Ellis.I wasn’t afraid to go see the Doctor, because I thought I knew what was wrong. I was told it would only take up to four weeks to heal. Dr. Ellis told me the same thing that Ozzy did, but I got an x-ray first, just to make sure there were no fractures or broken bones.
