Was there some disconnect between you as an athlete who knew how to achieve a goal and what you as a patient were able to do PT after your injury?

Yes, yes. Because I wanted it now. Like I honestly, when, my mom was telling me what happened to me (about my accident and injuries) on the ambulance ride to Spaulding, she was like you’re going to have to learn how to walk again, you’re going to have to learn how to do this. I’m like (thinking in my head) well what does she know? I accomplished so much already in athletics that I don’t need that.

You are thinking Walk? I can hit a curve ball?

I can. I got that, I got this, you know? But then I got it, oh I do have (problems). They were trying to take their time and I was like no, I want to get out of here. I don’t want to spend my whole summer in rehab. So I’d try to push myself as hard as I could, but a lot of times it’d be like, you got to watch it.
