hey whats up fellas. as some of you may know i am firefighter in the civilian world as well in the military reserve. well we are getting ready for a big inspection in May so we are playing war games from thursday to monday. well as a firefighter, not only do we wear our regular chemical gear but we have to wear our firefighter gear on top of it. yeah talk about a lot of shit lol
well today during an evaluated drill, i ended up hurting myself. didnt want to go to the ER but supervisor advised me to go just so we can document it in case of any future problems. well what do you know, i have a knee sprain. the only did x-rays but told me to go see a specialist since the pain is not really in the knee but on the back side of my knee. here are two pics so you know what i am wearing and for good humor.
ouch - dang man sorry to hear! Hopefully you recover quick! Knee issues are never fun - had a couple issues and while military healthcare is sufficient, keep your eye on it. I still hurt every day because I let a corpsman tell me what was best. Your in good hands either way - just wish ya the best!
Oscar if that were me I'd be on permanent disability!! Your young enough that this will be just a blip on the screen! BUT - do everything the doc says and don't push for an early return or you'll be WITH me in the old folks home instead of VISITING me!!
