I'm going to be sidelined and on crutches a couple of month due a sporting injury that required surgery. It's a bummer and I was really depressed for about three days because I won't be able to do the things I love and excelled at. But you know something? It's not as bad as suffering from DP since you know that you're getting better and look forward to the recovery process. People are constantly telling me that they're amazed at my positive attitude and lack of "woe is me" attitide, since physical activity has defined my life somewhat. Little do they know that once you've gone through DP hell you emerge so much stronger. Although it sucks so bad, DP does develop a sense of grit and mental endurance.
