I am recovering from a dislocated shoulder and rotator cuff tear that happened when I crashed in February. It is not the first time I have hurt my self. Relatively modest damage in the past, including fractured tibia/fibula in Tuckerman Ravine week after 13th birthday, strained medial meniscus when got taken out by another skier three years ago at Jay Peak, low back strain when got caught up in a lift chair and thrown into lift shack after yanked over trip bar, etc. But this latest injury has been the most difficult to recover from, though I did it on my own without surgery. While I am raring to go for the best season ever, I must admit that this injury has prompted me to contemplate my approach to this obsession I have. Maybe not so fast, not so aggressive and maybe just a bit more respect for snow and physics. Anyone go through this kind of reassessment after getting banged up and did it change you - for the better or worse?
