Posted: hi. i don't usually say much on here, i'm a quiet observer, but i recently had a bad injury so i am looking for words of wisdom. 3 months ago i broke my left arm in 5 places and now i have a metal plate in my arm and a wrist that doesn't work due to nerve damage. i can dance, but i just feel like i suck at poi. it's irritating not to be able to do things i worked hard to learn. i was just starting to perform and i'm feeling slightly discouraged at this set back. for the past 4 years poi has been my escape from anything bothering me and my favorite thing to do. i know i'll keep working at it harder than before; i guess i'm just looking for some encouragement or something. has anyone here had a similar experience? any advice to be offered? mj

My friend you got a biological body, not a car.
Take it easy, all it needs is time to heal. The more time and rest you give it (without overexertion and WITH as much rehab as possible) the better it will jump back to where it was before.
Many of us went through something like that and - trust me - your mind stores almost everything that you learned. As for the time being your body simply prohibits you to perform certain movements and pain is a remainder that there is something needing your attention...
Pushing yourself too far might only cause chronic injuries... Please - for your own sake - take it easy.
