    My parents made me quit dance a yesterday. I love it so much. And it’s been really hard on me but they think God is saying to quit? How do I deal with being super upset?

    I just decided to quit my sport yesterday, and I’m devasted , the was so much more i wanted to do but this injury doesn’t let me even move for more than 5 min i tried rehab for months but it just isn’t helping , so yesterday i took the call to end it because now it just seems impossible, i waited 3 years for me to be okay but it’s still the same, it’s just devastating, ive spent 11 year’s in this game and this is not how i thought it would end, i feel like I’ve lost who i am as a person and i have no idea what to do now, it hurts so much

      Hello Shruti, I am in a very similar situation to you. Have done all of the rehab for years as a soccer player and nothing has helped. How have you dealt with this problem since then?

    It wasn’t a sport exactly but…who needs a tuba player? I wasn’t great but I loved marching band, the parades, the whole team spirit, and I could whip out a chromatic scale in a playoff challenge like nobody’s business. (At least that’s how I remember it.) We ran laps for conditioning, lifted weights to handle our heavy’s twenty years later and I walk into work, hear the warm up drills from the high school, and really just want to be there. Band nerds seldom have a place to go. I’ve tried taking up running but it’s not the same.

    Didn’t even have a medical leave for hockey, I just aged out of it. I would bug my parents to let me play hockey and when I was 11 they finally did, and I was good at it. I played nonstop for 8 years and it’s all I thought about, but now that it’s gone I don’t know what to do. This post helped though and it was nice to read and relate to other people

        Did you get over it. I quit my sport today and I already feel weird and I don’t know what to do.

    Couldn’t agree more! It is definitely a distinct psychological transition and often a life crisis for the athlete. My son went through it and it was very difficult. He and I started a nonprofit that provides free resources and support services to medically disqualified athletes or any athlete who has a medical exit from the sport they love. If you want to connect, reach out via our website We can help your school’s permanently sidelined athletes in their transition process at no cost.
