Injuries I have or had

This page gives a list of "injuries" I have or had. I'm not counting cuts, bruises, or things that go away after a day or two.


I'll tell you why.

Every time I get an "injury" of some sort, I tend to think the worst, and expect whatever is wrong to remain wrong forever. However, the truth is that every single "injury" I've ever had has been resolved, or at least I know how to resolve it or make symptoms go away. The purpose of this page is to make me finally understand this.

As a disclaimer, "injury" here mostly means weird muscle or joint pain, rather than broken bones or severed limbs.

I start counting at around the start of 2020. The idea is to go through this list every once in a while, and mark items "gone" when they are resolved.
