Not too many people know or even notice that I have chronic knee issues.
I pack more than the average Joe everytime I hit the field, to the point of overduing it in some peoples opinions.
I basicly carry the max load I know my body will allow that day, sometimes it more sometimes it's less. I'm also diabetic... now that scares me sometimes. What if I fall unconcious on the field and people don't notice I went missing. That's why I have a few good friends that I trust will keep an eye on me.
I had to quite in the middle of events due to health concerns, being a very proud individual this is very hard for me. I'm not a weak individual by any means, btu I'm getting old...er and I have to accept it.
Haggis, I think a few of us can... well... feel your pain.
