As another part of our support for injured athletes, we—Carrie and Cindy—operate a Facebook group that’s also called The Injured Athletes Club. It’s a thriving, positive community of other people who just plain get it.
We’re grateful for the way the group supports each other through the highs and lows of their recovery. And this week, in our final episode of season 3, we asked members for their questions about the psychological and emotional aspects of the journey. Here, Carrie responds to concerns about fears, doubts, and understanding what makes you tick, among other things.
