Dislocated my shoulder

Yup. It happened again. Its my old Arnis injury (mario vs tire, tire wins!) where my right shoulder gets dislocated. 3 years it has been since it last happened.

This time, due to stress, i finally snapped and threw a shoe at a wall. Harmless stress relief, right? Heck its better than a chair, ala Steve Balmer.

(It finally happened. "UP teacher nag-amok, balikat, patay! Mamaya sa Saksi!")

But again, due to the force and the weakness of my right shoulder socket, my arm popped right out. I was quickly rushed to the hospital and given drugs (yup, it was that painful). It took three guys to wrestle my arm back into position. As I
was waiting for them to give me the drugs to put me to sleep, it wasnt really the pain that made me feel bad. Its the sheer utter stupidiy of it all. And embarrassment, something like wanting to crawl up in a hole and die.

And it cost me 4K. And two weeks with my right arm in a sling.

I'd like to think there's a lesson to all of this. Like "don't lose your temper" or "try to relax a little bit more" or "it can all come to a complete stop" or "think about your health" etc. But I dont feel it (you have to feel the life lesson, right). I keep on replaying the moments leading up to the accident, all of it seemingly inevitable, something any sane person would do to keep sane.

So right now, the only life lesson got is "dont use your right arm to throw shoes"

Stupid, just plain stupid....

PS: Oh, and the last time this happened? I sneezed and my arm fell off. Really.

Winston Churchill had the same problem which didn't make it easy for him playing Polo in the twilight days of the Raj.
