I had a tibial plateau fracture, Schatzen II on 3.12.2013 and several knee surgeons told me I’ll be never able to run again. See my posting “Desperate, knee still stiff …”.
More important for me is being able to sit on my knees again (for yoga, gardening, cleaning).

But what when I eventually can walk without brace and crutch?!
Many drivers expect the pedestrian to speed up when crossing, so they don’t have to slow down or come to a halt. They can’t know that I won’t be able to run, if they drive towards me. Unfortunately, Belgium is populated with many reckless and unsafe drivers …
