It's been 4 months since I've been on a bike and it will probably be at least 2 more before I attempt another ride. Even so, I'm already beginning to feel anxious just thinking about bicycling again.
After I broke my elbows it took about a year and a half to overcome my anxiety. It seemed like every time that I thought I was putting the anxiety behind me I'd have another set back. I even visited with a psychologist for around 3 or 4 months. Last year I had a serious concussion, another relatively minor concussion and finally the broken hip. The 3 incidents don't have a lot in common other than all happened while riding bicycles. Mrs. Grouch has said she won't ride with me on our Screamer tandem anymore.
Honestly, As much as bicycling has been an important part of my life, I think that I'd rather give it up than struggle with the anxiety that I had following the last crash.
