Another perk to having nerve damage in my feet is the inability to play a sport I’ve loved for years. Volleyball. I played it in middle school, high school, college, city league and a beach league. To say I’ve missed it is an understatement.
A couple months ago, my sister told me of her friend who wanted to hire a private coach for her daughter, and I was mentioned. After some talking and scheduling, I now coach her one on one once a week in their big barn.
It feels so good to touch the ball again. I’ve never actually coached before, but it’s something I’ve always thought about and am really enjoying.
If I can’t fully play the game anymore, this will be my way to get as close as possible to it.
..even if the dust from the barn gives me a bad sinus infection every week.
So even though I have limitations, I’m finding ways to get around it so I can still enjoy a sport I’ve loved for as long as I can remember, and that one day a week sure makes me happy.
