I need help... I'm 15, I am a gymnast, and I have worked super hard to be where I am right now. I'm proud of all my accomplishments and I proved to myself through this sport that I truly can do anything I put my effort towards. But, there's a down side... First lets go way back. I started gymnastics @ 13, no experience, I was super weak, and I was incredibly inflexible. I progressed very fast through the levels of our gym and passed levels some girls were stuck in for years. I made it to excel gold (which is what I am in now), and my coach is trying to get me to excel Platinum. I am taller than most girls which makes almost everything harder for me than it is for them. I feel like I am always getting inquiries while other 4ft girls haven't gotten an injury in years. Currently, I have a stress fracture in my back, my ankle feels like it's sprained all the time and it WON'T go away! My wrist has on and off bad days where any pressure on it hurts, and I get a rip every single practice. I am the worst on the "excel Platinum" team because I'm not as good as the other girls since I don't have the basic experience they do. I mean they've been in gymnastics for like 7 years! I also don't have that love for the sport any more like I used to. For so long I was a "gymnast", I loved it, I did it every where, all I thought about was gymnastics. And I don't know if it's because I'm older but now I just don't love it. I don't like the inquiries, I hate trying new passes because of mental blocks, and I'm getting older. I'm a sophomore in highschool so finding that time to practice gymnastics sometimes feels impossible and almost interfering with my school work. Almost everytime I have to go to gymnastics I'm like dreading it. Some days it's fun and then I don't want to quit but more often then not, I don't like it. I really want to try volleyball but I'm not allowed to till I'm done with gym. And I do not want to compete this year because I feel like I'll be terrible. Please help, I don't know what to do!
