I was in an inpatient rehab with a d1 college soccer player in the US. Broke his ankle, got on opiates, took them as prescribed, never made it back on the field because his scripts ran out and he still hurt.

The worst part is it's his fault sort of, but I mean that's just about an impossible situation to win. I know I'd have failed there. I don't know many people who'd have been capable of running their lives correctly like that. It's not really his fault, at least not entirely. He was failed by society and couldn't fix it himself.

You’d think the uni would bend over backwards to make sure he could get on the field again, the best specialists, etc. That’s really sad. I wonder if it still pains him today.
