I don't need money to board, I bought my season pass long before the season even began and the trip I have planned comprises of 3 free tickets that come with that season pass. The only thing it ever costs me is gas and thats if I even drive which has been rare lately. Thank your for your advice before telling me how to use my money, but that's not what I asked for. If you actually read the whole thread instead of being a smartass you'd see I made a doctors appointment. I just wanted to see how it was for a few days and get some advice before making that decision.

You asked for advice, so I gave it to you. I wasn't even attempting to be a smart-ass (and by pay to board, yes, I referred to any and all costs, incl gas, lift tickets/season pass, whatever). Sorry you don't like the advice given to you, but it is what it is, and I'm not changing my opinion. No one, not even a physician, would be comfortable in giving you advice for a shoulder problem relating to an acute fall without having seen it in person.

EDIT: oh, and I never implied that you were not going to see a doctor, just that anything we tell you here will be half-assed compared to a personal investigation. You think I wrote that previous post detailing the muscles, the motions, and so on just to be a smart-ass?

I thanked you for the useful advice, it was the comment "You can find the money to board? Then find the money to see a doctor" that came across as a smartass comment, the kind of thing my mom would say. At worst it costs me a whole $4 in gas to get to my mountain and back in a Subaru, kind of a perk when you live 10 minutes away. I don't know how much money you spend in gas etc. to ride but for me it could definitely never add up to the cost of going to a doctors office, getting diagnosed, picking up any needed meds, paying for physical therapy etc. And if it makes any sense, I haven't even spent that money to go riding because I am going to the doc on Monday. Maybe I'm in a shit mood over this whole thing but that just seemed like a dick comment to me. Most people would react the same way being told that they are irresponsible and need to plan their money out better (I know you didn't say that in those words but your comment sure beamed it out). Once again, thank you for the first set of advice, but I don't need your financial wisdom.

(sigh) All I meant by that comment, the one that seemed to torque you off so much, was that the cost of the occasional doctor's visit should be factored into one's budget for snowboarding, in addition to the costs of driving, lift tickets, etc. I just find it irksome when people do any kind of sporting activity, suffer an injury, but then try and justify not getting assessed because they either can't afford it/don't want to spend the money.

I am NOT implying that you did this earlier in this thread, but I have already seen it in other threads by other people, so I made that comment. I apologize if you thought I was accusing you of being fiscally irresponsible, that wasn't my intent. It was meant to be something like saying "bumps and scrapes are just a part of playing the game." And this statement is not to assume you didn't know that, either. That's it. No rancor, no sarcasm, certainly not said in any attempt at being a "dick." You read way too much into it. I'm glad you are going to the doctor and I look forward to you posting an update afterwards on what he/she thinks it is, and hopefully it is nothing that will sideline you for too long.

We're all here for the same reason, to share info and help one another out, so let's just try to afford one another the occasional misstep over the internet without always assuming the worst.
