In 2014, between productions, I (Cristin), fell while rock climbing, and broke EVERYTHING.
Well, to be more specific, I broke my back, my pelvis, my wrist. Many of you know the physical demands of production, especially on location. After being emergency evacuated off the mountain (for the second time in my life), I was barely walking, weeks after the fall.
On day 1 of the production, I took more steps on my trusted walker than I had in the previous 4 weeks combined. By the end of the shoot, 2.5 weeks later, I progressed to a cane, and could stand on my own for upwards of 30 minutes.
Sometimes, when the phone rings, regardless of where you are physically and mentally, you say YES. You dig into yourself, lean on your team, and slowly watch your body heal with the help and support of colleagues, but really, friends.
