I still love gymnastics, and most likely it wouldv'e gotten me a college scholarship, but I'm guessing I would have burnt out from it by the time I got to high school. I didn't want to be stuck doing 1 sport, and one sport only every day of my life. Instead, I moved on and played three sports growing up. One of which got me a college scholarship. :) In college, I decided to try a new sport, lacrosse, in the spring season. Well, I picked that up pretty quickly and became a two sport D-1 athlete. That would not have happened if I was doing gymnastics. And as you pointed out, I would have most likely ended up in the hospital due to a very bad ED. Sometimes I wonder if that would have been better. Then maybe I would have gotten more intense help sooner and wouldn't have an ED 21 years later. I guess we'll never know.
