Earlier this evening I was feeling a pinched nerve in my ankle, so thinking it was just the tube-sock-bandage I rolled it back to survey the damage. The view horrified me in an instant. I had no idea how far the bruising extended – I thought it was solely confined to the ankle. Now I can see why ankle, toes, heel, muscles, and more parts of my body hurt so much. Even my back hurts! Check it out!
Faaark me! No wonder I can’t walk on it! I occasionally stumble across the room without the crutch, bouncing on my left foot. When it feels less painful, I attempt walking with both feet, but invariably I stumble and resume bouncing. Not a smart move.
Aaaargh, I really wish this hadn’t happened. Yet, thankfully, I know it will heal and I will recover eventually. Because I have done far worse than this to my body. I’m still not ready to tell the tales of other injuries I have had.
