I broke my ankle last Thursday. Slipped on the ice at my brother’s house. Now, I’ve had injuries and been laid up before. My 2nd & 3rd degree burned legs and my peritonitis surgery hurt MUCH worse. But this is a huge pain in the tush. Mostly because I am soooooooo overweight. I think inconvenience=lack of mobility x time – pain. Because when you’re in a great deal of pain, you don’t notice as much that you can’t do stuff. For instance, I couldn’t really walk when I burned my legs, either. Couldn’t even lower them because it would cause the legs to instantly swell and pull the burned skin, causing excruciating pain. But a) I wasn’t so overweight, b) it didn’t last as long as this probably will, and c) it hurt so badly that I didn’t notice I was immobile. Plus it was probably affected by the fact that I technically could put both feet on the ground, even though it hurt terribly.
Broken Ankle wah wah wah
Luckily my Mom is here right now to help watch my brother’s kids (which is the reason I came down in the first place) and Jake is driving down Friday to pick me up since I can’t drive. And I’m getting used to it. It’s just annoying.
So if anyone wants to come visit me while I’m in Utah or while I’m laid up in Idaho, give me a call! I’m so bored!
