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.
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!
