Stop tripping me!!



I decided yesterday I was going to start walking everyday, this was going to be my exercise! So, off I was, Casting Crowns in the CD Walkman. Praising a long, praying for some people who's house I passed, and BAM! That little booger satan tripped me. Couldn't be that I was clumsy or anything! Sprained my ankle, it looks like someone stuck a golf ball under my skin where my cute ankle used to be. It hurts! Now I will have to wait until my ankle heals to begin walking!

I hate it when that happens, I get motivated to really start, then I get a road block. The funny thing?! I've sprained my ankle a lot of times in my life, but I only do it in tennis shoes, never in heels! Isn't that crazy!? So now I am just going to get my muscles moving by stretching every day for 1/2 hour!

Who knows, maybe something worse could have happened, maybe I could have been further from home and I wouldn't have been able to hobble home. But my ankle hurts... gotta go to my dad's to get the crutches!!

Owcchhh! That's not good. I'll be praying for a super speedy recovery and that your cute little ankle is back to normal soon!

OUCH! will you still go to work? That totally stinks, I hurt my ankle a couple of weeks ago and thought I was going to die, it hurt so bad

I've never sprained my ankle while wearing heels either.

My wife turned her ankle last year and was in so much pain that for three weeks I had to serve her hand and foot. It was good for both of us.

Hope you heel up quicker than Ginny did.

I'm doing ok, now that i have it wrapped up... I was able to walk on it... want to know something crazy?? when I have a small heel (2") on it doesn't hurt, when I walk around in my bare feet or flats... Ouch!! I have a HUGE arch because of the shoes I wear...

This is probably one of my "better" sprains...

the wearing of a heel greater than 1.5" streches the tendon along the bottom of the foot that runs through the achilles hence the relief when wearing a slightly elevated heel!

OUCH! so sorry to hear that! Hope it feels better soon.
