I Did It Again...

I fell at work. Again. This time, instead of hurting my hand, I've royally f***ed up my left ankle. It hurts like hell. Severe sprain, and here I am hobbling around on it. I'm thinking I may call off work, even though I have an interview scheduled this afternoon and one tomorrow--it's going to be better for me to stay off this leg as much as possible.

Although I have set a record...I went more than two years without spraining an ankle. Hah!

Ack! *hugs* After last year's Broken Ankle from Hell, I always cringe when I hear about ankle injuries. Do take it easy!

Oh, lord! We're going to have keep you in a padded room.

Sorry you got hurt, hon.

Geeze Sherrill, you remind me of myself! Please, get it x-rayed - I thought mine was a bad sprain too and a month later I find out I've been walking around on a broken ankle.

Thanks, Tori. I've had my foot propped up and have been icing it periodically. The pain is mostly gone (only if I try to flex it too much to the right), though there's still some puffiness.

Maria, hon, I think I could manage to hurt myself even in a padded room. There have been too many times where I've tripped over nothing. Nothing, I tell you!

Thanks, kk. I'm pretty sure this is just a sprain--it's tracking pretty much like previous sprains I've had, and I've had plenty! But I'll keep a close eye on it and if I'm still having issues with it in another week or so, I'll definitely be seeing my doc. :)
