Just need to whine. Yet again, I've sprained an ankle.
Background - I sprained my right ankle in November, it's healed, not sore. This is my left now. I've had a sprain at least once a year for as long as I remember. Knees and ankles mostly, wrists go out at times.
Info - I was walking from our music/library (wood floors) to the kitchen. I had on my gripper toe socks, so I had good traction. No toys - kid, dog or cat - on the floor. Light was on, not ultra bright, but comfortable reading level. My one "bad" was I left my reading glasses on vs regular, but for being inside, the shirt focal distance isn't bad unless I try to walk down steps which I didn't need to.
So, stupid me puts my foot down and roll it went. Ugh. Plus, since it was hard enough to subluxate my ankle in and up, my knee is really annoyed. Everything is taped up, been icing both joints. Getting very impressive bruising from weight on outside ankle and just hitting the ground.
Plus, our idiot ER will just poke my ankle, maybe xray which won't show anything, do a less supportive wrap and tell me to take OTC pain killers. So not worth getting dressed again, loading daughter up and going in. At least I have a little leftover Vicodin from last time, my doctor usually writes me a few extra days worth so I can start them if I do this when his office is closed.
This is why I don't wear heels. Ever.
