This doesn't happen to normal people.

Last night, I was working on a side project and stayed up (awake) too late/long. Woke up AT the computer (a scant week after the eye-meets-monitor incident), swung around in my computer chair, and HOPPED on my feet.

I literally heard a *snap* sound when my right food made contact with the floor. /Almost/ passed out from the pain. Had a sleepy (Klonopin-induced) thought that I probably fractured a bone (my feet are slender).

This morning? OMG. PAIN. THE PAIN. It's only slightly swollen, but I'm pretty sure that yup, I broke a freakin' bone on the SIDE OF MY FOOT hopping out of the chair last night.


Open letter to my higher power:

Dear God:

I know the deathmobile was acting up worse yesterday, but PLEASEPLEASEPLEASE let it make it through today, so that I can at least have it looked at this weekend. Really, I'm freaking right on out.

Plus, You wouldn't make me stand outside waiting for help on a broken foot would Ya? Also, I promise to work on that road rage thing BIG TIME if You'll work with me on this one.

Oh yeah...if You could help with rent, I'd appreciate that, too. And also help me find SOMETHING ELSE THAT WON'T EAT HALF MY SALARY. And a new landlord who won't arbitrarily raise the rent.

Thank You for any consideration You might throw my way.

Love --
Your humble but scared and in pain servant

In good news, there's /almost/ nothing better than waking up to "Turner & Hooch" when it starts on cable. :> :> :> Great movie :)

Oh lordy!!! I really hope your foot gets better---fast!!! =( That MUST be painful!

Hang in there!

I mean, WHO DOES THAT HAPPEN TO?? I looked at it closely a minute ago, and it's swollen. Not much, but swollen. I'm sure it's not a tendon/ligament. It's a fractured bone!!! Ackkk!!!

I hope you're feeling better today! =) Just imagine me hobbling around on a broken foot. That'll make ya laugh :D

That's EXACTLY how I popped the tendon in my foot last fall, remember? I thought I broke something too. Hopefully that's all it is :-) It still hurt like a bitch, but it was better in two weeks.

THE FIRST THING THIS MORNING, I remembered your foot, and thought "it /could/ be a tendon..."...but last night, I heard it CRACK (and I almost passed out, which is what ALWAYS happens when I break a bone).

This morning, I showed it to one of our nurses (I work in their area now), and she said "woah...that's a fracture, I'd bet on it. You need an x-ray!"


Um...driving a stick with a foot broken = NO FUN, especially when my car is all..grRRrr. Yeah. Not gonna ruin all day today thinking about that POS.

She said that it looked like a break for a couple of reasons (swelling, etc. etc.). Ugh!!!!!!!! I've had sprains and torn ligaments before, and I've gotta say that THOSE are more painful than a broken bone for some reason. I can /barely/ put any pressure at ALL on the front of my foot, and am kinda walking on my heel (and slowly). Er...it's funny if you see me hobbling down the hall. :D LOL.

What's that old saying? If it werent for bad luck Id have no luck at all? Im beginning to think your cursed!

Ankle pain never good. I have weak ankles and have broken/sprained, strained them more times than I can count. I feel for you and your pained ankle and hope that you see a Dr soon who will tell you that it isnt broken:(

Poor lady. I hope that you get better!

Sprains hurt a LOT WORSE than breaking a bone. It would do NO good to see a doctor. It's on the top-side of my right foot (the little bones). All they /might/ do is put one of those stupid foot-things on me and I'm NOT wearing one. >: o

So I'm hobbling down the hallway. It's great comedic relief for my co-workers, however. :> See how CRUEL THEY ARE TO ME? Hahaha :> I asked for it. ;-)

Yeah, perhaps they might only give you an ace bandage, but then again, they may offer pain killers, which are always good for a nice night cap:/ And if they gave you crutches, at least you would have a weapon to defend yourself against your cruel co-workers. So there is always that. Hehe.
Feb. 10th, 2006 09:06 pm (UTC)
Can't take pain killers because I'm on the patch. Too paranoid/scared/staying away to take them now. Soooooooo that's scratched. I have crutches (and a wheelchair, too). So...grrrRRr. I'm thinking all I would achieve would be a HUGE BILL like the one I had to pay for strep (just to affirm what I already knew...ugh). Cannot afford it, especially with my car getting WORSE AND WORSE. YIKES. It's tolerable pain. Then again, I have a VERY high pain tolerance. :>
Feb. 10th, 2006 09:18 pm (UTC)
Yeah, me too - having a high tollerance of pain. Ive had a few knee surgeries and some major health scares as a kid (although nothing nearly as serious as some of the things you have gone through), it certainly helped my constitution as a person by giving me the ability to deal with not only pain, but problems in general. So easily I could turn this conversation into sex talk, but I will refrain, for now;) Hehe, pain;)
Feb. 10th, 2006 11:36 pm (UTC)
Agreed. Learning to deal and live with pain helps build you in many different ways. :>

*avoids all the sessay talk, lest I get all frustrated :> *

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
