More on the Ouch.

I have injured this body of mine before. Once, the same foot I'm currently complaining about was caught by the back end of a 4 ton forklift. Those things steer from the rear, which means you need to keep your eyes open when they come whipping around a corner. It rode up my ankle and left some crazy bruises.

Come to think of it, that same foot was caught by the rear wheel of a car as I stepped out the back door a bit prematurely.

I had a nasty mountain biking incident in Alaska, which left me with more gravel and stones on my left side than skin. (One of the stones that lodged in my ribs was rude enough to go through my favorite t-shirt.)

A rollerblading incident did me the same favor, but to my legs.

I've never broken a bone.

Seems I've squeaked out of a near bone break this time also, but my goodness, it doesn't look happy.

Apologies for the visual display below, but I had to share.

Just use this.


Ewww! That looks awful! I hope it heals faster than it looks like it will. You're gonna be gimpy for weeks. I was gimpy for most of a week anyway, having bruised the ball of my foot in some unknown way, I was barely walking for a couple days but I switched to sneakers instead of my new Doc Martin slippers and that seems to have helped. Which says bad things about my slippers. Anyway *hugs* and I hope you feel better soon. :)
