Guess who managed to break her foot by WALKING!
Yeeeeah… I went to a nearby city to do some shopping, as I desperately needed some new tops and whatnot.
Normally, because of my POTS, I make several stops throughout the day because I have to rest and make sure I don’t use up all of my spoons (energy) at once. But this time, I was alone and I wanted to prove I could do it fine by myself.
After walking around for nearly four hours, I was starting to limp. By the time I got home, my foot was very swollen and uncomfortable in my shoe. By Saturday, it was aching like crazy. And by Sunday, I couldn’t put any weight on the pads of my foot or my toes.
Today, I went to Minor Injuries and they took an x-ray. They’ve said that the ligament has been torn, and where the ligament anchors to the bone, a bloody great big chip of bone has come away. 😬 It fricking hurts.
So, I’m stuck in this wonderfully GLAMOROUS and STYLISH shoe for the next 4-6 weeks!
