So I never realized how dangerous cell phones were until earlier today. There I was walking outside to call a friend to see what I might want to do...

Pity I forgot about the second set of stairs.

So my foot went down where I didn't expect it, and I collapsed down on my foot.

Now one of the tendons or muscles or some such thing hurts, especially if I tried walking on it. Yes, doctor, I know I shouldn't walk on it, but what if I need to go to the bathroom or get a drink of water? Can I walk on it then?

That's one of the worst things about living alone, if you injure yourself or get really sick, you still have to take care of yourself.

Sorry to hear about your foot pain. If it still hurts tomorrow (today) you should prolly drag yourself to see a doctor about it. ASAP. And no bike riding, or lotsa walking. I hope it feels fine and well, but if it doesn't you could end up hurting it worse, and preventing it from healing. I know; been there.

Luv,
Mommy Clare

So if i spend the day slacking and staying off my foot, can I try procrastinating about the doctor until tomorrow? It still hurts today, but not as much as yesterday... though I haven't walked on it nearly as much...

Thanx for calling the doc and making an appointment. I'd hate to see you end up limping for months. Or having it heal wrong (or could I write "heel"!).

Thanks... this limping around is rather unpleasant... I had to use my car to get to work... I usually can walk or bike it easily... :(

I went to my doctor today and he poked a bit at it and had me get an x-ray.

Though it's getting to the point where I can stand on it without it hurting... I just can't flex my foot yet.
