So today ugh.

Today is PRIDE. I have been so excited to go to this event for EVER. I hurt my ankle day before yesterday. How, I have no idea. But my niece Nevaeh was staying the night, I took her swimming, we came home and got ready for our baths. All of a sudden this sharp pain shot thru my foot, and i couldnt walk on it. The pain was sooo horrific. But I refused to let it interfere with my time with my niece. So we continued on with our day. Yesterday Deliliah, Armida, my sister Shuston, her fiance Paul, and my nieces Nevaeh and Liliana had a bbq at a park near by. It was a great time.

Everyone kept yelling at me to keep sitting down and stop moving. I could hardly walk. It took everything I had not to let a tear come from eye each time I stepped down. I mean even just having my foot down it throbbed. I kept trying to elevate it because that is what you should do, but It hurts having any type of pressure on it. Its so swollen its disgusting. Anyhow I live on the 3rd story which is a lot of stairs. So after the bbq and going to the ER, where they said nothing showed in the x rays, and the only gave me 6 vicodin I bravely walked up to the apartment.

I then cried for a good 3 minutes because I was in so much pain walking up the stairs.

I have been in so much pain since. I did not get to go to PRIDE today, which really REALLY bums me out because I was looking forward to going for a LONG time. But I just cant to do it because it hurts too much.

Everyone else left me here alone. Gabys with Daniel, Deliliah is with her family & doing chores, and Armida is now out on a date. I am sitting here alone, and bummed. Trying not to think about it.

Keeping my foot iced, wishing I had more pain medication and a whopper meal sitting in front of me.

Peekaboo, I see you!

Well, I don't... I see the entry... Whatever, it was supposed to be a cute way to say hello.

Is the ankle sprained at all? Because if so, I have the perfect aid; soak your foot/ankle in a mixture of warm water and vinegar. Srsly. Vinegar. Speaking as someone who spent half her life on a sprained ankle, I'm telling you, it helps big time. It can be so badly sprained that you can't walk on it, but after a while of soaking in that mix, you'll be walking almost like normal, if only for a while, in which case you soak some more!
Of course this may be pointless, because random shooting pain sounds less sprain-y and more... weird-y. And I hope it fixes itself soon. Being in so much pain that there are tears is never a good thing.
I am off to send you a message now :) Try to smile big, lass!

I will definitely have to try that remedy. I am all about homemade goodness.

The swelling has gone down a lot since I have been keeping it elevated and iced. Though it still hurts like a mofo, walking on it is getting easier.

I have no idea what happened. I have never injured myself before.

Off to try that remedy!
