So pirouettes aren’t my thing.

I was back in the emergency department last thursday morning not for my usual MRI but this time for an Xray on what we thought was a broken left foot. I managed to roll over it on wednesday night and although it wasn’t that painful, when I woke up on Thursday I couldn’t walk. So, suspecting the worst and expecting to spend the next 6 to 8 weeks in a cast I was not the happiest camper. The news was bittersweet, but since it took 3 hours to get it I had almost forgotten what I was there for. Apparently I had sprained the ligament in my foot so badly that it has ripped a small chunk of bone off the metacarpal bones of my foot (?). Sadly there is nothing they can do for it as far as immobilizing it or casting it so I am stuck with an invisible injury that is frankly insanely painful at time…

Add that to the fact that I once again just recovered from ANOTHER month off work with a painful back culminating in another MRI which sadly (in a way) remains unchanged. Not that it feels that way, in fact it feels different now than it ever has. I am at a point where I am seemingly permanently being overly careful, of course I can’t walk as much at the moment due to the foot thing so that doesn’t help but I am getting close to the end of my rope once again with my stupid body.
