Its been a while, been preoccupied with school, grades, work, health issues, family issues.
I should find something within myself in all this, and I do write, I just don’t feel like I’ve captured something someone else can related to when I re-read what I’ve written.
Hope this somehow makes sense. Going to try working towards it. :]
I want to do this so bad, I think its a great way to get more in touch with yourself
This is a super magical fairy tale I want to make happen
I think this will really help me appreciate the things I have and forget about the things I don’t.
I’m new to this site and I guess this is my first official goal :D
I had broken my ankle jumping down a flight of stairs on the 4th of March 2011. (I know, very very stupid. No alcohol or narcotics of any kind were attributed to this stupid behaviour. Just me and my sober self :/)
anyways. hours later at the hospital I was told it was a very bad sprain. Next week when it started looking worse it was upgraded to a Fractured Talus :(
I was put in a plaster cast after many x-rays and MRIs and just got the cast off on March 31 and currently am wearing a Walking Boot/Air Cast.
Usually surgery is required for a talus injury, but so far the doctors say that they have to wait to see how it heals before any surgery can be done.
I have been doing exercises, (just moving my ankle up and down, but it is painful and I can’t move it very much. I’d say more upwards than downwards though.)
Still can’t up like any weight on it, :( have been feeling very sad about being unable to do things for myself, upset about being away from school and missing so much class/assignments as exams are quickly approaching and being dumped by my bf.
Just need some support from others like me currently, because people really do try to help me, and they are glad to but they really don’t understand why I am so upset. Its not that I don’t appreciate them, I just want to be able to walk to the kitchen, grab something and walk back all by myself lol. Not exactly a goal that I would have thought to be very difficult before this whole ordeal haha, but shit happens.
Its still super swollen/bruised and disgusting, I feel like my calf has shrunk SO much. ugh. Its expected at the moment that I should be in this walking cast for 6 weeks, possibly another 6 weeks of physio and then walking shall be a possibility.
GOAL: walk again!
