Diary of a Dislocated Ankle

Okay so maybe I should have started this a month ago but I didn' I'll just catch you up to speed.

November 22nd -

15 minutes in to my soccer game I end up blocking a shot (YEAH!), getting kicked (NOOO) and falling on my ankle. My whole body was forced to the left and my ankle went to the right. I completely dislocated my ankle without a break or tearing my ligiments which is unheard of. My ankle, if you can imagin it, was hanging onto my body by my skin and fully stretched and out of shape ligiments. I can truly say that it was the most painful experience of my life!! I got rushed to the hospital and got many many shots of morphine. I was high as a kite but the pain was still insane.

The girl who kicked me walked away laughing (I was told)...still don't know what to think about that. She is just a youngin and probably figured I deserved it because I am a very agressive player....not dirty, just agressive. So I think that when she tackled me she went in extra hard thinking she would 'teach me a lesson' . Which she did...

Lesson Learned: Don't let girls kick you in the ankle...and if they ever day allow karma to teach them a lesson! (karma is the name I give to whichever of my feet is stronger the next time I play her!) bahaha

It is now boxing day, and in the last month I can tell you that I have not slept properly for one night, so i'm sure that my boyfriend thinks i'm crazy and grumpy (which I can attest to). I have suffered through a hard cast for almost a month, had to go the emeregency room to make sure I didn't have bloodclots and bouts of depression come and go everyday. Don't judge me....I can't walk and am used to being active almost every day. This is literally killing me. Atleast i'm in a funky new air cast so I can hobble down the streets. My nickname has turned from miss crutches to things like miss hobble alot...very original I might add. (GAWD)

I hope I can figure out how to post pictures because I'd like to share with the blog world how ugly my foot looked. I must venture back into work mode (yes i'm working boxing day, with a banged up foot) because I'm becoming a teacher and money needs to be made.
