The Ankle

It sounds so simple, a sprained ankle. I never realized how bad they could be. I can't tolerate ice well and I'm already trying to compress but that's like trying to stop an avalanch with a snow shovel. The pain is horrible, it doesn't matter if I have the brace on or not. I have to use the brace for "walking" which is painful even when trying to avoid use of the leg. In short RSD sucks.

I'm noticing that the burning is more painful than it had been before the injury. It's hard to be positive right now. I worked for months to get strong on that crutch and I'm back to the walker again. Heal ankle, please heal.
