I twisted my ankle Friday morning! I was in cranky mood... wearing my "abaya" and heading to a funeral... I tripped on the stairs and twisted my right ankle!

Like I needed the extra stress now!

I then continued my day with no problem! At some point in the evening, I felt a tingling pain! It hurts the most when I walk or step on my right foot..

Saturday, I went to a staff event. My dad told me to wear flat shoes... I was a good girl and I listened! It was ok, but still my foot hurt! I have been taking Ibuprofen two nights in a row! It helped.. but now at work I twisted my ankle AGAIN! OUCH!

Its not swollen but it hurts! I dont want to go check! I am fine! But I guess I needed to vent here on the blog! So thank you for listening... or in our case; READING!
