Just call me GRACE....

OW ...

Got up early this morning to take the car to the dealership and as Mom and I are walking out after dropping the car off...

the outside of my left foot hits the crack in the pavement at JUST the right *BAD* angle

WHAM

Flat on my back in the parking lot, left ankle FUCKED, right KNEE FUCKED, RIght Hip FUCKED...

OUCH

Dude at Car lot: "Can I get you anything?"

ME: "How about my Pride back?"

They help me up and I limp home before heading out to work... (climb 2 flights of stairs just to get to my desk, and up and down them three more times for breaks and lunch) ... as the day progressed? boy I swelled like a Mo-Fo. My last break I had to truck myself to the other end of the building (and I work in a LARGE building) to take the elevator cause taking stairs was NOT gonna happen.

Fall 8am
Really painful by 4:30
Agony by 8:00

Where's my Ibuprofen?

*cries*

I can barely walk on it.

And to top it all off, they couldn't find the "problem" that I seem to have NO PROBLEM HAVING.

It's nothing MAJOR, and I bet when the starter switch mecahnism fails they'll find it then.

AH well, it's not major and I won't cry over something little, I'm just irritated.

and sore.

Ouch, that sounds horrible! Feel better soon, and take things as easy as you can, especially in case there's any soft tissue damage.

*sends you Aleve* I love that drug, it makes all the bad things go away. Hate to be devil's advocate, but it will probably hurt worse tomorrow. >_< Sprains suck.

I have sprained my ankles innumerable times over the years. I have severely weak ankles. I was born massively pigeon toed and I wore those forrest gump type leg cables until I was three or so.

I have perfectly straight feet now and incredibly flexible (I can turn them almost all the way around.) But the draw back is because of the tinkering with my ankles and feet, they are really suseptible to sprains.

I'll need my cane and brace tomorrow no doubt.

ouch. Poor you! Go to the doctors and let them take a look at it. They can give you pain meds at best. I fell down concrete steps at school a week ago and landed on my knees. Doc gave me codine, and it works /really/ well.

I'd offer you some, but its kind of hard to give to you through the internet ^^

(yeah I'm a dork)

Yikes. I'm sorry you hurt yourself. At least it didn't happen the day before Yaoi Con. *tries to see the bright side of this*

Be sure to take it easy over the weekend.

And it always has to happen in public, doesn't it? Graceless moments *never* happen in private, where you're free to pretend you didn't just take a ridiculous header into the floor. :-p

I'll share my BenGay with you at the con.
