Apparently, I have an extra bone in my right foot that puts me at a mechanical disadvantage and makes me more likely to sprain my ankle. My left foot does not have the same design, so my mutancy is mis-matched. The bone was probably a contributing factor to my ankle injury, but it did not put the orthopedic boot on my foot. I’ve been wearing the boot for approximately two weeks, and I am hopeful (but not confident) that I’ll be released from my podiatric prison on Thursday.
This is the most scarring experience in my life from the past month — which might explain why I haven’t been blogging very much. Over the past couple of years, I’ve mostly been using my blog to reflect on areas of my life I want to improve and negative experiences I’m trying to process. I haven’t had any negative experiences recently. I still have areas I want to improve (hello, weight management) but nothing really driving me to distraction.
So, in this instance I guess silence is golden. I’m happy. I love my new job, and I have tons of (positive) challenges ahead of me. I often get to commute to work with Per, which has been fun and much less stressful. They feed me well at work (hello, weight management my old nemesis). I have fantastic friends and I feel loved and connected.
So, other than that mutant ankle, the most amazing phenomenon has occurred. I have Nothing to Complain About. Stay tuned for my next post, since I’m sure this condition will change quickly…such are the vagaries of life.
