It wasn't a severe sprain after all...

So it turns out I didn't sprain my ankle like the ER doctor had told me after my x-rays. I had an appointment with my primary doctor that following Monday and he wanted me to get an MRI so I can get a better look at my ankle.

Well I went to the hospital and had to fill out some paperwork before I had to change into some loose fitting scrubs that were terrible, they didn't even feel like actual scrubs! Well I got the MRI and I had to stay very still for about 30 minutes while they did the MRI, I just listened to country music on the radio.

Afterwards, they just took me back to the room I was at before, I got dressed again, and I got to go get the boot i was ordered. Well I had to wait in this empty room for about 35 minutes with my dad waiting to go back and get my boot. It was really long and annoying. I wanted to rewind back to when this happened and fall on my face, instead of landing on my foot. I can handle a broken nose better...

Well the boot fit snug and it was a fancy, expensive boot that I wished I didn't need, but knew was necessary. I spend the day doing all this and it was really annoying not to be able to walk anywhere.

The MRI said that I had a Torn Ligament and it would take longer to heal then a sprain would... PERFECT!!

This is all putting a kink in my plans. I can't exercise very well if I can't use my foot. I can't lose weight in my gut at least. I really hate this is all... Sorry if I ranted a little to much.

Sprained my ankle

I was in weight training yesterday and we were running (and jumping) over boxes (these obstacles not very high) and I tripped over one and started to stumble half way through them so I kept jumping over them, trying to catch myself and I ending up stopping and catching myself on my right foot.

Well I don't remember exactly what happened after that, other then it hurt LIKE HELL to walk or move my foot. I went to the nurse (with the help of someone letting me put my weight on them) and I had to go home. The nurse said it was either broken or sprained. My mom got me and took me to the ER and I spent 6 hours, mostly waiting around.

Well we found I had a severe sprain and I needed a splint and to use crutches. Right now, its so hard to get used too because I feel dumb not being very good at using the crutches, but I guess it takes time...

I won't be able to do squat in Weight Training for awhile, even though the doctor said I should be fine by Monday. I don't know, I have to keep it elevated when I can and that's hard to do. I can't believe this happened to me!

I guess that's all I can say... I just hope I can get better fast because I can't lose weight with a sprained ankle because I can hardly hobble across a room...
