Cognitive Connection: February 19

Cupcake down. Image courtesy of stock.xchng®You may recall me mentioning a spill and injured ankles two weeks ago. At the time, I was in pain, but determined I’d be just fine. I had things to do and I don’t like being slowed down. Finally, today, I went to the doctor. I figured I’d be told to keep up with RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) and be sent on my way. Not so. I actually fractured my ankle and now have to keep all weight off of it. Oops. There is nothing like having a broken ankle in a boot and sprained ankle to do all the lifting.

So this statement is for my honey, who’s doing everything right now: I should have gone to the doctor two weeks ago. Lesson learned!

Now, on with the reading.

  1. I feel your pain… I broke my ankle (while walking the dog, of all things) at the same time that I was studying for the bar exam. After a day or so of self-pity, I adopted a healthy chip on my shoulder that helped motivate me through the remainder of my studies. But that boot still gives me nightmares.

    Hang in there… after all, if it doesn’t kill you, it makes you stronger!
