Ligaments, Schmigaments.

Today the dumbest thing happened. I sprained my ankle. Yup.

I was leaving the house to pick up my sister from school, and while I was on the last step, I put my right foot on the ground and for some reason I didn’t step on it right. All my pressure went on it and I heard five cracks and it buckled under me. The pain was excruciating to the point where I just didn’t get up off the ground and just clutched my leg and yelled out every curse word ever invented.

Needless to say I went to the ER, paid a $100 copay, only to find out that I didn’t break anything, just tore some ligaments. I’ve still have to wear a mobilizer until Friday morning when I go to my orthopedic appointment.

Because of this I’m now off from work until Tuesday of next week. I surely hope that by then I can put pressure on it, and stand for six or more hours, since that’s all I can do at work.


  1. Ouch! I hope it won’t take too long to heal. And it just had to happen right around holiday time! :/ Get better soon though! 🙂

  2. $100 copay?!

    I’m so glad I live in Canada *shudder*

    That’s an awful way to sprain an ankle. So casual sounding. Just take a step and… bang! Yikes!

  3. geeez Jordan… that must be hurt…. what even make it worst… you spend $100 for it? damn… anyway… i hope you will feel better soon 🙂

    Merry Christmas btw
