3 hours, 6 x-rays and two sets of crossed fingers later ..... the doctor announced it´s a sprained ankle and torn ligaments. Yeah! I´m honestly thrilled not to have to be in a cast for the next 8 weeks. (I have already broken both feet and my left leg) My neurological disease (CMT) makes falls very common. The problem (besides possible fractures - is getting up. The muscles in the legs are so wasted it´s very, very difficult - add nearly 100 pounds of excess weight into that equation.... and you get the picture. My husband can´t pick me up. I literally have to haul myself up with my arms on to the sofa or bed. It´s NOT easy as my hands are very weak too from the disease. If I fall down in the street - I don´t know what I´ll do. (probably die of embarrassment before anything else)
So - all this has really brought home how ESSENTIAL it is that I lose weight NOW. Talk about waiting for a sign.
The Universe is literally DRAWING ME A PICTURE!
