My life is so hard you have no idea the struggles I go through.

Can you reach the cord to unplug it? I'm familiar with the struggle.

RE: Ranting corner
So I went adventuring last night and we were gonna light a flare in a sludge field and it was going to be soooo awesome. But no. I caught my boot on a tree root while I was running down the path,felt these sickening pops and crunching and my left ankle rolling as I fell to the ground screaming.

I can't put any weight on my foot at all. Not even my toes. I've sprained my ankle plenty of times, but I could still put weight on the ball of my foot. So then I had to fucking hop on one foot back to the car back through the muddy path...uphill. We went and got an ace wrap and ice once we were back in civilization. So now it's been a little over 24 hours and it reeeaaaaalllllly fucking hurts. And it's so swollen. And blue and purple.

Now ordinarily I'd wait it out 2-3 days, realize my ankle was improving, and not go see a doc. Umm yeh, there's no waiting this out - I have an appointment tomorrow with sports med doc.

Fuck. I'm terrified of the possibility of needing surgery. I've never had a good experience with anesthesia. I'm damn near impossible to numb, felt my goddamn fucking c-section, the dentist has to do intraosseous blocks and even that only lasts a few minutes, and when I had my wisdom teeth removed I woke up in the middle of the procedure. I have several family members with similar experiences with having difficulty being sedated during surgical procedures - we must metabolize this shit faster than the norm.

This fucking sucks. I start a new position in less than a month. And it's right before Christmas. How the fuck am I gonna work overtime if I can't fucking work? I can't get patients out of bed or even fucking turn them in this condition. Fuck fuck fuck.

I wore boots instead of trail shoes because it was muddy. I shoulda worn the goddamn trail shoes. And I need better boots - I fucking knew better. They weren't lace up boots. I didn't get to see the sludge field, and I didn't get to see the natural rock bridge that we were supposed to go see later that night, nor an old abandoned building that was also on the list.

I've done a 15 mile obstacle course on crazy terrain and other mud runs in the rain that required me to sign a death waiver and never fucking hurt myself. Stupid root.

nope. Weeping

It's ok though, I was able to reach it with the assistance of an empty coke bottle, a pencil and some tape.

That's awful--and what terrible timing. I hope your ligaments are okay and you don't have to have surgery. Hug
