OH NOES!! Riff got an ouchie!!

Yep, I got injured. Bad. Here be the story.

So, I had to go into work at an unnervingly early hour for me last Friday, that being 7AM. As I'm getting off the expressway onto the main road, my bastard car dies on me. Fucking alternator decided to die on me in the middle of traffic. So I had to push. And push. And push. Then, I had to push some more until I got the damn thing legally parked on a side street. I haven't had that much exercise since weight training in my senior year!

Later in the day, I start getting a horrible pain in my left heel. It was honestly one of the worst pains I ever felt, like a bullet went through my Achilles tendon. Since I don't have medical insurance, I self-diagnosed that the pain was because of hyperextending the tendon as I was pushing the car. It just not gonna stop anytime soon. With no insurance, that meant I still had to work on the bad ankle, biting through the pain. Let me tell ya, I was in constant hell. All I could do was keep the foot elevated on ice at home, and play games while I lay prone.

Fast forward to today, and most of the pain has subsided. Stairs are still a challenge, but at least I can walk without looking like I took the shot bus to school. Plus now I can sit at my computer desk again all normal and start typing again. Got another day of work ahead for me, but tomorrow I get off, so I'll have a little something up to read then.
