Today, while going to get some coffee, I tripped and turned my ankle pretty bad. I was wearing nice platform shoes - only an inch off the ground - so not really very high and very stable. But I was crossing against the light and a car was coming so I sped up and came down wrong and hard on the side of my foot.
I hobbled into the coffee shop and got some ice on it right away. I walked back to work and put my foot up with the ice but knew after about 1/2 hour that I needed to get home.
So I came home and have elevated my foot, rotating ice packs on the ankle and am watching the soaps. I have also been taking mega doses of ibuprofen.
