I wrote this over a week ago, forgetting to post it. There may be a couple more of these "lost posts".
I should have used my crutches. I had them in my hands before I left for work this morning. But I figured I hadn't been out all day Monday and I'd used them during the weekend, so my foot should be rested enough. It wasn't hurting...
Except that ten yards from my front door I did start to feel the pain again.
Never mind, I'll hop on the bus and I'll walk slowly and carefully on the other end.
Eight days later, I'm still on crutches. These things heal slowly and painfully.
