Ankle rehab continues and I can tell you now, that I am the worst patient ever. I am so thankful for everyone’s help and accommodations while I heal my bruised ego, pride and ankle – but having people fuss over me is something I am not accustomed to. It’s weird. It makes me squeamish. I’m supposed to be the one doing things for others, so when the tables are forcibly turned by an ankle that has a mind of it’s own, well… I don’t handle it well.

I think my coworkers are one step shy of strapping me to my desk chair so I won’t try and get my own copies off the printer or crutch it over to get my own ice packs out of the freezer.

I’m trying to take this as a humbling, character buiding experience… but the learning curve here is steep. And so is my stubbornness.
