This is me right now in my new temporary life hobbling around with a fractured fibula from a freak roller skating accident. It’s day 4 and ya know it’s getting easier. I had great news from the orthopedic surgeon today and it looks like there’s no ligament damage and there’s no surgery necessary. I’m so relieved. I will be out of the boot in 3 weeks and almost like new in 6.
I only had one breakdown and overall been in good spirits. I am chronically clumsy (people who know me are shaking their heads yes now) and have a high threshold for pain (not necessarily something to be proud of). I made it to 44 years and never broke a bone until now (does a dislocated pinky finger that healed crooked count?).
This experience has made me feel incredibly grateful for the people who have been there for me, that I work from home and can rest easier and that it wasn’t as bad as it could’ve been. I’m also learning patience, doing more self care and slowing down. I was working late nights and had a couple of all-nighters prior to this getting my online shop ready. I felt a bit rushed and things seemed a bit chaotic. Looks like this happened for a reason and I’m totally ok with it.
