Playing dodgeball tonight, I got injured.
The woman who HATES any physical pain. HATES physical pain.
I threw a ball at someone (it didn’t hit them…) and I was running backward (a strategy as super- duper dodgeballers do) and I stepped on a ball and rolled my foot.
And then preceded to fall on top of my rolled foot before entirely hitting the ground.
It hurt. A lot.
It seriously was so painful I wanted to cry. Previously at this point in my life, when I’ve played sports, I would automatically sit out. (I would be secretly relieved and be happy to watch).
But I really wanted to stay in, and so I decided played through the pain.
The woman who HATES physical pain.
I must say, I am proud of myself. I stayed in and put my best foot forward (literally). I actually almost made a half-court shot.
I am home now R.I.C.Eing my foot. (I may or may not have had to call my father to tell me what the acronym was…)
So, here I am with a Tahn snuggling on my lap (she is healing me, she’s a healer), Resting, Elevating, and Icing my foot. (Ok, I am not taking Ibuprofen. I’m drinking red wine and eating 2 brownies instead).
Here’s to changing for the better!! (Even if my foot is purple and swollen).
