Give up the lace up boots/ shoes and get high top hiking boots or military boots to walk in once/if the healing ever comes..lol They will support your ankles a lot better and give you training on where to keep your feet in line with your leg.
On the clumsy note, I have a story about my daughter since I am so sure footed...lol
She's 21 now, but when she was 10 and our youngest daughter amber was just getting good at walking she had a run in with the hallway gate. You know those contraptions we put up to keep the babies out of certain areas.. Well, Alicia was coming out of her room and went to step over the gate, tripped and fell knocking the gate down. She gets up, goes back to her room side of the gate, puts it back up and tries to go over it again and falls again. At this time I turn to see what is going on and see her putting it up again from her room side of the gate. She does it again!!! Lmbo I see her going back on her room side AGAIN an motion to the wife to come see. She does it again, but this time stops and looks at it and finally stays on the side she is wanting before putting it back up..We both look over and Amber is sitting there looking at her with this dazed and confused look....We laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes.
She had to figure it out on her own else the learning skills would have been lost.
I have a couple of hilarious moments she has provided us that would have you in tears from laughing.
Sorry to hear about the ankle and hope you enjoy the bubble wrap I'm sending in my thoughts...lol
