Oh no that sucks!! At least you know that now rather than later though, so now you have less chance of having over-done everything. (Trying to find positives for you here!)

Your doing well though, keep behaving.. Is the "clunky boot thing" your referring to called an impact boot/moon boot? If so, I feel your pain, they're stupid heavy clunky things that don't go with any outfit either!

I've been sent to two different specialists for my hand/wrist/whatever else now, so I'm waiting on an MRI.

Wow, you really did a number on that! Well, now you know,& please take the time to let it heal properly. Sounds like you had a good surgeon & hope the healing progresses as fast as possible.

So, I figured I'd do another quick update for whatever reason, lol. Last week I got the OK from the PT to be able to do groundwork!!! Happy Dance (without using my ankle, lol).

Then today in PT, there was another interesting little discovery.... :/ I don't feel pain like "normal" people. My tolerance is extremely high I guess. So if I say I'm at a 5 on the pain scale (1 = none, 10 = max)I guess it means that most people would say it's way more than 10. How they can tell that, I don't know. And I feel pain differently. Apparently, if I'm feeling sick or "off" for no reason that's when most people would be hitting the good stuff & ice packs, lol.

We found this out today when I almost passed out as the PT was stretching the tendons. They've been feeling REALLY tight, and I'm paranoid I'm going to rip something so they were working on them. Didn't hurt at all! Actually felt pretty good, all of the sudden, flop, down I go. After she did a few things, asked a few ?'s talked to my back Dr who just happened to be around. And that's what they came up with. So who knows what this will all mean....

Honestly doesn't bother me any, just makes it easier for me to keep doing things. Which the older, wiser, less listened to part of me knows is a BAD thing, lol. But hey, if ain't broke, don't fix it? Right? Hahaha

Dear GH
I see you are on this right right at this moment, and I would like for you to remember your own advice as you are healing.

Glad that things are progressing albeit slowly. At least you can get outside now!! I messed up my shoulder muscle, and of course it couldn't be while leading a horse, or even walking my dog, no it happened from stirring melting chocolate. So the back of my shoulder, right around the bottom of my shoulder blade is swollen, and it hurts to move my arm all but the smallest amount, so I'm one armed today, and even moving that arm makes the other arm ache. It's so embarrassing to be like "I train horses, work with some pretty rank ones others don't want to touch, and yet I hurt myself trying to melt chocolate." Jeeze. Horses are definitely much safer lol. Hope that you continue to heal well, and keep the pain under control!
