Just had to document it....I'm walking. It's been about 6 weeks since I broke my ankle. Just baby steps, but it's something! I tried for the 1st time two days ago (29th), after some encouraging words from a neighbor who is a massage therapist. She gave me some good advice, (after receiving not much from my doctor who pretty much just said "try to start walking" after my last visit). I was kind of fearful, because everytime I would put my weight on it I would feel this tingling, kind of like when your foot falls asleep, and I just was very unsure about putting my full weight on it. Well, I held on to hubby's hands and walked across the living room. Then, down the hall and back. Now, I'm up and gradually walking more and more. My ankle gets tired after a bit and still swells up after too long on it, but it's a start. Baby steps.....I'm really excited and motivated to keep going. You really take your health for granted when you have it. I will really appreciate walking so much more now.
