Seven weeks ago, The Husband and I were out salsa dancing at a club with some friends of ours. We were dancing a three-person salsa, and the other girl accidently stood on the side of my ankle, you know, just down the side of the sticky-out ankle bone on the side. Since then, my ankle has been bruised and swollen. Yup, seven weeks of painful bruising and swelling! I am kinda stubborn and I don't especially like a visit to the doctor, but I eventually went last week - just to make sure it wasn't fractured, or that I hadn't chipped any bone off. It's not (broken), and I haven't (chipped any bone off). Apparently I have "severe soft tissue damage." Not cool!
