    So my Achilles' tendon is injured,

    it hurts really bad whenever I walk. The possible cause of this is because I also have flat feet and it tends to stretch and pull more muscle. I was going to ice it but then realized that my ice maker is not working at the moment. Any alternatives?

    TIFU by rolling my ankle

    so badly that my other wardrobe team crew members are insisting they take over for me today because I can barely stand. I feel terrible that they have to cover for me. To me physical pain is just a mental roadblock to be overcome, so I feel weak that I can't blow it off. :( Oh...

    I was a wild dancer that loved to do powermoves.

    I am a member of a Breakers Crew. However I consider myself an ex dancer. Years ago I wanted to continue practicing powermoves, and become pretty amazing. However I pushed myself a little too hard. I did too much exercise, worked out a lot, and I practice powermoves in dancing...
