    I was just walking today minding my own business

    when I took a the wrong step and sprained my ankle. It bended inwards while walking. Did not hurt then. I'm in real pain now. I'm stuck with a swollen and very sensitive ankle. I'm so upset :(

    Three Months Ago

    I sprained my ankle three months ago and it's still a pain in the ***. I don't even think that I sprained it that badly, it just seems to take forever to heal properly. I've heard ankles take a while to heal, but I mean three months! Come on!
