    It Really Sucks..

    I've sprained my ankles multiple times over the years, and my right one has always been rather weak. Well, I recently sprained my right one a couple weeks ago, and it's barely gotten any better. Ever since the swelling's gone down I'm able to move it better, but I still have...

    When My Ankle Was Sprained

    I tripped. That's it. I honestly wish I could tell you something more riveting, but I just tripped. I was walking on the curb coming home from school and I tripped. I was eleven at the time, and the school bus dropped my off half a mile away from my home. I had a quarter mile to...

    I was walking down the stairs

    after class the other day so I could leave the building and I stepped wrong on one of the very last steps. Fortunately I didn't fall to the ground, but I did twist my right ankle. Of course I had to walk ten minutes in the rain to get back to my dorm, but that's just my luck. I...

    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!

    It Still Bothers The Heck Out Of Me.

    I sprained my ankle a few years ago, during the summer of 2007. I've always had weak ankles and occasionally rolled my ankles, but that time was the worst. I'd been running down the stairs, and jumped the last steps down, (around 2 ft). I landed on the side of my foot, and...
