I have sprang my ankle before. I was jumping on my trampoline when I jumped wrong and sprang my ankle. This really hurt and was not pleasant for me at all! My ankle swelled up and I remembered I could not even put my shoe on. I had to go to the doctor and had to be on crutches. I hated being on crutches. I hope I never have to go through that again. I still have problems with that foot today. Everytime the weather changes my foot starts to hurt. I know this is cause by my injury from the sprang. I am alot more careful when I jump on my trampoline now!

Yes, I did. I just stepped wrong off of a curb and the entire thing went out. I could still walk on my own, but it did hurt. Thankfully it was only a minor sprain. After a couple of days of staying mostly off my feet and icing it, I was good to go. Still it was a painful experience and one that I do not wish to repeat any time soon.

I've done that and more. I've even broken it once. It's very painful and difficult to deal with, but I adjusted. It wasn't that hard, because I was lucky enough to break my right ankle. That leg is shi...t anyway. So it doesn't even matter what I do with it. It barely supports me, so meh to me its there for looks and nothing more. But, I understand what you go through. The same.... happens with me...

Hey tuckersheri! I always hated that every time it comes my way... What's worse is that it comes at unpredictable moments, and it keeps me from doing some off the things that I love doing like skateboarding... There was one time where I was skateboarding at an empty parking lot, I was practicing my ollies, (jumping in the air with the skateboard) and while I did that, I was in the air, someone screamed my name, I looked over, but I was still landing! I landed on my ankle to the floor, God, it hurt, I couldn't walk for a good 4 minutes, I found out that my brother's friend called me to say what's up. He asked if I was okay, and I was, though I should sue him :) But I had to ride on my skateboard back home. My ankle was soooo swollen... oh man, it's like it grew twice in size... anyways, moral of the story, never get distracted while skateboarding... I wish you happy holidays and a merry christmas! Happy mylotting.
