I've not been having a great week, bodywise.

Yesterday, my foot felt like the ankle wanted to crack, but was mostly OK. Then last night, it started to hurt a bit more so I tightened up the support on my boots.

And this morning, I woke up to MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF PAIN. I can't really stand on it. I can't put much weight on it at all. I've taken some ketoprofin and put kwan loong oil on it and tied the ankle up in a towel; betwixt the three, I hope that soon I'll feel better enough to go hie myself over to the drugstore and get a compression bandage so I can do any of the four zillion things I was gonna do today.

(A brief rhapsodic aside about ketoprofin: it's the analgesic of the gods.

In the US, the only brand I've seen is Orudis KT. Spendy, but worth it.)
