I just want to write a diary because I'm pissed.

I fucking broke my ankle Thursday night in three places! Just typing it squicks me the fuck out. I've never broken a bone before so at 45, with a major break, you can believe I'm thrilled to death.

Went to ER that night. (Thank FSM for my insurance) and they've put a splint on me. I have to see an orthopedist tomorrow (the 11th). My flight leaves on the 18th. This will be fun. :/

I have a wheelchair here at dad's house. I think I might bring it. But I'm so pissed because I won't have much mobility at the conference and I'll mostly be stuck in a chair at my booth.

I've been so excited to meet you all and now I feel like I won't be able to have much fun while I'm there. I'm not sure how much pain I'll be in (especially if I have to have surgery before I leave) or how I'll feel and I'm really heartbroken.

I'm feeling good right now. I don't have any pain except when I lay down and fall asleep but I otherwise feel perfectly normal. My feeling hurt, though, whenever I have to "walk" somewhere. But I'm about over that, now.

I had everything all ready to go. I got a kickass banner for our booth and some made up some really cool handouts. Now I'm trying to imagine lugging all that stuff around and not being racked with pain.

I don't know why I wrote this diary. I guess I just needed to cry on your shoulders. My husband is being so wonderful in all this despite his own medical problems and physical limitations. I just need to get his off my chest.

Are you coming to NN13?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
