Now before you get all excited.
It was just a trip to the grocery store.
I never want to do that again.
It was a horrible experience. Ha. Now I knew I was going to get some stares, and some comments, but nothing could have set me up for what I was going to get.
Two people stopped me to tell me stories about other people they knew in blue leg braces before I even got INTO the store. Really? Ugh. I just wanted to get in there and get out.
Three more stopped me, or made comments to me while I was in the store. One of the ladies nieces tore her ACL in December and is getting her MRI on wed. That's 9 months. There is NO way I am waiting 9 months for an MRI. After the MRI is when they determine surgery. Ugh. Really. I already knew all of this. I was just hoping that the timeframe would be me more within the next month and a half. Maybe the surgeon will take pity on me, and move up my OR date. IF I need to get surgery. I still don't even know if I need it. This is soooo frusterating.
I was slightly upset, and instead of having a nervous breakdown in the middle of the produce isle I texted my bff Mallorie. She really made me feel better. Reminding me that each case is different and THAT I need to wait and talk to the Ortho. I've remained pretty positive about this whole ordeal, simply for the fact that I have been feeling really well lately. I have been able to move around, I am not taking nearly as much medication.
No more field trips for me for a little while.
That one took alot out of me.
