Elephantiasis

So....some girls have blogs where they pose like super cute and they can be in super awkward positions and they still look FLAWLESS and they're laughing at the camera and their mermaid hair is flowing and the caption will say "just woke up!  decided to take some super unplanned pictures of me!  no make up! LOL!"
1. no one wakes up like that
2. if you want pictures like that (full of lies), this is not the blog for you

Because today I will be sharing with you the exact opposite of cute.  And by that I mean something so horrific you may have nightmares.
WARNING: THESE PHOTOS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR CHILDREN OR YOUR GRANDPARENTS OR ANYBODY ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH AND CERTAINLY NOT YOU JON HAMM BECAUSE IF YOU SEE THESE YOU WILL NEVER MARRY ME.

So *deep breath* here we go.
I was at work last Wednesday just minding my own business when all of a sudden, while just walking around, I twist my ankle.  And I think "ow that was kind of uncomfortable" and continued on my way.  Well let me tell you....it continued being uncomfortable and then it continued to swell.  And by swell I mean it grew to be the size of a six year old's head.
And from there I'd like to give you a timeline of "The Foot That Wouldn't Stop Growing"

Day 1  - can barely see my ankle!  SUPER CUTE LOLZ!

Day 2 - Super sexy ace bandage wrap!

Day 3 - After unwrapping the ace bandage.  Having no ankles is like....way in this year!
p.s. it's ok if you just threw up in your mouth.  I certainly did.  

Day 4 - umm...this got super weird

Finally after an entire week of rest, ice, compression, and elevation, my ankle is back to normal!  No more Elephantiasis.
There are 2 morals to this story
1. Be careful when you walk.
2. DON'T EVER GOOGLE ELEPHANTIASIS.
And seriously Jon Hamm....I told you not to keep reading this.

Oh nooo! That looks PAINFUL. However, its nice to know that I'm not the only seemingly accident-prone individual out there at the moment! Anything that can go wrong, does with me. I did get a good laugh out of this post so thanks!

I was really questioning why you named this elephantitis. I know what it is and was thinking wow. But your ankle could qualify. Good to hear you are back to normal and the upside... your toes were polished. :-)
