Mary Go Round

The more time passes, the more I appreciate the title of my blog. I'm giving myself a big ole pat on the back right now. To me, the title means that I just keep going around and around in the same circle. First the good news, then we'll discuss my centripetal force. The infection is dead and gone. No issues with that. I have passed my latest doctor's appointments with flying colors. I can walk to and from class. I can even take a walk on a nice day. But here's the problem. I'm STILL having instability. It started one evening when I had been sitting for awhile and then stood up. Yep, that's all it took to send me into a panic. And the official diagnosis? "Functional instability". Meaning, it feels broken, but it's not really. See also; every blog post I've written prior to this August. Because that's the diagnosis I kept getting when I mentioned the instability before. And Dr. McGorgeous was wrong on that one. It was ACTUALLY unstable. And he tightened a ligament. So, I totally respect him. And I would defend him to the death since he hasn't given up on me yet. But, I apparently have trust issues. So I don't know how to believe him now that there isn't actually something else wrong. In the meantime, the best things for me to do are to start training my ankle how to move correctly again. So, physical therapy, massage therapy, yoga. Back on the merry go round.....
