okay so I'm new to this discussion. I have repeatedly injured my left ankle. nothing was ever done with it and it's left me with chronic pain. I'm frustrated because nobody really cares if you are in pain or not or at least that's my experience. if I could cut off my foot and it would make the pain stop, I gladly would in a heart beat. Yesterday was so bad, I broke down crying. that's rare for me. sorry this post is so scattered but my brain just wants to get it out.
