My ankle hurts

I was walking up the steps of the subway today when I felt something give in my ankle. I had stepped down on it a little oddly, but nothing too unusual, but all of a sudden there was this intense pain. I tried to take another step. Ouch. I grabbed the railing and stood for awhile, no weight on my bad ankle. My first thought was that I wasn't going to be able to walk my 3 miles tonight. My second thought was "Am I going to be able to get home?"

I was.

I limped home and limped up the stairs. As long as I limp the ankle feels okay, not much pain. When I try to walk normally...well...that's a different story. If I lift up my leg I have full range of motion on it. Therefore I'm guessing it's a sprain rather than something more serious like a torn tendon or a fracture.

But it hurts.

And I should do laundry and get dinner tonight. But I'm not confident in my walking with a big bag of clothes.

Plus I have an interview tomorrow and I don't want to limp.

And this sucks.

I guess it's a sign that I need to lose weight. It wasn't needed/.
