I can’t believe this! I stubbed my toe (HARD) on a little desk at school last night before my late class. I was wearing toe socks (for the babies) and caught the desk leg in-between my toes. It quickly swelled up and turned purple. I knew I had to get it checked, but I still felt bad going to ER with the possibility that it was just painful but not fractured. Everyone at ER kept saying “not to worry, it’s not broken,” so they kept me waiting for hours (four to be precise). When the x- ray tech came back he asked me if I thought about investing in steel- toed shoes for work. Clear as day I had a full break with a nice diagonal and a big gap between the bones of my toe. If you, like the doctor, are wondering, which toe, just look. I’ve gotten a ‘lot of “Which – OH!, that one!” The doctor did that, too.  They can’t do anything more for me than pain killers and a soft cast, which I think sucks, but the doctor said I should be happy, it’ll heal straight this way. All I know is it hurts!

Still jealous of my fancy pedicure?

The line is where the break is and its direction.

I’ve never broken anything before. This sucks!
