Stuff About Being Hurt...

Being hurt sucks.
And I’m hurt.
I’m not that hurt. But I’m hurt. I stepped out of bed about two and a half weeks ago and immediately experienced sharp pain posterior to the shin bone and about an inch above the ankle joint. Naturally, I ran anyway.
And it hurt.
So I ran the next day – that hurt too. Hardcore massage that night bought me two days of relatively limited pain....
