My toe, nine days after the incident
I have to say that the social impact of walking slowly with a cane is interesting. You become both visible and invisible in certain very specific ways. Combine this with my need to cover my face and all exposed skin when out of doors, and people are not reacting to me at all like I am accustomed to. It's also hard to be a flirt when you look like a disabled bank robber.
Mostly, though, this is still very annoying. Both the stupid clumsiness that caused the problem [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ] and the pain and inconvenience of living with the healing process. As I said before, definitely adding injury to insult.
