Urghh. Grnnnk. And other onomatapeic noises as a macho male reveals that he does indeed have less tolerance of pain than the average woman.
All I've done is go over on my ankle. It's swollen to about twice its size, but that's about it. Ice and rest proscribed by the doctor (although the doctor isn't a medic, and is the idiot who's just gone over on his ankle).
Still. Gruurgh. You'd think I'd learn not to try going downstairs as fast as I go up.
