So... we all know I suck at intros. So let's skip this part and get right to the point, shall we?
I have an ankle brace now. The chronic pain in my ankles had gotten to a point where I had started researching ways to reduce the pain. The cheapest and best-seeming option appeared to be an ankle brace. So I did more research. When you have an uncommon disability, you get used to researching a lot. I found one that would seem to work well for me. I talked to my parents, and they ordered it for me. It just came today.
I haven't even used it for a full 24 hours yet, and I can already tell that it will change my life. I can feel the increase in stability in my foot and an ankle, and my pain has been seriously reduced by a lot. Walking and even running are so much easier now!
There are a few downsides, however. My sneakers fit over the brace, however my sandals don't. Also, since my brace is black, it's not exactly like people won't notice it. And since it is a physical sign of my disability, a lot more people will ask about my disability, but I'll probably write a separate article about that.
This is going to be a big transition for me, so I'll try to write updates when I can.
