At this rate, you might just need to get new ankles, take your time healing and recover strong!

Ya, I mean, if someone wants to donate an ankle or two, that would be appreciated

every time you hurt your ankles it grows back twice as strong so evetually you'll just be able to run across rocks and not have to worry about falling at all :)

I'm really sorry to hear this. Were you wearing the Swede-O? Unfortunately, you may have inherited my sprain propensity. I have to disagree with AJ; in my experience every time it is re-injured the ligaments get looser leaving it more likely to happen again. I first rolled my left ankle after my only 30 seconds on a skateboard about 1980. Then I did it again and again - just like you have. By 1984, after several years of taping, I switched to a Swede-O, but found that wasn't good enough. I can't tell how many O races I finished with a swelling ankle. I have sprained it on a pebble during a road race, and more than once on a pavement edge. By the 90s I switched to an Active Ankle T2 and have never regretted it. For years now I have worn them on both feet for many miles of hiking, running, and orienteering - every time l put on running shoes. And they work, minimizing any roll that happens. So, I am going to order one for you to try.

And AJ, I really want to believe that you are right but I'm not so sure you are...

Swimming is great and aqua jogging! That’s the only way I got through my stress fracture! Hope you can get to a pool.

I sadly do not have access to a pool, so it's going to be biking and elliptical for me once it's a bit better.
