Last time I fell off my heels, I was on crutches for months. Go get it xrayed if it's really bad!

Congrats on 100 posts!

That sounds awful, Douzer. I fell down some steps many years ago and it was so embarrassing. I didn't even have high heels to blame it on. The worst part was the ugly purple color it turned - it seemed to stay that way for weeks. (Is yours swollen and purple yet?) Anyway, I'm pretty sure lots of alcohol is standard medical treatment for this sort of injury so you're on the right track!

Bad for you Douzer. Oh, Good for you Douzer.
Put the cocktail ice on it.
I gave up on the heels when I moved down here, except for weddings and such. I figure; God made me close to the ground for a reason (5'3), I'd better listen.

Oh, I agree completely Douzer. I think you should avoid any type of housework or cooking for at least a few weeks. You've got to think of your health!

Well, I avoid high heels (in an upright position) because I'm ~5'9" and it's a long way to fall!
