Congratulations! — Uh, What??

My doctor called to say, “Congratulations!  You’re the proud owner of a broken foot!”  On one hand I’m glad because I don’t feel like such a wimp for babying it and limping.

On the other hand the recovery is harder and it’s challenging to use crutches because my foot doesn’t hurt unless I put it flat on the ground.  So basically the crutches are more preventative than essential.

I’m hoping to get sympathy from those who I need it from (aka Superman) but not a bunch from people who think it’s worse than it is.  ‘Cuz that’s just embarassing.
