Broken leg and ankle was created by kai
Not having a good time of things lately. Woke up this morning with very sore knee and ankle and unable walk. I must have done it when sleepwalking (I do it when I get stressed) I did not even wake up when I did it. Rather embarrassing having to say at the hospital I did not know what I had done. I assume I twisted my ankle which transferred up the leg and broke the top of the fibular.
So leg in a cast and on crutches again, the third time in just over 12 months.

It's hard to know what to say! I hope you get better soon and stay in bed when you're asleep, for goodness sake!

The only thing I ever did when sleep walking was steal all my family's money from a motel unit and leave it out on the office doorstep and some years later, squeeze a non-existent pimple on my forehead, leaving a large sore spot. There was the small matter of walking around a house in my no-pyjamas, but I presume I was not observed.

Damn ....:-(
If not already done, urgently communicate with your diabetes specialist. Injuries usually need more insulin, especially if they involve limited movement.

Oh no. I hope that you are OK, and that it heals well.
I hope you can deal with whatever is stressing you too.

Not really, I am just waiting on a phone call in the next few days saying my Dad has finally passed away.

oh Kai.. I am sorry to hear about your troubles.. goodness what a weird thing to happen.. I too sleep walk .. most I come up with is a strange collection of bruises that I have no idea about.. at the moment I am sporting 2 x completely black knees ( and not just the knee caps.. all over .. so didn't just fall on my knees.. the sides are black too ).. and one black ankle..
hearing about you .. I am glad its just bruising.. sounds like whatever I did could have been worse..
take care

Gosh Kia, that all sounds very stressful without breaking something. I'm hoping you have enough support around you to get through this easier.

so sorry to hear of your troubles, Kai. sending good vibes your way.

if you take Homeopathy every now and again; now would be the time for Symph off. it helps knit the bones.

and you'd better look into some help for that stress, too - never considered that sleepwalking can be so accident fraught.

Sorry to hear about your Dad. It is very hard being far away at these times.

Sorry to hear about your Dad and also the leg. If this is the third break in a year I think I'd be getting an opinion on why the bones are so brittle. It takes a lot to break healthy bone and the fibula is quite protected from normal knocks and falls. Sorry to add another stressful thought but if there is a problem life could get a lot easier for you.
