Just came back to work. Got MC two days. The doctor said I sprained my Archilles tendon. All I can think of is Brad Pitt. Hehehe.
Anyway, now I do have some respect to Archilles. If he really suffered injury to the tendon, might as well die instead of being maimed and fell the pain all his life.
When you suffered sprained in the Archilles tendon, the best thing to do is to rest it. Don't massage or put cold presses to it. My experience is when you massage or put cold presses to it, it hurts damned more. Just apply some hot oil/lotion, such as Perskindol and rest it on a pillow.
After 2 days of rest, I can walk a bit more humanlike. Only stairs is a bit of a challenge to tackle.
Reading Dean Koontz - Shadowfires. Scaryyyyy.

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
