I am super clumsy. So clumsy, in fact that I have broken my feet. That’s right. I didn’t break just one foot, I broke both of them– at different times.
The first time was when I fell into a koi pond.
(Yes, they go after you like you’re fish food when you first fall in, but if you flail about enough, they will go away. Pro tip.)
And the second time was when I tripped over the edge of one of those carpet protector chair mat thingies and pulled a computer over onto the top of my foot. (I’d try to explain it, but it’s so awkward, we are better off with me just saying it wasn’t a move any ballerina would make.)
What did this mean for me? It means that I basically had permanent cankles. These two breaks in my feet basically caused permanent inflammation and swelling in my ankles.
Swelling I could NOT get rid of. I tried prescriptions. I tried over the counter stuff. I tried compression socks. I tried drinking double my weight in water.
I tried everything, but I could NOT get rid of them. I was in boot cut jeans hell. (Even in the middle of summer.)
And that’s when a friend told me that she got rid of her swelling in her ankles with happy coffee. So, I figured it was worth a shot.
How Happy Coffee Helped Me Get Rid of My Cankles
I started drinking happy coffee in the mornings, and before I knew it, the swelling in my ankles was gone. Now, not only can I wear skinny jeans, but the swelling is down so much I can even tuck them into cute boots, too. 🙂
