I'm not basically stuck as home without a left foot to use and had to cancel my BBQ and Boating plans for 2mr, as well as the next few weeks without gym exercise. Angry Angry Angry. But hey, at least it's not the worst thing that could've happened to me. Frustrated though, gaah.
Make sure when the swelling is gone and you can walk on your foot again to go to physiotherapy. You will have to strengthen your ankle again because, after the first time, your ankle becomes weak and it is more likely to happen to you again. I was on crutches for a couple of weeks because of an ankle sprain, and since then i've gotten it on the same foot a couple more times.
