nope. I twisted up my foot a few months ago but I thought I just pulled a muscle. So I think I must have done a hairline fracture then and I must have done something just right to really mess it up now.

Don't give up so easily... You're going to need a broomstick for this, cut to a proper length so that you can operate the clutch with your left hand. Just Duct tape the broomstick to the clutch pedal, it'll work fine.
It's going to take a little practice, depressing the clutch with your left hand and shifting with your right hand but you'll have your left leg to steer with since you won't be using it for the clutch.
You still have enough good "limbs" to operate the car, you just need to adjust your driving style a little...


Speedy recovery!

Rev match, shift without the clutch and don't stop on any hills?

Get well soon, broken bones suck. I busted my leg in 3 places about 15 yrs ago and that was terribad. I dunno maybe get some sympathy points from the GF/Wife? Or BF if that's how you swing haha.
