Let's talk about pain ba-by, let's talk about you and me
Plantar Fasciitis. Ever heard of it? Think it sounds like some sort of wart foot fungus? Me too.
Let me describe to you what it feels like with some spontaneous poetry.
Can I get a beat?
Foot fucking pain
you're like a dead fish hidden somewhere under the crawl space of my house
day after day
How do I get rid of you?
Like a ninja, you creep up on me in the night
Only to reappear in the morning when I take my first steps and feel the equivalent of natural child birth located directly in my right heal.
Limping, limping, limping, limping.
I hate you
I loathe you
I've tried treating you tenderly
bringing you flowers
taking you out to fancy dinners
but nothing, nothing seems to make you stop causing me pain
I'm not sure if you know this, dearest heal fucking pain
but I'm not into abusive relationships anymore
Sure I've had a few, but those days are over now
and you need to move on.
I need to move on
Let's not get counseling
let's not try to work this out
Let's just cut our losses and move onward.
Do you like it?
Seriously though, does anyone have this? Does anyone know the agony? Here's what I've tried
Waling cast boot
stretching a lot
icing with a legit wall-greens icing velcro thing
Still... every day I feel like I just got beat in the heal with a baseball bat. I know I can be a pain wimp and I know I can exaggerate, but this is not one of those times.
I do like to complain though, so this is why I'm telling you. A friend had this and it took him 18 months of intense stretching and icing to get rid of it. His advice "stretch the fuck out of it, then ice the fuck out of it every day." I like him cause he drops the F bomb almost as much as me.
My doctor had it too and it took him 18 months as well! He iced it and stretched it too, but he didn't say the F word.
