Many of you know I have a bum foot. I've been wearing a super sexy walking boot for the past couple weeks and I've got a good 2-3 weeks more. I have Plantar Fascists, not at all to be confused with Plantar warts, which btw, every time someone asks me what's wrong with my foot and I say plantar fascists, I cringe a little inside thinking that they're going to think my foot is so badly covered in warts that I'm wearing a walking cast. My feet are wart free thankyouverymuch.
So today I get another cortisone shot in my heel. I'm not so freaked out about the shot as I am dreading the next 3 or so days. I've had a shot before and while it hurt like a motherfucker, it wasn't like white searing pain like I had been told it would be. After the shot it literally feels like someone took a baseball bat to your heel and that pain lasts for about 3 days before it starts to feel like normal pain again. Then at about the two week mark, it starts to feel better and if all the stars align, in a month or so I may just feel like I have a normal foot again! Meaning, I can walk without pain and stop walking on the toes of my right foot. The upside to this-I have really strong calf muscles on my right side.
I can't even tell you how much you take foot health for granted. It's on my mind all the time and by all the time, I mean ALL the time. Even at night, sometimes I'll bend my leg and put my foot on the bed to roll over and even that causes pain. It's horrid and it prevents me from trying shit like Zumba. At this point, I'm mad that it's preventing me from doing even the things I don't like-like snowboarding. I know...not the season, but still when friends talk about going on snowboarding and snowshoeing trips I get pissed off that I can't go with them and hate everysecond of that experience.
So, today is shot day, and tomorrow will be baseball bat day and then hopefully in a few months it will be I hate snowboarding and why did I get talked into going day!
I hope all my dreams come true and one day I can go camping and hike all day! Ahh hahahahahahahahahahahaha. Me, camping and hiking all day? NEXT!
