Things I would rather not put in my shoes:
* More shoes
* The digestive system of a ferret
* Someone else's feet
* Anything my cats throw up
* Poison Ivy
* Pine cones
* Bacon (It is evil to waste perfectly good bacon)
* The DNA of Justin Bieber
* Motor oil
* Light bulbs
* Replica of the Eiffel Tower
Yes, another post about my feet.
You may remember from last week that I was diagnosed with Plantar Fasciitis, and had to have x-rays to determine if anything else was going on.
I got to see the x-rays this morning.
There's minimal bone damage, but the soft tissue damage is bad enough that I have to stay off my feet for awhile. I'll have to wear arch supports for the rest of my life, plus something called a "crest pad". It's basically a toe-straightener. The toes on my left foot have curled underneath so bad that I'm walking on my toenails and toe-knuckles. It hurts a lot. So I'll have devices to help fix that. It'll never fix it entirely, so I'll be wearing them forever. That's ok, I guess. As long as it takes the pain away.
I'm also supposed to roll a tennis ball around the bottom of my foot for 10 minutes, four times a day. Also supposed to roll a frozen bottle of water along the bottom of my foot, to help take down the inflammation.
Still using a cane to get around.
Still limping a lot of the time.
Still taking prescription Ibuprofen which is four times stronger than the over-the-counter stuff.
But hey, at least there's no superglue or ferret guts or Justin Bieber in my shoes, right?
