it has been 2 weeks since i injured my left third toe. i still have trouble with wearing my shoe. but that's not the only thing. on the monday after i injured that toe, i injured my right third toe! how? by hitting it on a low to the floor, wheeled, plant stand that was placed there so we wouldn't run into the brick from the fireplace. i was wearing my flops when i did it this time as i was getting my grandson from playing with my plants. it didn't swell like the other toe did but it hurt nonetheless. a few yrs back, about 2007, i dropped a 14 lb bowling ball on my right foot. thank God for sturdy bowling shoes. but it still caused my foot to swell and injured the first three toes with the big toe taking the brunt of it. so u can see that my feet r not all that immune from injury. it's a joke here at the house now. but, oh well! nothing i can do about that except protect my toes and feet better by watching where i am goin' and NOT dropping bowling balls on them. hehehehehehe..... 8}

today i am laid up in bed due to a foot injury that happened last nite. as i was walking behind my daughter, i slammed my 3rd toe of my left foot into the green chest that sticks out a bit from the wall just passed the bookcase closest to the bathroom. and let me tell u this: IT WAS PAINFUL! my hubby and daughter kept asking if i was ok. i was fine except for the pain. since i had socks on, i didn't look at it. it was throbbing so hard i could hear it in my head and i had to keep myself from passing out. now i'm no wimp when it comes to pain but this kind of pain can only be compared to childbirthing. of course, i didn't put ice on it. i just went about my normal stuff and kept walking around the house thinking i could just "ignore" it. yes, i could feel the swelling happening but i still didn't put ice on it nor did i look at it. after sleeping, i walked on it but noticed that the whole front part of my foot, the toes and ball of my left foot really hurt. the throbbing continued in my injured toe but not until about 10a did i examine my left foot. looking at the 3rd toe i saw that it was more black than blue. i put my sock back on and started my day. but when i showed my daughter, she said it looks like u may have broken it. yes, i have insurance but i won't go to the doc because money is tight and i really don't want to hear that "all" the money was spent on me. went thru that a while back and i don't want to go thru it again. so i am taking my kid's advise and staying off my feet and resting. will check on the toe again to see if the swelling has stabilized or started goin' down. so until i can walk, on my left foot, i'm stuck! what a bummer. oh well, i'll just catch up on my game playin' and stuff.
