Hurt toe

I haven't blogged much recently for two reasons.
1. What's black and red all over? On Sunday I tripped over Special K and somehow badly bruised my second toe. It was black in the back for a while. Now it's purple in back and black in front and a bit swollen. C made me call the doctor yesterday who said that the bruising moving around is normal. I can move my toe. I don't try to walk on it but it hurts less a sprained ankle. However the level of pain isn't a good indicator for me since I have a high tolerance for pain.

2. I was feeling irritable and stressed out. It's hard to say if it's the drugs. Or the fact that C got sick again and at first didn't tell me. He says he's better now. We also had several serious discussions about Little T and Special K's education. And I found those also stressful and draining.

I've been jerking more which is irritating. I spilled two bottles of pills all over the place.

Then yesterday I started to feel more myself. I laughed several times.

My insurance approved 4 chiropractic visits. To a different chiropractor than the one I've been going to, but hey I'll give the other one a try.

Just because you can move it doesn't mean it's not broken. (Just ask my mom about her broken ankle that she walked on for a few days. Ugh.) Or it might not be. But then, since they won't do anything for it other than probably taping it to the one next to it to keep it from moving around too much and hurting more, it doesn't really matter whether it's broken or not. I've broken 6, maybe 7 toes (didn't bother to talk to the dr about the last couple), and well, they heal. If a spur starts growing out of it or something, you'll notice. ;)

Well it turns out it's broken and I need to see a podiatrist. Whee.

Lucky you! :P I only had to do that once, when the broken spot started growing a spur straight up out of the top of my toe. Funfun.

Ouchie!! Sorry about your toe.

I'm glad you're feeling well enough to laugh! That's improtant.

You're allowed to be irritable sometimes. Heck, with all you're going through, many people would be irritable all the time. It's amazing you can keep your sense of humor.

Thanks for your support. It really means a lot to be told I can be irritable sometimes.
