What A Way To Begin The Week

Three a.m. this morning I woke up and had to go to the bathroom, something I have to do just about every night. I think that’s a sign of aging...sigh. I can do this little task practically in my sleep. This morning, however, I forgot about the furniture close to my bed and crashed into a bench, turning back my little toe. Yeah, it hurt like hell and I hobbled to the bathroom spewing obscenities as fast as they could exit my mouth. I stayed awake for about an hour, trying not to cry. When I woke up at seven I got up and ouch did my toe hurt. Then, of course, I remembered what I had done. My little toe is not so little now. It’s about twice the size as the other one and it’s solid blue. Lovely. I’ve had my foot propped up on a pillow and I’ve been in a Vicodin haze all day. That’s all. I’m about to fall asleep again.

Dammit, that's the WORST! I've had that happen, and I also recommend taping your toe. And don't wear shoes, and don't climb stairs. :D

I've got it taped, but I still have to hobble around on it while I'm at work. I'm worn out just from limping. Can't take any good pain meds while I'm working, so it hurts all the time. Yes, I'm feeling sorry for myself.

Dude, I did that exact thing two days before prom. Sucked eggs, big time. Didn't get to dance and back then I was all cute and thin and had a killer dress. Ahhh, the memories.

Hope you are healing quickly. Have you any arnica cream? It'll speed up the healing process. Pinky swear.
