Flashback to a Broken Toe, Oh No!

I sometimes run around my house with bare feet, not always the smartest choice. For me anyway it would seem, yet I continue doing it. Maybe it’s fine for other people who don’t run into things randomly with their poor toes. Maybe you watch what you are doing, where you are going better than me? Maybe I am just sometimes in too much of a rush? Maybe other people are more mindful of these things… Well, In that case, you are safe! Today I just had a flashback to my broken toe of 3 years ago. What a really horrible thing that broken toe was, don’t let anyone tell you it doesn’t hurt either! They are clearly lying to make themselves sound brave is all I have to say on the matter. Anyway, the toe incident today was thankfully a bruised one and not a broken one, Yay! It sort of hurts of course, but I can deal with it!  After having that evil broken one, I know the difference now…I learned the hard way.

What a very strange post of it this is making, but I do feel so compelled to share. Well, don’t I always? I was innocently minding my own business, when the edge of a dresser got in the way of my big toe earlier today. 😉 Yeah, sure it did and who am I kidding? I was racing around and oops, slammed it a good one. It will be OK, but memories of that poor little baby toe that got broken came flooding back.

The smallest toe on my left foot it was, what pain and it hurt to walk normally for weeks. With any kind of shoes on and even bare feet…It was just awful. How did I break that one you may want to know? I should feel very stupid to tell that little story, but again I will share. It may save someone reading this from making my mistake. Farfetched as it may probably be, doubtfully this could only happen to me I have a feeling.

OK, I was moving a piece of exercise equipment that was kind of heavy and my hand slipped and I saw stars, seriously! Landing right on my poor little toe, just so and Owww! I am not prone to exaggeration, so believe me when I say…I wouldn’t wish a broken toe on anyone ever. Hopefully none of you kind readers has ever broken a toe, if you have please do share!

Three years ago at the ER and with x-rays it was declared quite the break. I got told, we’re so sorry but we really can’t do anything. Well, short of taping it, trying to give me pain meds and advising ice to reduce swelling and staying off the foot. Yeah, like that was going to happen! I tried, but it wasn’t 100% possible so instead… I hobbled, hopped around, looking like a strange sight. I must confess I am a bit stubborn and quite determined, so I will always get through. So today, it was just a scare and an awful flashback and from now on…I am being very careful with these toes of mine! Wonder if I should look into a pair of steel toed shoes to keep those toes safe? 😉

I know I have shouldn’t complain about a broken toe, even this bruised one. People have had a lot of worse broken bones I know, so do forgive my complaining. The only other break I ever had in my life was a little finger on my right hand. Not pleasant, but I was a teenager and the memory doesn’t seem too bad. Well, there you have a rather strange sharing on this post today!

Wonder if any of you kind readers are wanting to know if Autumn ever broke a toe or other bone? No, the Twinnie did not I am happy to report! Although between us both we sure have had enough other very unusual and some very bad mishaps and injuries. I will save that for another blog perhaps? Or I will spare you all, or perhaps not! 😉 🙂

  1. OMG Gabby that must have hurt real bad…i know so cos i have had this long affair with injuries….one day my father parked his bike and its stand landed on one of the fingers on my toe..and one of my toe fingers lost its nail permanently…i screamed so bad am sure the entire place knew something was wrong somewhere..and then one of my friends pushed me from 2nd floor and i came rolling down stairs like jack and ended up with several stitches on forehead..oh man the list is endless..
    i could feel your pain when i was reading the piece…
    be careful 🙂

    • It really did hurt Soma, I still do remember that pain. Oh no, you have a long affair with injuries, too…That sounds awful about your poor toe and you lost the nail forever. 😦 Well, you sure had the right to scream, I did with the broken toe incident I must admit. OMG and you fell down stairs, who would be so mean to give you that push?! Well, maybe the friend wasn’t thinking too clearly on how bad you could have gotten hurt. You better be careful, too Soma. I swear you are related to Autumn and me. Well, we are all soul sisters for sure and injury magnets, too it seems. I promise to be more careful myself, you better do the same and Autumn has also been more careful, too. Hopefully we will all be OK! 🙂 Hugs! 🙂

  2. I know, it was the total worst, that seeing stars and everything! It sure did hurt a lot, this bruised toe is nothing compared to the broken toe. OMG but I do feel like a real klutz Twinnie, I will be more careful from now on! 🙂 TF ❤

  3. Oh my, sorry to hear you hurt your toe Gabby, glad to hear you didnt break it. I have never broken anything. I must say I’m so thankful in that department! Nice picture of your hurt ft. you have them done in such a pretty purple color! 🙂

    • I’m happy I didn’t break it, too PJ because it was just plain awful having a broken toe. I am glad you never have broken any bones and thankful you haven’t and that deserves a Yay! 🙂 I think purple nail polish is fun and I do like to try out all the colors. 🙂

    • I’m so sorry to hear you broke a toe recently Judith :(, it really does hurt. Hope it’s healed by now for you! 🙂 Thanks for reassuring me it wasn’t a weird blog topic, too since I was concerned it was a bit strange…Not that this ever stops me! 😉 Thank you also for the kind thought about the bruised toe, it will be fine soon I am sure. 🙂

    • Glad you popped in today Tito, you are always welcome! 🙂 Thanks for sharing your injuries, broken bones and steel screws. That sounds like a whole lot of pain, I am sorry to hear you had to go through such things. 😦 Thanks for liking the nail color! 🙂
