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! 😉 🙂
