It's been a week, that's for sure. I'm a little embarrassed to have dragged you guys through it, too, but I'm SO THANKFUL you guys were around. Thanks, really. All of you.
So I went in to the doctor, laid down the law about stupid videos, and made him talk to me like I had a brain between my ears. He was cooler. I got to see the Xrays, and he showed me all about where the bones are misaligned. I still can't rattle off what's wrong with my foot (mostly because I don't remember the names of all those little bones), but at least I have a picture in my head and know what's wrong.
And he did fix stuff.
Constant pain on the side of my foot is gone. Shooting pains when I pull my toes up in the direction of my shin are gone. I even could get up on tiptoe, although he only allowed me once to check it, so we wouldn't undo his corrections.
He's going to fix things, but our main issue now is that he says unless I wear shoes with orthotics 24/7, I'm going to fall into little pieces.
First, I LOVE, love, LOVE the feel of my feet rooted into the ground when doing TKD and yoga. It's pretty much a spiritual connection to the Earth for me. Second, I'm not yet willing to accept that jail sentence without a second opinion.
So we'll see.
I'm a little overwhelmed with stuff to do and stuff to write. I really should take a couple weeks and be Ms. Focused Machine.
I'm addicted. I highly doubt I can stay away a day, let alone two weeks. If I happen to disappear, you know why. I have like 50,000 words to write in the next two weeks, plus get my students all orientated and lesson-planned and organized for the year. And get their websites up and everything else.
But hopefully I'll end up online anyway.
I mean, a regular schedule is coming up. I can't wait! You?
