Please let me wake up pain free tomorrow!!!

OK, something y'all should know about Julz... She never gets hurt!  I really don't get hurt easily and I'm the fastest healer ever!  However, yours truly is currently laying on her bed with her right foot elevated and an ice pack over the ball of her foot.  


Something feels SO seriously wrong with the region under my big toe right now and it's so scary because I've never had anything like this before!  The pain is downright terrifying me and I hate that I am in this state.  It's so uncomfortable.  I feel so out of control! I've never had to be on bed rest like this.  WTF?!  I don't know what it is, exactly, but it's the region under my big toe that is paining me so, and every time I put my heel down/the outside of my foot down, I feel the muscle under my big toe stretch and pull and it's overbearing.  What the hell is going on foot?!  Come on!  Pull through for me here!  My dad wanted to take me to the ER (he came home from work and though I thought I was walking perfectly normal/trying so hard to he goes, "what's wrong with you Julz? Waaaaiiiittt come back here, why are you limping like that let me see your foot").  He came home from being on business (all week long! It's awful!).  I show him my foot and it's SO red and swollen.  It scared me! And right when I put it up to show him my muscle under my big toe felt like it was ripping my joint in half.  GUYS HELP ME!!! I don't ever get injured! Aaaand I don't understand this because I was walking a TON today and constantly running around doing errands and it felt fine!  It started to urk me a bit when I got home, but Jim and I played tennis around 6 for 45 minutes or so (nothing too long though!) and I was bouncing around just fine.  I felt the irritation, but I didn't pay it much mind.  Hotlinkable Free Smiley Face from Free Smileys I'm nerrrvous now though! And I really don't want to go to the pediatrist! PLEASE LET ME WAKE UP TOMORROW AND BE PAIN FREE! Does anyone know what's going on with my footsie?!

Buddha Update:  My little man is doing MUCH better!  Thanks SO much for all of your sweet, sweet wishes and prayers!  You guys are so wonderful, I can't even tell you.  Every single one of those comments touched me so, and I'm so lucky to have you guys! ThaaanksssHotlinkable Free Smiley Face from Free Smileys!!! My boozy tested positive for Lyme, and they gave him medication/pain killers and they've made SUCH a big difference for him.  It's so hard for us to keep him from bouncing around like the Tigger that he is, but it's so important.  He could pull a muscle so easily right now, so we have to be careful!

Blog Update: My project for tonight/tomorrow is to get all of my pictures up and loaded! Ohhhh and (PS) I baked Banana Bread tonight because we had 6 small/medium bananas that were SUPER ripe! My dad bought a bag of 15 organics for a dollar (!!!) at the produce junction right by us LAST WEEK.  I know I know, ridiculous!  Anyways, Each loaf has 3 bananas and they were super ripe/sweet so the sugar was kept to a MINIMUM.  I put in a little maple syrup, vanilla, almond, and coconut extracts, cinnamon, whole wheat pastry flour, redieggs, almond milk, baking soda and I think that's it! OMG and a half of a container (I don't know the serving... It's the 80 calorie portion?) of Fage 0% went into each loaf too! Y.U.M.!! I actually have yet to try one but am SO excited to!!!  My house smells of warm banana goodness!  I have to be careful though, because bananas + my digestive system= Party over.  Unfortunately Hotlinkable Free Smiley Face from Free Smileys!  (-PS- I don't keep passover past the first few days... Whoops! Hotlinkable Free Smiley Face from Free Smileys).

Anyways, I'm going to chill out for a bit and try and get my mind off of my foot (blogging's helped though! Hotlinkable Free Smiley Face from Free Smileys All thanks to you guys, I'm sure!).  I'm watching the new Real World Hollywood and it's SO intense! Gosh I love this stuff.  I mean who even says something like, "watch where your sleepin tonight hoe!"  BAHAHA! So awesome... Except for the fact that the stupid girl from the South is ignorant and keeps saying, "Let's not get ghetto!" and then, "I don't care if you're from the most inner-city Blackville!".  It's people like her that give Southerners a bad name.  My cousins live in the South and they don't act like this girl!  Ugh gross!  Anyways, I hope everyone's Friday nights are eventful, fun, and S.A.F.E.! I'll be here, on my bed, watching reality tv and trying to think of anything but my foot!

good luck w/ the foot! i'll be thinking of ya ;)

glad to hear your bud is getting the right meds for his lyme's disease... that is crazy but at least you know he will be better before you know it :)

mike said...

hej. stumbled across your blog. hope the pain passes and your foot heals quick. I agree: passover is too easy to forget when there are over-ripes in the cupboard. I like your adding maple syrup

that sounds awful and frustrating... i battled with knots in my lower leg muscles for a good 2-3 weeks of marathon training and I know how it feels when you want to run but really CAN'T

maybe ice? i'd watch the ibuprofen because sometimes the swelling and fluid can speed the healing process and if you take anti-inflammatories they stop that natural process... just something I learned from the trainers.

Eep! I hope your foot gets better soon!

Thanks for the sweet wishes everyone! I have an MRI today so we'll see how it goes... Right now the ER doctors told me they think it's a stress fracture(s)/tendonitis/other "itis"'s... I hope it's NOTHING and I'm dreaming. I'm on crutches (/am attempting to not look like a FOOL while I trip over my crutches) and have a boot (very stylish) and am trying to keep myself happy and from going insane from no endorphins/not being able to even go to WF by myself! This is craaazy. I've NEVER had an injury what did you guys do when you got hurt?!?!

Ahhh, Fage! I just bought a big (crazy expensive) tub :)

You foot sounds scary! Take care of yourself and feel better soon?

I'm glad the pup is doing well.
