I'm a Broken Down Mess

It’s been a little over six weeks since I broke my foot... but it seems like f.o.r.e.v.e.r!    I don’t think I will ever take for granted my ability to just get up and do something whenever I want to. The moment my foot was life the way I had always known it... was temporarily over! 

The first week I wasn't even smart enough to realize that it was broken... I thought I was just being my usual wimpy self... But the pain was too much for this baby to endure. 

A week after I first hurt it, I realized that there was definitely something going on there that wasn't right.  After finding out it was broken, I was kinda relieved. I’m serious! I finally knew that I had a reason to cry all the time! 

Looking back, I suppose cramming my horribly bruised and swollen foot into a shoe that felt 4 sizes too small probably wasn’t the most brilliant thing to do!  

After seeing the specialist and being assured I would heal without any type of surgery, I could finally breath again.  

Every day I pray that my foot continues to heal and that I don’t do anything stupid to cause any sort of setback! 

I’m looking forward to the day when I can finally start doing my morning run again. I’ve missed that soooo much!! 

Soon.... very soon.... I will be able to make my morning RUN to the quick-stop & grab a 32 oz. Coke to start my morning off the way it should!


  1. I hope your back to that morning run soon too. :)

  2. Aw ... I feel for you. I broke my toe once and it took a very long time to feel good again. Six weeks is not very long for your foot to heal cause you're walking on it all the time :) Be patient with yourself ... you'll get there .... really.

  3. Oh, I can't believe you're still struggling. When I fell down on Mothers' Day, it wasn't until JULY that I went to make sure something wasn't torn . . . then it took almost a year to not feel pain anymore . . . that may not help but I'm sharing it to say time does heal . . . . keep hanging in there . . . enJOY the pampering that your husband is probably giving you . . . he IS pampering you since he wouldn't park where you wanted him to park?! . . . anyway, sending positive energy your way!

  5. Ouch!!! We teachers, we're tough. We can walk on a broken foot for a week, teach through a migraine...wait, maybe we are just too busy to stop and pay attention!

    Hope your up and about again soon!

  6. We rely on walking to accomplish so many of our tasks. Best wishes in healing.
