The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS July 6/19 How I got from Jimmy Choo to Can’t Chew and all points in-between

This week LindaGHill said :”Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “chew/choo.” Use one or both, any way you’d like. Have fun!”

Well it’s not been a good week. I have been struggling with a painful ankle and swollen foot for several months now..

I have seen the doctor twice and she has no idea what the problem is. So far she had recommended firstly physio and secondly a podiatrist. Both have long ,LONG, waiting list so for now I hobble. No one has suggested an x-ray … probably too expensive for the likes of me. Also there is probably a long wait too. Which means no point in buying a beautiful pair of Jimmy Choo.

That’s not the only problem I have had this week, no not at all I have not been able to chew properly. I have had nasty toothache which nesscessitated a visit to the dentist. Now I have a private dentist because it is very difficult to find an NHS dental practice who is taking new patients where I live. The upside of that is I got my appointment immediately and an x-ray. The upshot of the x-ray was three possible causes for the pain. I will not bore you with them. Just a thought perhaps I should of asked if they would x-ray my foot.

Recently I managed to get off the painkillers I was addicted to due to my back injuries so I cannot take any pain killers for my bad foot, bad tooth or even my bad back. I worried that I may start to get addicted to the over the counter pain killers too!
Anyway that’s how I got from Jimmy Choo to Can’t Chew and all points in-between. Oh!and there is one more link to the title the dentist is right by the station where you can catch the Choo Choo.

    I am sorry about your pain Willow. It is tough that you can’t take a pain killer but I am sure it is the right decision. Hugs

    Good for you for getting off the painkillers! I know that can be hard. Over the counter painkillers are generally less addictive, though if taken in large amounts over time, they can cause liver or stomach issues – so I’ve been told. I hope you can find some alternatives to help your body heal. yoga helps my back. (just found out I have “significant osteoporosis” in my spine.) I’ve also discovered that I can’t wear my croc sandals all the time like I have done for years because they don’t give me enough support – that’s what my left foot is telling me. So I have to wear supportive sneakers and dress shoes with LOTS of cushioning. No more heals for me. But I don’t miss them. Take care. I hope you feel better soon.

      Hi JoAnna, yes getting off the tablets was hard but worth it. Thank you for your kind words and I hope you are coping well with the osteoporosis hopefully you are on treatment for that. As for feet I think we all are all victims of damage done by fashion ❤ 🙂 🙂 🙂 keep well and happy.
