    Woe is Me Update

    Let me begin by saying, I have never had a broken bone, or any kind of invasive surgery, nor had stitches, except for when my daughter was born. I also have a very high tolerance to pain, because I live with it every day. I had my first stitch when they did the first punch biopsy for the rash, on my abdomen. Now I have 2 more where they did the 2 biopsies yesterday on my wrist. My wrist is in severe pain due to the holes in it.
    Now on the the podiatrist. Exactly what I thought would happen, did. The toe nail on my right big toe had to be removed. Holy hell!!!! The shots to numb it, just about had me in tears, and I could still feel some of what he was doing. So now my toe is in agony and I am having a very hard time walking. I could get crutches if not for my left wrist that I cannot put any pressure on. My house is small, and my bathroom is only about 20 ft. from my living room, where I am layed up of the sofa. It takes me between 2-3 minutes just to get there. I have never been in this position of feeling totally helpless, and dependant on someone else to do even the smallest things for me. And I must say I do not like it one bit. I can't sew, and have nothing done that I could do handwork on. Can ya tell I am not a happy camper at the time being? Guess I will make a few more ruffled scarves to occupy me a little. Oh yeah, and I am supposed to watch the GK's from 9:30 tonight, till DD gets home from work between 11:30-120. She may have to find someone else. DH could drive me, and they should be in bed, but her BR is a long way from her living room. Off of here for a bit to cry in my cheerios, lol.

    So sorry to hear how miserable you are! I ripped my big toe nail off once while on public transportation, thought I would die before I got to my destination. And we were on a walking vacation! New shoes with no toe in them needed to be purchased before I could negotiate that! It was a while before it grew back in, but I think you'll have at least part of a nail by summer. Hope you feel better soon.


      Re: Woe is Me Update

      The toe thing hurts. I've never had one removed by a doctor, did that myself when I dropped a can of chili on my toe. The nail split in half, lost part of it within a couple days and the rest of it about a week later. It grew back in normal looking, just took a while. The thing that got me about the toe when injured was the throbbing, about drove me nuts.

            So sorry - this sounds very painful. Hope you are feeling much better sooooooooooooooon!


              Re: Woe is Me Update

              Oh my that sounds painful! I am the same way, I hate to ask for help. I am finally starting to feel human again (this darn bronchitis just won't go away!!!) Praying for a quick recovery! Lots of Grey's Anatomy on Netflix helped me through (I think I have watched 3 seasons in the last 2 weeks).... Hugs, Lisa

                Re: Woe is Me Update

                Ouch!!! Nail pain is the worst!

                DD had to have an ingrown toenail removed a few years ago-thought she could drive herself home afterward-NOT!

                I totally understand the depend thing- broke my foot a couple years ago-On crutches /in a boot for 9 weeks! Couldn't drive of course. Honestly was a danger to myself and everyone around me with crutches. poor dog was scared to go near me-i dropped the crutch on her so many times.

                I hope you find a way to numb that toe a bit(my toes are cringing just thinking about it)

                  OUCH! So sorry to hear this. Life has handed you some's the time to make lemonade just for you.
                  Maybe read a good book, work on your scarves, watch some favorite movies, look at old pictures and remember the good times that bring you joy. It's healing time for Marilyn and may it be fast and may you relax and enjoy your lemonade.

                    Marilyn - I am so, so very sorry that these people are making so many BAD jokes about you having to DEPEND upon others. I definitely hope that you realize I have more POISE than to do that to you. I know you will PREVAIL and experience nothing but DRY COMFORT.

                    I hate to tell you exactly what happens to me when I hear of someone experiencing severe pain . . . it is not printable. Get to feeling better soon.

                    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                      Re: Woe is Me Update

                      Oh Marilyn, i feel for you.

                      I had the ingrown toe surgery with the sliver taken off twice on both of my big toes and i know exactly how you feel and it aint fun!!

                      Big hugs comming your way!!

                      God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
                      The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
                      A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
                      And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.


                        Re: Woe is Me Update

                        ouch and hugs for feeling better. but this may just be someones way of telling its time to take a small break and rest. You do so much for everyone , now sit back and rest , watch tv read and plan all the things you want to make...remember to make a list

                          Aww sweetie - sorry to hear you are hurting. I hate to depend on others too, but sometimes we must. So, nurse your foot and heal well. You will soon be up and moving again soon.


                          What if you woke up today and the only things you had were the things you thanked God for yesterday? :icon_hug:quilting trish

                              Oh Marilyn, you sound absolutely miserable and with good reason. Keep that foot up above your heart and that should help with the throbbing. Get yourself a good book or get out the movies you love and try to take it easy. I know it's not women are used to doing it all.

                              I hope you feel better soon my friend.

                              Methinks it is a token of healthy and gentle characteristics, when women of high thoughts and accomplishments love to sew; especially as they are never more at home with their own hearts than while so occupied. ~Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Marble Faun, 1859
