Digression Part 2

I will go back to writing about my walk but just an update on the foot. Worst case scenario isn’t so bad. In spite of lots of medical professionals telling me that it would take months for the ulcer to heal, it turns out that I am healing extremely well. I was puzzling over the discrepancy between what I was initially told and the reality of it and, of course, it is because they don’t have a lot of data on healing time in youngish, relatively fit people. Because those people do not get ulcers. Elder folk do, those with circulatory problems, those with diabetes: in all of those cases, healing is extremely slow.

I am doing much better. Onto oral antibiotics now but my foot is still really sore and I don’t have a time frame as to when I am able to walk properly and even drive again. The job that I thought I was getting, yeah, that’s disappeared. They couldn’t wait and I understand.

I can’t walk or run so no exercise (but crutching around is frigging exhausting) and this is helping to depress me. You know, along with the lack of money, lack of employment and loss of a great job.

It will get better; I am just a bit miserable right now.


About quirkycharm

I like to think that I have a certain quirky charm but I am probably being optimistic. Acquired taste, perhaps, which many don't acquire. This is about my fifth blog out there. My hosting companies kept going out of business or my IT exhusband kept hacking into them and I would move again. I don't do twitter, I barely do facebook, I don't try and 'monetize' my blog. I love my husband, my grown children and my job and this particular incarnation of oversharing my life comes at a time when I am the most content that I have ever been. I write always, sporadically during the good stuff and exhaustingly during the bad.
