it feels like it's always soooomething
the medication i've been taking for my head has really helped. i've felt so much better these past couple of weeks than i have in a very long time. but of course now i have something else going on. wtf?! for a couple of weeks i've had a dull pain on the top of my right foot. on sunday it was anything but dull and hasn't stopped hurting since. i googled it and most of the results pointed towards a stress fracture. my friend bonnie recently spent 6 weeks in one of those awful franken-boots because she had a stress fracture. i described my pain to her and she said that it sounded exactly like her stress fracture. oh noes! i went to the doctor today and he seemed to think that was the problem but after a clean xray he diagnosed it as tendinitis. now i'm following the R.I.C.E. method of treatment: rest, ice, compression, elevation. oh and of course lots of painkillers. hopefully it heals quickly and i won't need any sort of boot or brace.
