Off My Foot
So I met a slight mishap a couple of nights ago causing extreme pain to my right heel whenever I take a step. At first I thought it was just a bruise… but as I kept on walking, it became more painful everytime my heel touches the ground. I ended up not going to work the day after the incident and went to the doctor for a check up.
Turns out my foot got traumatized with the impact as I alighted from the moving jeepney. If the pain won’t go away by Friday, I’ll need to have an x-ray just to rule out calcaneal spur… or what the doctor explains is an extra bone under my foot. [This said bone got the impact as I landed… can’t exactly explain the pain.]
Therefore I’m under medical orders to be off my feet with my medical certificate stating “Traumatic Rheumatism”.
Geez… such a mouthful. And so medically-sounding. Lol
Anyway, now I’m literally and figuratively off my feet. Still a bit ambiguous as to how I should feel about it though. On the one hand I get to rest from work (although it’s only been less than a week since the start of school) on the other hand it sucks that I can’t do any physical activities that involve my feet (walking, jogging, biking) and missing out on a number of activities slated over the weekend. Being a couch potato isn’t as appealing as before. Living alone isn’t exactly easy when you can’t walk.
At least I get to sleep during the day, catch up on series reruns, and put my feet up.
I just hope the pain goes away. It would be a bummer to walk on my own for my xray.
Oh well. Challenge accepted!
