It seems that too much of a good thing isn't always good.
The pain I've been experiencing in my foot is called a Plantar Plate injury, sort of a pre-dislocation. Seems as though my joints are so loose and slipping, due to overuse, that I've literally touched a nerve. Two weeks of heavy prednisone, resting my foot and off-loading the pressure from the ball of my foot through orthopedics should help. Chronic foot impact and wear and tear have left me with a condition that, unfortunately, will never go away. And it seems that I have the condition in my right foot as well, but due to the screaming of lefty, righty has gone unnoticed. The key will be keeping it under control, the inflammation down and preventing further issues that could result in surgery.
The human body is such a mix of resilience and frailty. Right down to the microscopic details, all must be in perfect order and alignment.
I would be lying if I said I'm feeling grateful right now. It is not a good time to add one more thing in my life that I can't do. Could be worse, I guess. It's not cancer. It's not life threatening.
The thing that brings me most pleasure in my life right now, also brings the most pain.
Time to change feet.
