Let Me Tell You about My Pain-in-the...

Well, my running career is over and I do mean over...I got up to about 2 minutes before I would return to my walking-self but I have now injured my right foot and the pain is excruciating...I have had several pseudo Doctors tell me what is wrong...it may be time for actual Doctor to do so as I am not getting better.
When I am in physical pain...I become less tolerant of others and their stupidity...
That is to say...when I am not in pain...I overlook things I should...when I am in pain...it seems necessary for me to set others straight...I guess so I may become a pain in their heel!
Long story made short...Hubby and I are no longer speaking...because clearly...I can't say anything nice!
I am half way through my friend Derek Maul's book In My Heart I Carry A Star...it is a collection of stories to be read during the Advent season. This week is Love...so...I am feeling anything but loving and loved...pain does that to us...it takes our eyes off of our God and makes us become isolated and mean...okay, maybe just me! Derek makes this point so much better than I here.
I am heading off to the Doctor to find out what is wrong and I am going to do exactly what he says for me to feel better...
Many of us are worried about the economy...and they are real worries...I don't intend to make light of it...I am in real pain!
But, regardless of my pain or the world's...God is in control...and we are His personal children and he cares deeply about our pain! There is no greater love than His...
and we are commanded to love one another as I have loved you...
I have some work to do!

Good luck to you!

Please let us know how it goes. NOT saying this is your problem, but it reminded me a couple years ago I had this horrid pain in my foot and I went to the dr and she looked and spewed forth this huge medical condition... I gave her the baffled "in english please" look and she said... your shoes are too small.

Humph.

Dern if she wasn't right.

I think it might be old running shoes...not enough support...I also run around on tile floors bare footed most days...Thank you...I just really would like some nice drugs at this point...or my Hubby and I will surely kill each other!

Diane said...

Feel better soon!!!

Marilyn said...

I hope you feel better soon, my son just had terrrrrrible foot pain so I understand what your saying. He wasn't a pillar of personality when he was in pain either.
Sounds like a great book.

Kori said...

I hope you start to feel a lessening of the pain soon! My thoughts are with you today!

Karyn said...

This would be why I only run when chased!

Derek Maul said...

I love you, Ronda. I love Bob too. Consequently I'll be (am) praying for both of you. Take care of that foot, and then love Bob with all your heart and strength. Pain sucks. Derek

Ronda's Rants said...

Thank you Derek...
Thanks for the prayers...we can always use them...I do love him...I just don't like him much right now!
Karyn, That is my new policy...actually I think I will just stand and fight!

Feet are one of the worst places to have pain, because it impacts our mobility so much.

Hope the doc can fix you right up.

Z's Mom said...

I hope you are feeling no pain soon and that everything gets worked out.

Fallen arches. I have fallen arches. Fallen boobs too but right now this is about the arches. It came on so fast. I shuffled for weeks until I went in to a podiatrist. Now I have million dollar inserts that have changed my life. It is like having underwire bras for your feet.

Pain makes loving quite difficult. I'm sorry about the pain in the heel. STINKS. Hang in there, lovely lady!

Dawn said...

Good luck! I hope everything goes ok at the dr.! Have a great week!

Jennifer said...

It could be a stress fracture. I got the book today and I can't wait to read it! Thank you so much!!!! I love you girl! And don't hate on the hubby too much. He has a penis and can't think like we do...god help 'em.

Scary Mommy said...

See? That's why I don't exercise-- no good can come of it ;P

Hope you figure it all out and feel better!!!
