Thank you for your thoughtful responses to my last entry. I know that I need to seek medical attention but I am not going there, right now. I have my reasons. One day, I will. Just not now. I think that my problem is bursitis. I fired up my Google fu and did a lot of reading on it. It matches my symptoms. This has been coming on for a long time. It is just fairly recently that it has become so uncomfortable. I imagine that one day I am going to require shots in my joints and lovely stuff like that. Good times.
Until then, I am just going to take it low and slow. I am determined to keep walking (my foot was fine, today) and I have decided that even if it does take me forty five minutes, at least I am moving and it doesn't hurt so much. Some walking is better than none.
Yoga isn't an option. I can't get down on the floor or be on my knees. Stupid fat on my stupid legs won't allow it. I don't have access to a pool I can't afford a gym. I am dying for new walking shoes but they aren't in the budget, right now either. I am hoping they will be someday, soonish. :D I just need to do what I can do.
We went and walked tonight. I took it at a gentler pace, my foot was fine tonight and my hips were okay, too.
I just need to keep moving and I need to lose more weight. The less I weigh, the less stress on my joints. And when I feel as if I have lost enough, I can go get a doc and get some treatment.
Husband had to take MIL to the ER. She is having some issues. She had extreme hip pain and went to the Urgent Care and the doc there told her it was sciatica. He gave her meds and sent her home. Tonight, she couldn't walk, her leg is all swollen up and she is in a lot of pain. Husband is home, right now waiting for her to call him and let him know what is going on then he will go back down there. I hope that it isn't anything too serious and that they can help her and she feels better.
Have you ever been nattering along in your blog and suddenly had your mind go completely blank?
Or is that just me? lol
