Day 90: *sigh*
Thursday, March 31, 2011
Today was just a washout of a day. I hurt my back (again) this morning and it's been nagging at me all day long - not enough to really incapacitate me (thank goodness) but enough to keep me from doing 90% of what I wanted to do.
I did get to the physio / foot specialist again re the plantar fasciitis. They're going to get me an appointment with the orthotics people so I can have a pair of custom-made (fitted to my foot, from what I understand) inserts that should help. The reason I'm having all this trouble? I'm flat-footed, to put the old-fashioned term to it (sez the specialist). I said 'Well, if the idea is to realign my feet and ankles, won't that also alter - knees? hips? and ultimately, do something more (yikes!) to my back?'
'Oh, quite probably' sez him. 'You may require a lot of time to adjust to the changes.'
I'm not even going to start on that. I'm on a waiting list for three months or so. And I have NO gripes about that a-tall, since this service is provided free and I'm not an emergency case. (If this was an emergency, they would see me pronto, so I'm not looking to beef about it.)
I will cross the bridge(s) when I come to it.
Meanwhile, the list of things I didn't get done today is growing ever longer. *sigh*
All the same - goodnight, Sparklers, wherever you are...
