Heels: 1, Weed: 0

So last week I had managed to hurt my left foot wearing heels. I thought I'd dress up nicely for a change, seeing that it was my 4th wedding anniversary. It would have been okay, except I walked across campus in the heels. Not my brightest idea.

Before the end of the day, my left foot was in considerable pain, and not because of my foot rubbing against my shoe and causing blisters (I didn't get blisters). No, apparently, the cuboid bone (I think that's what it was, he was talking fast, despite my asking him to repeat it several times) in my foot was slightly out of alignment, according to my physiotherapist. What I could gather from him, because it was slightly out of alignment, it was interfering with some muscles and nerves, causing the pain.

Now my foot's all taped up, and I'm going to follow his instructions: alternate between hot and cold to help with the healing. I don't know how that will help, but I'm going to trust him. After all, I'll be going on vacation in a week, and doing lots of walking, so my foot better be better by then.

Two quotes popped up in my head.

"cute shoes are never comfortable" from teletoon 6teen and "Ever try shaking your ass in 4 inch heels?" by Catherine Willows, CSI.

I think I watch too much TV.

It seems the bug about cross blogger version login is now both way. I cannot use my login to leave comment any more. BTW, I have changed setting on my blog so you can leave comments.

I am so sorry to hear that, that sucks a bunch. This is totally weird tho, because this is such deja vu for me, have you posted about these shoes and this event similar before? I swear I knew EXACTLY what it was about your foot before I read your post. WEIRD!!!

Get better!
