Although I’ve known this was inevitable, I put it off for years and tried the denial approach for as long as I could. Well, the wishful thinking is over.
Please believe me when I say those cute high heels really aren’t worth all the discomfort and havoc they might cause in your future. What I wish someone would have told me…Don’t put fashion over pain. Being a girl doesn’t require this kind of torture on a daily basis and the end result is way too high a price to pay.
Today I am off to have the first of two bunion surgeries this summer. Glup. My poor feet just can’t take the pressure of merely walking anymore. Even after not wearing heels for over ten years, my feet have continued to get worse. At some point, we must listen to our bodies and do whatever it takes to stay healthy and mobile. I think that is going to be the hardest part for me. Being down and unable to move around like usual. I’ll be in a not so fancy boot for four weeks, and then hopefully after the second foot is done and recovery is over around the end of August, I’ll be walking, running and dancing again. And you can bet I’ll be paying alot more attention to the shoes I wear from here on out.
So wish me luck as I start out on this new adventure today. Yep, I must think of it as an adventure. Research even. Then, maybe, just maybe I won’t beat myself up or have that ever looming panic attack.
Anyone else go through this? Have any recovery tips to share? I could really use some “Look at the bright side” statements here.
