My Foot Splint
Well, last night marked the fourth night wearing my foot splint. You know, it is not uncomfortable. So far I have had no ill effects from wearing it... you know where it makes something else sore or tender. I do seem to wake up more in the night because when I turn or move my leg, I am aware of it. Is it doing what it is supposed to do? Hmmm... I can't say for sure. But I can say it is doing something. When I wake up in the morning, I am able to walk to the bathroom without bigtime pain. It is not totally pain-free... I mean I can still tell that I have this tenderness in my foot, but I am thinking that it is working, and it is going to take time to get me to that place. Therefore; I am going to continue to wear this splint; I am going to continue to wear my orthotics all the time; I am not going barefoot at all. I am so ready to be able to jump up and do what I want to do. So... I will end by saying how thankful I am that this seems to be doing its job. I am thankful that I can walk even though I have some pain. I am trying to turn any complaint into thankfulness. Try it... you will be more aware of your complaining, and you will be more thankful!
