Hello my DC Friends, Wanted to say hello, have been really busy since moving to the cabin. Broke my foot last night so a little cranky tonight. BS has been up & down lately, a little higher today. Was wondering if my foot has anything to do with that? Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance!!!

What? About you being cranky or about your BS being up & down? :) Yes, shock to the body (although I would think your body would be use to shock and it would react when things are normal) It can not only effect your BS, but also your BP, as can any meds you may be taking for pain. I sure hope you were not trying to kick a merchant! :) Hope the break heals well and quickly. Jim

LOL, no Jim, was not trying to kick a merchant. I didn't even know my foot was broke. I even told the doc he was full of bologna then he showed me the x-ray. RATS. I had to apologize for being in the wrong.

You know, with moving, maybe you jumped down from the tailgate of a pick up. You will find as you get older, you are not there,,,yet, that stuff will break easier and heal slower. I know jtigerlady broke a small bone in her foot and she has been in a walking cast for months. As a borderline diabetic, your feet heal much slower than you would expect. If I get an insect bite on my foot, I can expect the mark to stay for about 6 months. Now I don't intend to break my foot, so I don't know how long it would take a break to heal. Why did you do something so foolish? Didn't you know it would hurt?

I don't know how I broke my foot, I wish I did. But at least I don't feel the pain, at this point anyways.

so sorry for your boo-boo! but don't you think the broken foot an extreme way to get out the the onerous job of unpacking, etc ? just kidding, please take it easy. do you hav a fireplace for a cozy stop from which you can direct the unpacking? just remeber it dosen't have to all be done in one day, the boxes will wait, just do the neccessary ones first. take it easy.

Watson4042: Thank you. Sadly I can't be around fireplaces or woodburners, or anything like that. It takes my breathe away. I gave alot away so I would not have to move the stuff…LOL. So now I have an uncluttered life at this point.

Hugs to you!!

I am sorry about the foot. I imagine your body having gone through a shock could go up and down with your readings. Is this cabin a permanent home? Does it have conventional heat? I know some cabin homes are really the size of houses with all the amenities of a regular home. Be encouraged this too shall pass. Sure hope you heal quickly Lots of Love! Christy

Same old crap, just trying to survive and stay warm, it's been a mild winter cold and snow wise, bit it has been so damp that some days it talks all I have to get out of bed in the morning, been down since I was denied the wheel chair so I could get out of the house and see some strange faces for a change. Keep that foot comfortable and take care of yourself!!! Hugs

Tom, where abouts are you? I think I may have access to a wheelchair that you could have. I just have to check the upstairs of a house. Our camp was willed the contents of the house and I am pretty sure I saw the leg rest for a wheel chair. I am in the Winchester, VA area. Jim

I have no idea how to get it to you, but I did verify that it is there, chair and leg rests. I will pull it out tomorrow and make sure all is well. It appears to be in fairly good shape.

Keep pushing . I think they are supposed to reject you a couple of times hoping you go away. Be a bee in their bonnet. I can not imagine saying no to a wheel chair!

Hi, there! You have been missed here on site. Every time I am in severe pain, my BGs go way up. I think it's the stress of being in pain. Moving could have caused some of that too, though. Take care, Kaiya. Carol

Caroltoo:: Thank you. It's odd though, I didn't even know I broke it, because I was walking. My foot was bruised oddly so I went into the ER.

Caroltoo
Caroltoo 2012-01-08 20:39:34 -0600 Report

That is odd. Do you have neuropathy that might deaden it somewhat?

Caroltoo 2012-01-08 20:47:23 -0600 Report

Well, maybe more to the point, it would effect the feet wouldn't it. I've been unclear on the distinction also, but things that are on the periphery are further away from the center of things, so I'd think it would be feet, hands, perhaps legs, arms, etc.

Caroltoo 2012-01-08 21:05:49 -0600 Report

Interesting and much more extensive than I would have expected. Don't you think that could have affected your ability to perceive the break? Maybe it also helps keep some of the pain from being conscious. My hubby broke his ankle a couple years ago and it kept him bedridden for 2-3 months. It was a very extensive break with plates on the inside of the ankle and pins on the outside. So sorry. Hope you do well with it.

More comfortable, for sure; but, yes, easier to overdue it and re-injure it. Do be careful you don't rush it.
