after hours of PT, too many pills, and endless tears of frustration, i am seeing Dr. Linton tomorrow. i am going to just straight up ask if i can get the shot. i understand why i need to do PT, because i physiologically understand what is wrong with my gait and the areas i am prone to weakness. i understand all of that, but with this inflammation, i can't do anything. at this point, physical therapy is almost an impossibility because it hurts to even walk, now.
last week i was doing great. i even went 2 days without serious pain, but now, it feels like the foot is back at square one.
i KNOW my body.
i AM freakishly symmetrical.
i KNOW that this is the exact same problem as my right foot.
i WANT the shot.
i WILL continue with physical therapy.
i just WANT the pain gone.
i'll let you know how it goes.
