Shopping Success!

August 2nd, 2012

Well, I got to go shopping this week.  My lovely friend picked me up and drove me and we wandered around slowly for a few hours trying to find an outfit for a wedding that complemented my Airboot!  OK - I had to stop for several coffees and chats but I spent most of the day walking around using my crutches and my AT didn’t hurt!  In the end I bought 3 outifts because I couldn’t resist a bargain! :)

When I got home I did my physio exercises, one of which involves rocking my weight from my right (good) foot to left (injured) foot.  due to the swelling under my heel and on the sole of my foot it usually hurts and it’s the one I like doing the least.  I did it.  I didn’t need to use my crutches to support my weight and it didn’t hurt!!  I think the extra exercise is really paying off.

I’m walking about the house barefoot, with sticks still, but trying to put more weight on the foot.  So far so good…. will take the advice I’ve been given (thanks Sheena and eva10) and push myself a bit more.  I’ve been really scared about doing more damage but I think I’m getting my confidence back.

I’m determined to get a camping trip in this summer…….
