Day 12: Day of Rest

Kick your feet up! What is your ideal day in? When you’re having a bad day, or a long week – how do you relax, recharge, and reset yourself? #HAWMC


Day of Rest

In the middle of writing my post for day 11 of this blog challenge, I managed to stub my toe so badly that the nurse I called insisted I go to the emergency room. X-rays of my foot were taken at UCSF and they confirmed that my little toe was broken. My poor toe was taped to the next one and I was fitted with an orthopedic shoe which I must wear for the next few weeks if I want my toe to heal properly. I was also instructed to ice my foot – which has a lovely black and blue area surrounding my toe – every couple of hours and keep my foot elevated above my heart even when I’m sleeping. (I currently have my foot on my desk as I write this. Thank you yoga!) 

So, imagine my surprise when I took a look at the prompt for day 12. It began with, “Kick your feet up!” Really?

I have had many strange coincidences and mysterious experiences in the course of pursuing recovery from a disabling case of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. But I have to say, this one really surprised me! Do you think it means anything? One friend (Cy, that’s you) has already said he believes this happened because I need to learn to ask for more help…

  1. Hi, I just found your blog and sent a friend request to you through FB. I live in Berkeley, the East Bay, and I’ll looking to network with people like you. I’ve had fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue for years now.
