Previously, my schedule goal has been to update Monday-Wednesday-Friday. This has been difficult to maintain lately, because I’ve had a lot of medical appointments and other medical issues in general.

I tend to have fewer appointments on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so I’m going to switch to updating those days. Hopefully it will also be easier to update twice a week rather than three times.

My body is all kerfuffled at the moment.

I have a Morton’s Neuroma on my right foot, which basically means that the tissue around one of my nerves there has thickened. As you can imagine, this is fairly painful. I started having a really bad pain flare – triggered by the foot pain, but spreading throughout my body. Add to that some depression due to all the pain…

I managed to see a podiatrist, and he started giving me diluted alcohol injections to break down some of the tissue. Or something. Don’t ask me exactly how it works. This has improved my mood greatly in some respects, as I’m not in as much pain. However, my foot just feels weird sometimes. Like there’s this ball of tissue that I can’t feel, so I don’t quite know where to put my weight. I’m hoping it’s not permanent or anything. The thought that it might be is slightly worrying. I need to call the podiatrist, I suppose.

Anyway, I’ve still been having a continuous pain flare of sorts. It varies in intensity. Not enough exercise, too much exercise, being thrown off balance because of my foot…it’s hard to get my body centered again once it’s gone into a really bad flare. I consoled myself yesterday by buying three new books, and I have a pile of books I want to reread. Currently, I’m alternating between speculative fiction and books on postmodernism. My dog is also an excellent console-r and nurse, as he likes to snuggle. Family and friends are being very supportive.

All in all, it could be worse. However, it is one of those things that’s just very frustrating. I was doing so well. I know this state of affairs is only temporary…

This could be seen as a roundabout way of saying that, while I’ll try to stick to schedule, updates may be slightly sporadic. When I’m in a lot of pain or I’m doped up on painkillers, it’s hard to write a coherent post. I have a few posts saved as drafts for occasions such as this one.

Just a quick update on blog structure, update schedule, etc.

I’ve created several new tabs at the top. These include one dealing with the update schedule and another with a few disclaimers. I wrote them, which means they’re exciting and worth reading!

Some highlights from the schedule:

My goal is to update three times a week, with the potential for more updates if I find something really exciting or time sensitive.

Expect updates roughly every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

The disclaimers include some important points, such as:

  • I am an individual without a medical degree….
  • I use the word “challenges” on purpose, because I don’t see my physical ability level as something that should define who I am….
  • I’m not saying that disability is something you can “think yourself out of” if you just “work hard enough”….
  • Health care issues require institutional change….
  • I don’t speak for the entire disabled community

There’s more stuff, but you should really just check out the pages. And if you haven’t yet, the introduction is definitely worth reading.

About Me

This blog is intended as a place for me to reflect on my own healing journey, in the hopes that others may also gain insight from my experiences. I've "borrowed" a line from Robert Frost's poem, The Road Not Taken:

'Two roads diverged in a wood, and I
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.'

I think the most important thing for me now is that I feel empowered to be a force for positive change in my life. And that, my friends, has made all the difference.
