    I spent a ton of money on a nuclear bone scan to tell me there were "degenerative changes" in the bones of my feet. I could hardly walk last winter. The doc didn't even call me in for a follow up; the nurse told me this over the phone. I asked "so what now?" thinking like supplements or something. She said "take Aleve for pain."

    I took an intense round of vitamin d and that seemed to help. I had a significant deficiency and that affects calcium absorption, right? I think that's what I remember. Giving up the cutesie cardboard-soled shoes helped too. I think my worst probs came from walking on large gravel in cheap flats; I thought my heels were fractured, but no breaks on the scan. So must've been just bruised.

    All of that to say: foot probs are no joke.

    Since I'm so good at diarrhea of the mouth, yet have been around living life with it's challenges for a while, could I suggest we might consider it the dirty D word? Depression? Nothing we can "snap" ourselves out of? Sometimes it's seasonal, sometimes it's a lifetime struggle. When you've been working hard to stay out of a funk, find a happy place, life happens and bingo, your knees got knocked off. IMO, folks try so hard to be funny and liked, not offend, bury the frustration, but sometimes, just get upset! Don't want to gauge words to be sure they don't hurt feelings. IMHO, I'm a newbie talk-a-lot here, pretty clear that I'm a nuisance pest, but this is Granny's thread. She should be able to speak her mind. [​IMG]
