My foot isn't as fully healed as I'd like it to be — I can walk short distances without significant discomfort, but I'm still having to consciously limit how much I walk or I suffer later.
So yesterday I went to see my acupuncturist
, whom I hadn't seen in several years, and told him about my foot injury not healing as well as I'd like it to.
"Of course," he said, "you know — actually, I don't know whether you know this — with injuries like this, the most important thing is to avoid ice."
Okay, so given that during the six weeks or so after the injury I went through enough ice to fill a wading pool... what do we do now?
"We're going to have to hit this repeatedly in quick succession," he said. "You should come in either Thursday or Saturday. Thursday would be good. Both would be better."
Next time I get injured, I'm going to see Joel right away, instead of waiting two months. *sigh*
