Ouch. #stubbedtoe #toe #flipflops #dangerousfootwear
I am adding to this post because I have had a terrible experience with my big left toe. I will not share a picture because it is too graphic. It was an infection that got out of hand and was made worse by stubbing it in a pair of bad shoes that I purchased cheap at PAY LESS SHOE STORE. However I am not blaming Payless. The type of job I was doing at the time I knew better than to purchase those shoes for my dangerous job…but I neglected myself due to putting my son through private Christian School. I digress, I stubbed my toe hard…plus I already had an ingrown toenail. Not good..not good at all. I let it go because I was a supervisor and could not take a day off from work to get to the doctor. So a month went by. I ended up having the entire nail taken off and hemoragging through the gauze that the doctor had applied…not counting the pain and suffering from the doctor putting 5 needles into my toe…which did nothing to stop the pain at all. I was out of work for almost 5 months because of my BIG LEFT TOE…or as the doctor called it GREAT LEFT TOE! UGH..disgusting….I started to wonder if I would keep my big toe because the big wound on my toe would not heal. I have multiple DEBRIDING procedures…ONCE EVERY TWO WEEKS….PAIN..YOU HAVE NO IDEA….I did not know what is was to sleep without rocking myself to sleep. My son kept stepping on my toe by mistake and my dogs kept stepping on my toe too. No pain killer worked on that type of OPEN WOUND PAIN…nothing helped. Anyway I do not want to gross you out. I just want everyone to remember your feet and treat them well. Sacrifice and purchase the most expensive HEALTHY SHOES for your feet. You will understand why years from now. I almost lost my big left toe. It shows the scars from that terrible ordeal. The doctors said I had an ingrown toenail and then I fractured the bone in my toe and did not realize it. That is why I almost had an amputation because the fracture began to interact with the infected ingrown toenail after I wore cheap workshops and banged into the hard pointed stainless steel at my job. I was so stupid because I did not realize it until it was too late. Spare no expense on HEALTHY CLEAN SHOES for work and recreation.
