Yes, my toe was in fact in a painful jam the 2nd week in August. I removed my light blue Dearfoam (love that brand for slippers!) slipper off my left foot due to my big toe feeling abnormal, and I was greeted with a purple bruise. No wonder walking everywhere faced me with extreme achiness!
Thinking back, I pinned the pain to a heavy book falling from high up on my top closet shelf smack dab in the center of my now-throbbing appendage the day prior. I knew to take it easy for the next day or so to let the healing begin.
Applicable to you how?
First of all, BE CAREFUL in whatever you do because you’ve only got 1 body to work with.
Additionally, not allowing adequate time for an injury to heal may very well cause it to worsen, so nip it in the bud!!
