Well, I have better news. I’m no longer all-consumed by the thought of water. I still have to battle the thoughts on a day-to-day basis, but it hasn’t been impossible for me to do other things whilst I’ve been thinking about water.
For example, I have successfully been to the podiatrist in Cheltenham three times now. This time a couple of months ago, I would never have been able to achieve this. We’ve been dealing with my foot problems in a myriad of ways, like getting custom arch support insoles for my feet and learning how to care for my feet properly. I didn’t realise feet could be so fragile if I’m being perfectly honest.
I’ve been feeling a lot freer ever since I started focusing on things other than water. I feel like I can breathe again, which is another out-of-water pun that I wish I wasn’t making. Even when I try not to, everything just comes back to the water. Okay, sorry. I need to come back to the present. I was talking about how this whole experience has been freeing, and it really has.
I’ve spent so much time working on myself and learning new things. You should have heard all the interesting stuff I learnt about fungal nail infections. In the Cheltenham area, it’s not hard to find a podiatrist who knows their stuff, but I feel like mine knows more than anyone else. He told me about all the different types of nail infections that people can get and how to try to minimise the chance of getting them. He told me how to help mend my feet. He told me general facts about feet. Pretty much you name it, he told me it.
Okay, I best be off now. I have to do my foot exercises before the end of the day. If I don’t do them every day, my progress will be stunted. I don’t want to have sore feet anymore.
