    CBDistillery

    it has been somewhat helpful with my arthritis in my hands with no weird effects.
    way better option than continuing with the Motrin or Advil

    today it took the edge off of the anxiety and pain from the shot. I should have not taken the Xanax.
    (4 years ago when I had the same procedure, my husband and the nurse had to lay across me to keep me from hitting the ceiling )

    Did they take the entire toenail off? This sounds so painful, at least you know when you go for the second toenail what it will be like and perhaps won't be as scary. Hope you feel better soon, think ARUBA!

    Remember at SuperFoods 2 years ago the worker who stepped on my toe and yanked my toe nail completely off?. It grew in weird but eventually as it got to the top, we were able to keep cutting it until we cut the weirdness off.

    I remember that Gaby. If it had been me I'd still be in the middle of the floor in agony.

    Jeez, we are cringing at the toe nail being removed. UGH! So sorry to hear that.

    Healing is SLOW.
    What is NOT helping is that I teach a couple of water aerobics classes and a couple of arthritis water exercise classes every week.
    Although I had been wearing a waterproof bandage.......because I have NOT altered my lifestyle letting it heal............I am in much pain.
    Sitting with the foot up, and the bandage off is fine pain free.
    Wearing a sneaker is impossible.

    I think that the stuff that they used "Phenol" to kill the root of the toenail and the way she jammed it in around the perimeter of the nail bed I think has caused even more pain.

    So, tomorrow I will pass on teaching the classes.

    I have 2 pair of new balance sneakers. Both new. Both cost over $90 each.
    One of the tops at the toe box is going to be cut out so that I will be able to walk in the airport.
    Either that or it ill be a wheelchair..........I cannot do that.

    That does not sound like fun!! At least you will be in Aruba soon and we all know that is a healing place.

    Toes take longer to heal. I bet keeping circulation going (without re-traumatizing area) will speed it up. Also avoiding alcohol and sugar might help. Good luck.

    I noticed Swimmers typically have beaten toenails
