Apparently, I have "turf toe"
I hurt my big toe today - injured the joint where the toe connects to the rest of my foot. It's EXTREMELY painful and the area has turned black and blue. Looked up information online and I guess the condition is called "turf toe" and is a common sports injury. (I don't play sports, incidentally.) I'm currently hobbling around. I probably aggravated the injury a bit by putting on and wearing shoes when I had to take my kids places. Wasn't much else I could do. The annual city celebration is this week and today was a day for special kids events as well as my son's tee-ball picture day. Tonight I have been resting, elevating and icing it, which seems to be helping a little. Pain meds help, too.
