Two feet! In shoes!
Yesterday I had what will likely be my last follow-up with my surgeon. I had many questions and areas of concern, but he was very happy with my progress and alleviated a lot of my worry.
My main area of concern was the continuing pain, especially pain that gets worse when I am not using my foot, mostly when driving with the left foot flexed at a 90 degree angle, and when lying…

It’s a beautiful day to suddenly remember Serious Marketing Reasons you have to be outside.
At PT for what I hope is the last time.
New scarf, as yet unworn dress. Soon to be shown the light of day.

He’s told me that my tendon is strong now but not to “overdo it.” I have no…
The reason women are turning you down for casual sex seems to be that, for one thing, a lot of you are calling them sluts afterward. Also, a lot of you aren’t bothering to try to be good in bed.
