It is very nice to have my son home for a bit over the Christmas holidays.
Yesterday the weather finally warmed up here, but as it is i am staying indoors to rest.
The case is i have sore toes. I have asked around and googled things. Not finding and getting a lot of useful information.But i decided the most sensible thing to do seems to stay warm and rest. and massages as many as i can get.
As metaphysical causes i found feet stand for future, but the big toe for dominance. -repressed desire to dominate- i found somewhere.
Okay i will think about that. The future might make sense, i do feel more ever recently that i have to make a decision about my future. And for dominance :) ERASE what i say next:: i wonder if i should really look for a new partner, one that i can lovingly dominate .
back to the basic facts.
On Christmas eve i got my toes really cold, but not colder then usually after a long trip in severe weather.
I do have to say, this year i wear normal ski boots, compared to my big boots. I was tired of skiing on heavy duty skies, that have bindings fit for bunny boots.
Anyway warming up my toes at home, wnt fairly normal. I remember one year i once had incruciating pain while warming them up.
Now the pain seemed to come later, somehow delayed. pins and needles feeling.
On boxing day i went out for a prolonged time again, and after that trip the pins and needles had worsened, or maybe more now i was truly alerted.
On google i found so little , the 811 nurse. Only helped by saying , i might have some nerve ending damage. her book said to go to the doctor immediately. Which i haven't done yet.
Anyway somewhere i did read rest/massage and that it might take a few days to a week.
So i will go with that, and let you know.
I did find though that frostbite is a very serious condition
I suppose we live a little on the edge here in the Yukon
The nurse ( from down south) asked me if i often have sensitive skin to the cold. Yes i do!
Which to her book requires a visit to a physician. But i figure living here, being outdoors a lot, that is daily life. My cheeks have put up with a lot over the years.
And one more note, one year i did get frostbite on my cheek, a hard patch of white skin, it recovered well, but for a few years that would be a sensitive spot to the old, i had to cover my cheek with a scarve being outside in sub minus 20 temperatures. That spot has now totally recovered, even on those days last week my cheeks stood up to the weather uncovered.
I just wanted to tell this, maybe you have similar experiences, or questions
or some answers for me.
ps and i drink my herbal teas: nettle, labrador, rose , potentilla, artemisia etc
