I’ve decided I’m going to give steroid shots a try for my PF. It’s been almost six months that I’ve been dealing with it and my mental health can’t stand to have another run cut short by foot pain. I am grumpy. And impatient. I’m doing all the stretching and icing that a mother can reasonably expected to do — and I’ll continue to stretch my brains out, but I need a bit of relief, so I can do a bit of running — and be a bit less crazy. For Eliot’s sake. It certainly sounds like shots are a short term solution — most effective for about three months — but three months would just about do. And then I promise I would be happy to take a huge break. Really. Maybe I’ll try my hand at Jai Alai after that — or macrame. Headed to the pool now to bleed the boy of energy. It’s still in the 90s here in San Antonio. Come visit.
Oh, and if anyone’s had experience with steroid shots for PF, I’d be thankful to hear about it.
