A few days ago, my feet started hurting me like a @#$%&* so I took anti-inflammatories (aspirin, ibuprofen, Tylenol) and put Salon-Pas aspirin patches on the tops of my feet. Eventually I noticed that my ankles were swollen more than I have ever seen before in my life. My first thought was “Look at that lymph! I have to make a doctor’s appointment asap.” My second thought was that I had better look it up in Louise Hay’s classic reference book “Heal Your Life”. My copy is in storage so I looked it up online.
Ankle pain: resistance to pleasure, resistance to moving forward.
It may seem that I have been posting random items lately:
The Art of Seduction
Harry Potter book club
Either they are all connected or I have 100 random thoughts in my head today, but writing them down helps me to organize them and to see what I am truly trying to cope with. I think that everything I have been writing is connected and the symptom generated from it is the swollen ankles. It is going to take me at least the weekend (Shabbat) to figure it out, but my instincts are telling me I need this affirmation:
I am willing to have fun.
Also, I soaked my feet in Epsom salts and the swelling went down from 3 inches to only 1 inch. Progress.
