Yesterday I participated in the “Jump Start Tour” of my University. It was a lot of fun actually and I learned a lot about the different buildings on campus and the services available to us. Although I knew most of these already it was nice to know where each of the services were housed. That being said it turns out that my feet are a lot worse than I thought. （ ＴДＴ）I ended up in a significant amount of pain yesterday and slower moving than ever. This is both good and bad. Good is that I know more about my limits and to make sure to mentioned my disability to the leaders of my group (#2!) on Tuesday at the full day orientation. Bad is that my feet aren’t as healed as I thought they were which feeds into my fears that the rhumatologist is correct that they may never heal and only continue to deteriorate.
Alas I will remain ever hopeful. Now that I’m fully registered and my fees will soon be paid it means that I, once again, for the first time since 2008 have benefits!! (((o(*ﾟ▽ﾟ*)o))) This is a very large source of excitement for me as I am on a number of prescription medications and through my school plan I get 80% coverage up to $250 per year per alternative therapy. Which means that I get to visit a physio therapist and get proper exercises to heal this issue. My best friend tore her ACL and through physio didn’t have to have surgery on it so I have high hopes for this venture! Also the school rec programs have deep water aqua-aerobics! WAHOO! No more looking like a creep in little old lady aquasize programs. SO excited. Now to research this huffla about gel nails and chlorine. I really hope it isn’t true. I don’t want to give up my nails. （＞ｙ＜）
