I am in considerable pain tonight.  It rained all day and I could not run the mill, so I wore rubber slip-on shoes and not the steel toes that I normally wear.  Had a big pecan slab fall and hit on the left foot, smashing my big toe.  It is swollen and that quarter of my foot has turned black, blue, purple, and red.  Constant throbbing pain.  Probably not much sleep tonight   :'(.

That is funny. :D I have had sciatic pain for years, it makes bending to weed the garden which I hate anyway or pick something off the floor an ordeal. The pain starts at the tail bone and shoots down my left leg to the toes. I have to help Karen get out of a chair or off the bed, she has severe arthritis, and have to be very careful how I lift. I have had a few spasms that almost rolled my socks down.

Danny and David, there are times when our health sends us a big wake up call.
I broke my right arm in two places this spring.
Gravity won the fight that day.  ;D

You guys seem both seem to be suffering from 'slabitis'.  :D  :D
Take time to get good and properly healed up, it's well worth it.

Crocs are convenient especially as water shoes but they have no support and make my feet hurt.

Ok doctorb, tell me what happened.

When I take a shower first thing in the mornings, the hot water really makes my sinuses run.
This causes be to gag and cough that stuff up.
This morning I woke up and the nerve in my leg was aching as always. I took my hot shower as usual.
While drying off I was going through my usual coughing spell.
I put my foot up on the toilet lid to dry my hoof off and when I did I coughed REALLY hard.
It felt like a knife went in my lower back and I had to sit down really quick.
I sat there for maybe 25 seconds.
When I stood up all the usual pressure was gone out of my lower back. I felt NO nerve pain what so ever.
It was like nothing was wrong and I have had NO pain all morning.

What went right?
I'm thinking......

Probably happened because you didn't use a pallet under the Outhouse.
Wallets too thick, move to other side or front pocket. :D
