My Aching Foot

A week after my Brychametatarsia surgery I had a doc appointment. It was quick and the doc informed me that I will be turning my external fixator myself. This contraption is drilled into your foot and toe in order to internally correct the bone. 

The minute meds wear off on me i begin to feel tightness in my foot and throbbing. Theres a pinching sensation and sometimes a burning feeling. Needless to say, I take my meds and elevate my foot consistently.

Turning the fixator doesn’t hurt, tho I do feel some tightness afterwards. I suggest taking a pill 30 min before doing this. Also, with taking the pills remember to eat beforehand, to avoid nausea. I learned this the hard way as nausea became my #1 emotion the first couple days after surgery. 

It wasnt completely my fault because the appetite is really dramatically reduced after a surgery. So, after picking through dinner a couple nights my family started forcing me to sleep when i didnt feel good and drink tea. If I did feel hungry or was in desperate pain then they would give me the drugs. But I do believe it may just had been the fact that my body cant take Codeine. The doc prescribed me Codeine and I had all the side effects: nausea, irritability, dizziness, lack of concentration, depression, euphoria, heart palpitations, sweating, and dropping asleep in the middle of everything.

After complaining at my doc visit he said hed send me something else. Ill let you know how i manage with this new one. Today is day 8 and I woke up in no pain which is a great improvement. I turn the external fixator every 6 hours and I turn it COUNTERCLOCKWISE. From 12 o clock to 9 o clock.

My whole day revolves around turning that thing. I wake up, eat some plain potato chips and have a glass of water. Then I take the pill and use the bathroom. When back inside I prepare my bed and everything for my entertainment. Lastly, I turn that damn screw.
The pain is easing off these days so Im real hopeful. Thanxx for reading. 

Here are some pics!

The Lure of Fresh Groceries

In Brooklyn we are constantly tempted with the lure of fast foods and deli meats.

IMG_20150628_112218 (1)The occasional taco stand never goes out of style in the Big Apple. But honestly, little dietary adjustments can affect our whole lives.

And on the topic of eating healthy we should concentrate on the small farms in the tri state area that offer GMO, antibiotic and steroid free groceries.

I came across a chicken farm belonging to the Imani Community Garden on Schenectady Ave and Bergen Street in Crown Heights. The chickens greeted me at the gate, seemingly beckoning me to enter.100_0839

The Imani Community Garden sells the eggs from their very own chickens and grows herbs seasonally for their members. lydia Here, Lidia is holding a healthy chicken from the garden.

Recently, one Imani Garden representative, Salome Perry, registered the site as a co-op drop off location. So now you can enjoy the fresh herbs and groceries, not sold in stores. Salome (2)This garden can be found using the Farmigo.com website under Bed Heights Farm 2 U. All items from the farms on this website are locally grown to an impeccable healthy standard.

April Showers

When the sun is shining I’m great

I make plans to go out with my friends. Maybe even go out to the beach.

You know, be a normal person.

The suns rays give me the energy and food that I need to endure. And I love that!

But on cloudy days I recede to a place in the back of my mind.

A place where I can find the purpose for my life.

Focus on my liberties and find the pursuit of my own happiness.

Yellow Aura

Id been thrown off my guard

Someone came in and dropped me on my ass

I should’ve been expecting this, or at the very least,

I should stayed suspicious even after he said ‘I like you’

Cuz I was blinded by his light. U know, his aura and shit

At first his light was a deep blue almost like he was just at peace

Seemed cool, down to Earth, mayb a little too laid back

But hey, not all my weed smokers can be Michael Phelps

Then it turned to a red while he was talking about himself

He got real passionate about his novels and artwork

Which is always a good sign, passion is where I need to be

Later on he started emitting a yellow light, which is what blinded me

I got confused, figured it meant nothing since the night was going so well

Then BAM

You know, ladies. I blame ya’ll for this

I don’t know what happened previous to my vagina

But I’m not gonna let mine loose in the world

I don’t want a man to pressure me into sex, or say just what he needs

To basically present to me a replica of the type of man he thinks I want

The realest thugs are just that….100% sho nuff …..Real

Now I wanna take this time to recognize the Yellow auraaura

It represents joy, freedom, one who’s not tied to earthly things

One who enjoys the simple pleasures in life, and he’s staring at me

I’m not one for seduction, but he seduced me

He did all the right things at all the right times

Then transformed just as quickly as his light changed

U know what, You can suck me yellow aura

And to the man with the many hats you can suck yourself
