Pyramids Or Podiatry / Pirámide O Podología

La version español está después de la versión inglés.

CONTRIBUTING SIGNIFICANTLY TO my depression problems these past weeks has been the pain I've been experiencing in my hip — since September. From everything I've read I think it's probably sciatica. I had a sonogram two weeks ago and will follow up soon. Meanwhile, the pain has been unpleasant — waking me from a sound sleep if I roll in the wrong direction. Walking, however, feels great. So, I do as much of that as I can. Monday, I took a long walk. I stopped along the way to photograph a new sand sculpture with a solar-powered fountain and discovered that the artist was selling jewelry. I liked him and wanted to support him, so I bought a pendant I didn't need. A pyramid (or a triangle) — ceramic and fused glass. He placed the cord around my neck and I continued my walk. An hour later, when I returned home, I realized I was bending and moving painlessly. I don't seriously believe in the power of the pyramid. However...

Note 1:
I took off the pendant when I went to bed. I woke up in pain. It's back around my neck. Just in case.

Note 2:
See the final photo for what I had on my feet last night. I didn’t notice until we were walking home after dinner. I wonder if that's causing the hip problem.

CONTRIBUIR SIGNIFICATIVAMENTE A mis problemas de depresión estas últimas semanas ha sido el dolor que he estado experimentando en mi cadera — desde septiembre. De todo lo que he leído, creo que probablemente sea ciática. Me hicieron una ecografía hace dos semanas y la seguiré pronto. Mientras tanto, el dolor ha sido desagradable  — despertándome de un sueño profundo si giro en la dirección incorrecta. Caminar, sin embargo, se siente genial. Entonces, hago tanto de eso como puedo. El lunes, di un largo paseo. Me detuve en el camino para fotografiar una nueva escultura de arena con un fuente con energía solar y descubrí que el artista estaba vendiendo joyas. Me gustaba y quería apoyarlo, así que compré un colgante que no necesitaba. Una pirámide (o un triángulo)  cerámica y vidrio fundido. Él colocó la cuerda alrededor de mi cuello y continué mi caminata. Una hora más tarde, cuando volví a casa, me di cuenta de que me estaba inclinando y moviéndome sin dolor. No creo seriamente en el poder de la pirámide. Sin embargo...

Nota 1:
Me quité el colgante cuando fui a la cama. Me desperté con dolor. Está de vuelta alrededor de mi cuello. Por si acaso.

Nota 2:
Ver la foto final de lo que tenía en pie la noche anterior. No me di cuenta hasta que estábamos caminando a casa después de la cena. Me pregunto si eso está causando el problema de la cadera.

      Won't find someone here. San Geraldo has been known to regularly wear his underwear backwards.

      I DO need a valet and a hippie makes pyramid pendants. The next day, when I told him jokingly about my "magic cure," he (thankfully) laughed and said, "Well I don't know about magical powers, but at least it was made with love."

  3. Chronic pain takes a toll. I don't know what to say on the shoes . . .

      You certainly know about pain. Mine can't compare to what you went through. I think they're both very nice shoes.

  4. The pendant is pretty - why not wear it! As for the shoes I take a walk daily and one summer day when I got home and went to take my sandals off I realized I had done the same thing! You would think my feet would register that they felt different from one another.

      On the walk home from dinner, I did think my feet felt odd. That's when I looked down and then took that picture. Unbelievable.

  5. Oh, that last photo made me laugh! Sorry to hear about the hip pain, that's a real chronic annoyance.

      The hip has honestly been significantly better lately. Only certain positions cause pain, and not as much as before. Is that a glimmer of hope I see? I was stunned when I looked down at my feet.

  6. Don't take it off, just incase you're immortal with it

      The shoes would definitely do it. But I don't think I've been wearing them every day (then, what would I know).

  8. I feel your pain; well similar. My left hip, leg, and lower back hurt almost constantly these days and sleeping is a problem. It doesn't hurt when I run, though, so I run most days. Hope the pyramid solves your problems. I will look for a pyramid of my own . . . .

    Dudo is aghast that you would go out wearing those shoes.

      So sorry about your pains. Glad you can run. I embarrass Dudo constantly.

  9. Hubby regularly goes out with clothing inside out...but never two different shoes. Must get a hall mirror so you can do a once over before you head out. I hope you get some relief from your pain - that sucks!

      Yep, I've done that with T-shirts. Jerry has worn underwear backwards! You'd think I would have noticed the shoes when I slipped my foot in one and tied the other. At least they were both black.

      This is exactly what Cinderella did when that damned prince had one of her glass slippers.

  11. Maybe you need to buy a few more items from that artist! I like the pendant and would wear it anyway. :)

      I bought a piece the next day that I like much more. It includes a small spiral shell from our very own beach.

  12. oh my a fashion faux pas, two different shoes? Wear the pyramid jewellery who knows healing powers.
    Hope you fell better soon.

      I've started to put on a wrong shoe but have never before not noticed as I'd done it. (Well, except for when i went out in one brown sandal and one black one... but other than that they were identical so the feel was exactly the same).

  13. I bet you have another set of shoes to match this set.

      Well, I do have a pair that looks very similar but that pair has a right-footed lace-up shoe and a left-footed slip-on. In terms of fashion, they make a similar statement. Probably didn't need to buy the second pair.

  14. Oops. But wait... you didn't notice that you only had to tie one shoe?
