This isn't really the post you think it will be.  I hope.

I had this vague idea of being able to increase mobility.  I don't know how successful I might have been, but there are things I wanted to do.  Unfortunately, the broken toe has prevented that for the time being.  I really don't think it's permanent, but for the time being it means plans are put on hold.

Unfortunately, the timing could have been better.  There was a Suicide Prevention Walk going on that I would have liked to attend.  Despite what people think, I'm not really as anti-social as I seem to be.  Even so, it wasn't about being social - too many of my friends and peers have chosen that way out.  I'm being somewhat hypocritical here, but that's what I do best.

Unfortunately, I'm not going to be able to go.  I probably wouldn't have been able to do the whole thing with my knee anyway, but there's just no way I'd make it past the car ride there now.  Walking sucks, but the whole wearing a shoe with this thing is what really gets it.  Sheesh.

I just want to say that I would have been there if I could have.  I'm not entirely sure it would have been for the right reasons, but some of those people lost were friends.

Mentor397 - The Toe Blog.

It's not meant to be this way, but this is what it seems to be.  Sorry about that.

It's been a couple weeks since I fell.  It's been a week since I cracked the toe again, or at least, it made a cracking noise when I abused it.  Over the last couple of days, it has mysteriously swollen and gotten darker.  Did I do something while I slept?  Is it something more nefarious?  I have no idea.  I'll give it a couple days and if I don't go insane from lack of sleep, I will probably head to the doctor.
