Kindness Only Takes a Moment


Hi everyone!  The video I have chosen for this post is "Kindness Only Takes a Moment."  It is a short, two minute video.

I am still in quite a bit of pain.  I spoke with a nurse on the phone today and she thinks I may have tendinitis and not bursitis.  Whatever it is, it is quite painful.  She suggested that  besides keeping my foot elevated and resting it to periodically put ice and warmth on it.  So this is what I am going to do.

The photo I am sharing is one that I took last week.  You just need to click on the image to see a larger view.

Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I really appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you can always share by clicking on the 'comments' link at the end of my post.

  1. That doesn't sound too good...do you have painkillers?

    1. Hi Helen, I do, but I prefer not to take them if at all possible. Mostly I will take it in the evening before I go to bed, so at least I can get some sleep.

  2. I am so sorry. I hope you can get to the right kind of doctor so you can get a diagnosis, then you will know how to treat it.

    1. For sure, Ginny. For now I am trying to rest and put ice and heat on it like the nurse suggested.

  3. Either of those is very painful. Can you take regular aspirin? It has anti-inflammatory properties. With me though, I like to take the edge off the pain but not dull it completely or I will do more damage to the injured area.

    1. Hi Lynda, I don't like to take painkillers except a couple of Tylenol before I go to sleep, I try to just let it take its course. Since the pain is caused from swelling I am working on putting ice on it to hopefully bring the swelling down.

  8. I've had tendonitis several times. I've been pain free following physical therapy and wearing orthotics every day. Not that much fun, but my ankle is doing okay. Wishing you relief from the pain.

  11. I know what is *tendinite* or tennis elbow. very painful. The onlything efficace is to rest. Usely cames with a repeting mouvment, as i did in a watches décoration studio. Cover towsen of plates to send abroad to decorate jeweleries shops window.
    But sometime, you can't stop, so I let it have electric inclusion.

    It goes as it cames.
    But now I am no more making series as I am freelance et do not work as match I use to. Retire lady !

  16. Take care & be patient...there is no quick cure for either problem. Open the window & let some fresh spring air into your apartment, & try to find something to keep your mind busy while you heal.

    Much love,
