I have been answering most of the "Questions to Ponder" privately in my journal, but I wanted to share this one. The most disheartening news I've gotten from a doctor was from my physical therapist. He told me I may never walk again as exercise--that I'd be able to do things like go to work, go the grocery store, etc, but that because of the "short tendons" in my feet, I might not be able to ever again go on long walks. Another doctor, a physiatrist, told me I would certainly walk again but I may never be able to run again. And a podiatrist told me that after all of this clears up, he could see no reason why I should not be able to walk or run again. "There is nothing physically wrong with the structure of your foot," he said. I am choosing to believe him! But it's sometimes hard to shake what these people have said. I used to fully and completely believe in doctors. This situation has really changed me. I don't know if I'll ever trust a doctor again.
