Walk This Way

Though I'm not sure at what age I took my first steps, I never thought I would have to learn to walk a second time in my life. I really thought when I mastered it as a toddler that would be it.

I was wrong. I went an entire month without walking, at least without walking in my normal fashion. I hobbled all over the place, just didn't really walk. There were times in that month when I would be hobbling through the store with the husband and tell him my left hip hurt. I was putting all my weight on that hip because of my bum right foot.

Now that I'm back in tennis shoes, I'm wondering if I didn't seriously mess up my hip. It's a concern that grows more into an overwhelming fear with each day. I literally think about EVERY step I take. I try so hard to walk "normal". It seems no matter what I do I still come down strong on my left foot. My walking looks very clunky!

Today the husband and I were out shopping and he kept telling me to walk normal. It is frustrating because I can't.

I'm honestly worried that I may never walk normally again. I just keep praying that as time goes by I won't have to think about walking anymore. It will come naturally again.


  1. Why no therapy? I know when I hurt my ankle very badly, I thought I too would never walk normally again. You do think about it. You will! You may be overcompensating causing the hip problem. I am still praying for you!

  2. Hope your hip is feeling better. I have hip problems from running, and have been seeing a physical therapist which has helped tons.

    I'm stopping by to invite you over to the Arkansas Women Bloggers site. We'd love to have you join us!
