Lateral instability in the foot may result because of hyper mobility of the big toe and first metatarsal. Patients might feel like walking on ice skates. This doesn’t sound quite comfortable, especially if you are in a hurry to reach the destination! According to research conducted by specialists in the podiatric field, Morton’s toe is one particular phenomenon which can cause several other serious ailments. The patient may suffer from back pain, discomfort in the knee and hip portions. Arthritis is one common condition experienced by those having Greek Foot. Other health problems like bunions, hammer toes and Fibromyalgia are also considered to be direct outcomes of Morton’s Foot Syndrome. Be kind to yourself, be kind to your feet. Let them rest and give the time to heal when needed!! #mortontoes #mortonstoe #mortonsfeet #feet #greekfoot #hobbitfeet #smalltoes #geneticmutation #nabosoprzezswiat #barefootthrutheworld #travel #traveling #traveller #wagabunda #london

#talkaboutittuesday... counseling
.
.

Today my husband and I are going to counseling. I have struggled to share this but I feel like it’s important. It’s a part of my journey and it’s well.. reality. I have been going to counseling for awhile and it’s time that he joins me. .
.
.
We have been together for almost 7 years and a lot has happened.. we got married, had 2 babies, job changes, job losses, a mastectomy, body changes, gene mutation, goal changes, and lots of growth as individuals. With all those changes it’s important for us to come together now and figure out how we grow together and not apart. .
.
.
One thing I took away from my recent summer retreat was how important your relationship is with your partner and how this affects them in ways we may not see because, let’s be honest, it’s all about us here for awhile. With my mastectomy came so many changes within myself that I didn’t know would occur and it changed my path in life, way of thinking, and what was important to me. When my path changes, so does my partners and vice versa. Some think counseling is the end and I think counseling is only the beginning of figuring out our life and how it will look going forward.

FILL DAY! This is the very large syringe used to inject my expanders with saline during this phase of reconstruction. I started fills at about 2 weeks post-op and continue doing them every week until I get to the size I want. A true #BuildABoob workshop. 🔧🔨⚖️💉

My plastic surgeon places a magnet over my breast, above my nipple (spoiler alert: I kept my nipples!) to find where the port is. It’s hidden under my skin, so the magnet is necessary to find it. It reminds me in a way of hanging a shelf on a wall and needing to find the studs with a stud finder. My surgeon then injects a needle with a very large syringe (pictured above), right into each boob, where the port is. Instantly, puberty strikes!
-
Mastectomies typically reduce sensation in breasts/nipples to a numbness, if any feeling at all, because of the nerves damaged/cut with the removal of breast tissue. I can say that I have decent feeling to the touch in both breasts, but they feel like they’re coming out of the dentist office numb and not really speaking properly. The large needle for these fills only feels like a pinch of a normal shot in my left boob, but I can’t feel it much at all being injected into my right.
-
Initial mastectomy surgery: 120cc’s
1st post-op fill: 60cc’s
2nd post-op fill: 60cc’s
3rd post-op fill: 60cc’s
-
So currently, I have a total of 300cc’s. This measurement does NOT dictate cup size because 300cc’s could put me at a D cup, but put someone else with a larger frame at an A cup depending on chest width and depth. All the things I’m learning about #boobs! ( • )( • ) 🤯

A year ago today, I had the mammogram and ultrasound that confirmed my biggest fear. I found my own lump, which had been painful and bothering me up until this point. I put it off for a few weeks, because I just didn’t want to know. But ultimately my gut already knew and so I made the appt. After my diagnostic mammogram, they added an ultrasound to take a better look and I basically got my answer then. I left @cltradiology a year ago with this lovely pink folder, full of what’s probably next for me (since nothing had been confirmed yet) and with an appointment for a breast biopsy the next week. This day forever changed everything. My point is to ALWAYS TRUST YOUR GUT. It will never lie to you. If I had ignored the nagging feeling that something was very wrong, who knows what today would be like and what shape I’d be in. Mine was caught at stage 2 and considered early stage. Had I waited, as aggressive as my subtype of cancer is, I would be at least a stage 3 or 4. Thankful to be here, thankful to be writing this here today - exactly 1 year later - thankful for my awesome cancer team and so so thankful for all the treatments and surgeries that are currently saving my life!

I about peed my pants the other day when this person on another post got really ugly because she thought someone was using some acronyms to cuss her out and call her some not pretty things. 🙄 like really??? MTHFR🤭😮👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
Ever heard of nutrigenomics?? Well, it is the study of how foods and nutrients affect our genes. Check this cool 😎 fact out 🔬!!! Each of our seventy trillion cells 😲 contains twenty thousand genes. You overwhelmed yet with how complex the human body really is? Those genes are the computer software of our body. But not all of those genes are perfect. We all have some variations that are not perfect and can cause some issues. One of the genes that is essential to our cellular health is Methylenetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR). Mutations in this particular gene can can cause an increase in particular health issues; heart disease, stroke, cancer, birth defects, hormone imbalance, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and even mood disorders...to name a few.
This MTHFR gene controls the MTHFR enzyme. This enzyme is essential in initiating particular chemical reactions in the body. One of these chemical reactions is referred to as methylation. This methylation process, in a perfect situation, uses a single carbon and three hydrogens for cellular processes like energy production, regulating genes, processing chemicals from the body and environment, forming and metabolizing brain chemicals, metabolizing hormones, nerve formation, replication of cells and cellular repair, and many other things.
Some variations of the MTHFR gene are more concerning than others. I read a great analogy; it is like putting really poor quality gasoline in a high performance car, it will run, just not very well.
Do you know if you have a mutation?

The last few days have been so rough my muscle spasms really gotten out of control. That’s NOT me moving. That’s just my muscles 😩

Ppls genes mutated as they migrated from where the original #firsthuman appeared. Which means that our biological predispositions adopted to the position of the Sun and other environmental effects, affecting our skin color and body features, so that we could survive the climates where our ancestors first settled and from which we evolved from where we were to what we are today!! #subsaharan #geneticmutation #naturaloccurance #survival #evolution #adaptation #dontbeignorant

I’m an incredibly private person. Initially I opened this account strictly to share my vegan food. So when folks would say “you’re vegan? But what do you eat?” I’d send them this account and they’d know that I eat a lot more than salads and tofu. I made it public for that purpose. I shared my pup. My adventures in the outdoors. Motivational quotes. Then BRCA1 happened. I debated sharing my journey publicly and initially chose not to. I had a hard time finding support online though. Not the kind of support I could relate to anyways. I lift weights. I’m healthy and straight edge. Then there are so many options after diagnosis. Having a defunct tumor suppressor means either monitoring and hoping for the best, or mastectomy. Then it’s over muscle or under? DIEP? DTI? Silicone or saline? Textured or smooth? Round or shaped? Fat grafting? My question was, what works best for athletes, and I had a devil of a time finding anyone that could relate.
That’s when I decided to share my journey. So if there was anyone out there, like me, that may need some advice or assist.
So yeah, I’m private as hell, but I talk about my breasts a lot here 😏

The universe works in amazing ways. These are some of my Breasties. They are each unique, beautiful, strong, amazing, and wonderful all in their own ways.
Each and every one of us brings our own story to the table and with each story it draws us closer to one another in a truly magical way.

For all those ladies that bitch about how much this hurts, you are crazy. And probably stopping women from having one. Literally less pain than stubbing your toe.
Uncomfortable? Sure. I hate other people touching my boobs haha.
If you are 40+, GO GET YOUR MAMMOGRAM DONE!

On the rainy day we had, we went to the local marine/aquarium for a tour. We got to see super rare lobsters! Soft shell lobster (light blue), blue lobster, and an orange lobster all due to genetic mutation! Ironically after I ended up finding a blue lobster shell on the beach we were at. There must be a lot of lobster out there if the blue lobster #geneticmutation is only 1 in a few million 🤔 #lobster #bluelobster #softshelllobster #explorenl #canada #seacreatures
