I'm a klutzy at times too! I like to hit my elbows on corners,like tables. I have a tendence to bump my big toe on chairs and other things. With it being winter where I live I ended up so far slipping and falling on my butt,three times! I bet you big toe is not as ugly as my right one! I had an ingrwon toenail taken care of in 10/08. The toenail never has grown in right and yo make matters worse,I have only half a toenail! Last summer a horse stepped on my toe and turned it bluck and blue! Over the fall half of my nail came off and still hasn't starting growing back! It is not pretty at all to look at all!

I bruise easily and I'm around horses a lot, as I'm sure you know. There is no telling how many times I've come back from the barn and noticed I have a bruise and don't even know how I got it. I know what it feels like to be stepped on by a horse, too! I don't think I've ever had a toenail to turn black and blue and to lose half of it as a result, though. Kathy.

Good morning kathy, I bruise easy to so it's nothing for me to have a new one. I have never been stepped on by a horse but know that 'has got' to hurt. Ryan is always stepping on my toes & that hurts & he's not all that big. Have a great sat, hugs, jo

Oh, Its not Good... If Hurt, Means Something There is Not Good. Maybe Go To Visit a Doctor, He Will Tell You What To Do... Because Its Really Not Funny.

Thank u for your response. My son wanted to take me tothe emergency room but i didn't feel that was necessary. There is nothing they can do or will do if u have a broken toe. I'm just glad it wasn't worse. Have a great weekend.

Ouchhh! That must be really painful dear! I do also hurt my toe once on a while. It is always my right toe and it really makes me teary. Well with regard to ugly toes. I would say I've seen so many people with nice toes and I sometimes envy. Mine are not as good as theirs. Anyway a good pedicure makes it lovely anyway.

TAHNKS for your kind response. It has been painful along w/the bruises i have other places to. I don't get around very well to begin with & this fall hasn't helped at all. I'm just thanful it wasn't worse. I hate bumping my toes to & i do alot especially in the summer because i like to go barefooted. Have a great sat.

My cousin just sent me an email saying she tripped over a cooler and bunged up her knee and broke three toes.

Oh yeah I know all to well what you're talking about. If this was possible I would gladly sight unseen make and place a bet that I would win hands down for having the most ugly toes, I am not exaggerating. One day a few year ago now I smashed my toes really really bad into the metal bed frame on my bed when I was changing the sheets on my bed. Hurt Oh Yeah so bad I couldn't even swear, I tried and all I could do was heavy breathing and words that sounded like hooooo hoooooo hooooooo With that my husband came looking and he asked me what was wrong it took me a few minutes before I could even speak. By time I got to tell him my toes were all swollen and got a very ugly shade of purple. Hubby the big hero takes a quick look and says bad alright but it's not broke. At that time I can now swear and I did asking him how he knew so much. Well guess what I did break it it is awful. My toes even went black and blue even between my toes. Hope it feels better soon.

I think my klutziness is how I earned my beautiful bunion. It is so strange to see that the top and side of my foot are flat now, with stitches.

Hi dear klutzy lol. I don't really think it's funny, for broken toes hurt! Slippers are fine for daytime, but mine hurt soooo bad when I was trying to sleep at night...even the covers were just too much pressure, so get better soon! And not all toes are ugly. I remember after Mom's hip surgery, the healing period was so long, and my sis and I took turns caring for her in her home. One day, I went over and she was propped on the couch, cool summer clothes and bare feet. Sis had painted Mom's toenails a bright pink, and I remember thinking: how come I had never noticed how pretty my mom's toes are?? And she is in her middle 80s. xoxo Karen

Let me give you a pedicure sometime so I can see those ugly toes, LOL! Why, I can make them pretty and make your feet and legs feel so good with a massage! All kidding aside, I'm sorry this happened to you and I'm just glad you weren't hurt any worse. The last time I remember falling was when I took my car to the wash several months ago. There was a hole in the drain next to my car and I didn't notice it and I fell right in it! It didn't hurt me bad but it shook me up. I got my jeans, boots, and fringed jacket all muddy. The jacket is suede and I was so concerned that I might not be able to get it clean. The tag said it could be washed in cold water. I did that and it got it all out, thankfully. It can also be ironed. This car wash I went to is not far down the road from where I live and I used to go there all the time. I've noticed that two of the stalls are roped off now but I've decided not to go there any more at least until they can be fixed. I tried to call the man who owns the car wash to tell him about it but I couldn't get him to answer. I don't believe in suing people but I thought to myself that he could get sued if anybody else had fallen and gotten hurt. Anyway, I smelled like gas all the way home, lol! Kathy.

When do u want to do it???lol. I have never had a pedicure. I know that would be nice. Everyone deserves to be papmered, i have been waiting all my life to be, lol. Glad u weren't hurt when u fell. U sure could have been. The owner is sure taking a good chance of getting sued w/conditions like that. My car is dirtier than it's been since i had it. Of course right now it's covered in snow even if it is under the carport.

I'm sure I told you along about the time I joined mylot that I used to be a nail technician and I did a lot of pedicures. They are very relaxing and they make your feet and legs feel so good. I hope you do get a chance to get one in the future. I bet you were sore after your fall, weren't you? I hope you're feeling much better today. Kathy.

U are a sweetie , Kathy. I have heard others talking about getting pedicures & how nice they were. I have been sore but my ugly toe doesn't hurt like it did. Got a big ugly bruise on my arm but it could have been so much worse & i'm just thankful i didn't break anything big. Have a great week.

On top of all my other good news we have snow the yazoo, most i have seen in a long time. t.j. said he'd never seen this much & he's 28 so it has been awhile. it may kill me but i'm going to have some snow cream out of it. Have u ever had snow cream?

How can "one little digit"....1/500th the size of our body...evoke soooooo MUCH miserable pain. The BIG toe----emits BIG, BIG PAIN! Socks hurt, slippers hurt...shoes hurt....and bedanged if that isn't the thing you will STUB again! How pray tell, did you fall...shud you NOT be seeing your Dr., in case you have hurt yourself elsewhere...and the BIG pain, in the BIG toe is overwhelming other injuries? Usually when I fall, I land on my most padded spot...my butt! So far, touch wood...only two falls this winter. Please take care...I'll bet you did this rushing around doing something? LUV & HUGZ

I know that's right. t.j. offered to carry me to er but they don't do anything for toes & other than brusing other places & landing on my old back that hurts all the time anyway i think in a few days i'll be o.k. Thanks for your concern. I don't rush around anymore, lol. I had gone in my room to get some clean clothes & i guess i got my foot hung in the bedspread.duh!
