Yeah, that’s right. Cashews. They’re like the nutty version of crack (Note: I have no idea what crack’s like as I haven’t and will never try it, I just assume it’s like having a cashew addiction but a shit ton worse). You innocently take a container with some cashews in it to work as a healthy snack (like… 5 a day), and next thing you know you seem to have induced some form of dependence on them.
I know everyone keeps going on about how 2016 was the devil or whatever, but I tend to agree with @MsTexas1967 in that “it is becoming increasingly obvious that David Bowie has established a better alternate universe and is populating it selectively one-by-one”. Yeah, a lot of really inspirational and talented people carked it and yeah, that’s really sad, but it’s just like in 2014 when everyone was convinced that air travel was crazy dangerous because there were heaps of crashes that year. Not true! In terms of crashes, 2014 was had the lowest number of crashes in more than 80 years. It had a fairly high death toll, but that is not unusual or scarily high in comparison to other years. It was just the fact that the media focused on it, and it made it seem like there were more air disasters than normal (fact: there were actually less than earlier years). The below chart shows commercial aviation deaths per year, worldwide, and is taken from CNN, to put it in perspective for you.
After my last Dear Diary, I had a friend ask if I was seeing a physio for my knee. I explained to her that I’ve recently become entirely disheartened with physios & podiatrists, so no, I wasn’t seeing one for this. After seeing them for a lifetime for all sorts of things, this recent bout of knee issues has seen me burn through 3 physios and a hell of a lot of money without any real results (I stuck each one out for long enough, I promise!). I had 3-4 fat pad impingement in the last year, and the advice I was getting was all about treatment, as opposed to how to avoid it happening in the first place. It totally screwed up my running (try running with a fat pad injury – it’s agony!), I stopped horse riding and packed on a bit of weight from not physically being able to do the activities that took up the majority of my fitness schedule, and it all really got me down.So when this happened, I decided to try and tackle the imaging side of things first, which I did. But my mate who I mentioned earlier has convinced me to give physios/podiatrists another go.
So when this new issue occurred I decided to try and tackle the imaging side of things first, which I did. But my mate who I mentioned earlier has convinced me to give physios/podiatrists another try, and has recommended one to me that a running friend of hers has had great success with. It’s with Matt Bull at Up & Running Podiatry in Ripponlea tomorrow, so I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes!
