Glad to hear it. That it wasn't you I mean. So sorry to hear about the big toe and tooth and tongue.

Wow, you're not kidding. You have been blasted lately. So impressed you didn't go for a drink after your injuries, good on you!!

Keep us posted about the appt with the doc. Not sure what I can tell you about the big toe except to wear a stiff shoe for support and rest when it aches. A cup of nettle tea here and there will help with the broken bone (help heal) and salt water rinses for your tongue are helpful. Sore from top to bottom, sheesh.

Thinking of you, take care

thank you, hot baths have been suggested too, its funny that you mention stiff shoes, ive been wearing armored motorbike boots the past day.

No flex in the sole so cant bend it, they are a tight fit so that little piggy has no where to go and finaly they unzip all the way down so its easy to get in and out of, till i see the x-ray people and i know what they are going to say "you should have been here sooner" I didnt no it was broken for four days because it was bruised and bloody (opened a door over it barefoot)

Hopefully no lasting damage or my badminton is going to need to serious polishing up on!!!!!

Oh and the evil tooth problem i bought a gum shield, epic win to avoid emergency help no?

I saw the normal emergency dentist the next day, at 12am that would have been eeeeeeeeeexpensive!!

Oh my! I was standing outside a bar one night when the doors burst open and two burly bouncers came rushing out with some guy in between them and it happened so fast that I had no chance to move out of the way but the glass door went riding over my foot and it broke the second toe and left a huge gash.

Went for x-rays but there wasn't anything they could do. The entire top of my foot was bruised black and blue. I know what you are talking about - but the BIG TOE? Youch.

I suspect they won't be able to do anything for you unless it's crooked now or broken badly. They might do surgery but I think (I think) that they just leave things. Take an anti-inflammatory in the mean time to help with the swelling and pain.

You sound very intelligent in your responses in ways to help yourself. I am very impressed with the gum shield idea. If the tongue is very sore you might also try a mouthwash with hexidine in it.

Its got several holes in the side of it, they look like tiger stripes, im glad that over, i was worried a filling might fall out and get lodged in my tongue.

As for the big toe, its the most important toe. And its very easy to forget what you're doing, and do something REALLY stupid like flick your other shoe off using it and then collapse in pain screaming, quite literally without a leg to stand on!! 90% of your power and balance comes from that one, yes the foot wouldn't work very without the other 4, but neither would they.

"A broken big toe may need to be supported in a cast" - NHS website

Crap.

I think its just a fracture however.

my lifes in ruins and im so sad its hard to describe or admit, is there some secret formula for happiness?


Sometimes it's things going on in your life - sounds like that's happening to you? Or sometimes it's something inside of you - maybe some kind of chemical imbalance.

I take St. John's Wort - an herb noted for helping with mild to moderate depression. Doesn't help everyone but it helps me! Everything can be going well on the surface - and I get this wave of blue depression that is so thick it's hard to find my way thru it. Then I might realize - oh my god, I ran out of the Wort! I drop everything and go to the Health store. Of course it doesn't always cure it but it helps me!

Other things - before I get up or go to sleep I may lay there and think- what are some good things in my life? There are always some. I try to get out in the sunshine or just the daylight if sun isn't out. Garden - get your hands in the dirt. Call or see a close friend, walk, bike. We have a little lake close by. So may go and sit and watch the ducks.

Unfortunately for most of us - happiness is not a permanent state of mind. It is often just brief moments that you grab and hold as long as you can. More stress and chaos in the world - makes it harder.

Hope you get thru this as soon as you can. It will get better!

When you're going through any kind of depression it can seem impossible to resolve but there is hope and light at the end of the tunnel. Personal experiences have made me feel totally hopeless and lost and often thinking the worst. But I do agree that simple things can really help. Talk about your problems and your feelings. Find someone to share your words with, whether a friend or a family member or here on the forums or even Samaritans. Meditate. Find a new hobby. Rearrange your life completely to help you. Think about yourself and just focus on you for a while.The key for me was to keep busy, no matter what. When I didn't do that it was majorly destructive and hindered my progress. You can get through this! If I can you can.

so following up on my post - i have mouth cancer its confirmed.

Actually its given me a strange closure on life if it kills me. I dont want to live to 80 anyway, id rather not die before im 40 but im not too worried about it either.

In some way its helped with my depression, i dont fear death im just happy that i wont have to deal with the depression forever, thats really settling. Its relaxing.

Sorry to hear....there are several posts on ATS about baking soda curing cancer....you may want to read them or ask some of the holistic members here about it. Do you smoke or dip?

i stopped smoking tobacco and weed a few years ago, but i did smoke for abut 15 years so i guess i asked for it.

Though when i started i didnt know cancer was a real thing but i was young and stupid.

baking soda you say, i will do some reading.

my oncologist says its not too bad, we got to it earily, but it is aggressive, but hes given me 80%, so thats pretty good. but i could be that 20%.

Im good though, not bothered, stuff happens etc.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.


how do you deal with depression?

Depends on the day. Some days not as well as others.


You've been diagnosed with mouth cancer? Sucky. I'm sorry to hear that. I had cancer twice. Both were gotten with surgery. I have sjogrens and we have a much higher rate of depression and cancer than the general population. Usually lymphoma cancer and usually it strikes about age 58. That's not what I had the first two times but I'm expecting that to possibly kick in six years from now or so.

I hope the best for you. Keep us posted. Surgery? Chemo? Radiation? Cyberknife?

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

i dont know that cancer always causes depression.

I was depressed for a while a few years ago, since i got cancer i dont really care about it, i cant do much about it so why be worried about it?

real depression is somthing you CAN do somthing about but you dont know how, you feel powerless and thats what gets you. Cancer bums you out but you cant do anything, so why bother fretting about it.

My mother has M.S and gets deeply depressed some days, so I bang couple of films on and she starts to stop thinking and starts to relax.





Good advice. That's actually what kickstarted me to at least switching the focus. It distracted me and also helped me sleep. I watched loads of movies to get my mid off my troubles.

Now I am slowly weaning off efexor. It didn't really help much. I'm feeling better now. Not great but better.
