Foot Frustration, Anger and Forgiving

I have been extremely frustrated since this foot mess started back in April – it has brought back a lot of really bad memories that I thought I had somehow managed to bury.  I ended up taking my bandages off on Sunday because my foot was so dry.  I have spent more time crying than not ever since then.  I didn’t want to post the picture here because it is gross, but if you really want to see it, then you can click here.  Although I have been thru a lot worse, going thru this has been really hard and frustrating.
