Surprise! I have toes!
I have been attending Krav Maga consistently and something happened tonight.
You know that “Soldier Crawl”? I had modified it using my forearms and knees. Today, I was crawling, and quite naturally, my toes took over for my knees. It felt natural, and surprised me. It only happened twice, but it happened. I did the “soldier’s crawl” as it was supposed to be done, for a few moments.
I tell myself every day that if I keep moving, my range of motion will come back. I know it will never be what it was before, but there is potential and now realistic hope my range will improve.
I had another revelation: My toes are not useless. They’re just fused and different, but they are not lost.
I’m encouraged, exhausted and sore. The good kind of sore.
