I’m about to say something gross. Really gross. In fact, it’s kind of embarrassing. Gosh where do I begin? How do I say it? You know what, I’ll just come out with it. I’m struggling with toenail fungus. How humiliating is that! I haven’t told anyone, but at the same time I just needed to get it off my chest. That’s why this blog is so useful. I can just expel all my thoughts and free myself from dwelling on the same thought over and over again. Now that it’s out in the open, I’m curious if anyone else is battling with toenail fungus. How do you even get toenail fungus? That’s what I want to know! I’m a clean person and shower at least twice a day. Plus, I wear a new pair of socks each day. Some of my friends think that is extreme, but clearly I haven’t been extreme enough if I’m walking around with fungus on my feet. Even just writing about it I can feel the taste of bile creep its way back into my mouth.
Last night I stayed up for four hours doing research on the internet so I could get to the bottom of this toenail mystery. I still can’t figure out the cause. The only thing that kind of makes sense is that people prone to psoriasis can get nail fungus. I struggle with psoriasis and eczema, and have for a long time, but never has it affected my toenails! I thought I’d also do some research on home remedies to clear up the fungus. The other night I went to sleep with lemon juice on my toes. It did absolutely nothing other than stink out my room and slightly stain my nails to a disgusting yellow.
I’m at a total loss with this and would love to hear some of your experiences. In the meantime, I have found an appointment with the best foot specialist in Cheltenham. During my quick phone consultation they assured me that they could help resolve my problem. I really hope so!
