Kate Miller-Heidke lutou contra uma grave infeção no pé.

Kate Miller-Heidke, uma das concorrentes do Festival da Eurovisão 2019, que este ano irá acontecer em Tel Aviv, usou a sua conta de Instagram para descrever momentos complicados a nível de saúde por que passou há pouco tempo.

Em declarações à imprensa, Kate afirmou que tudo se deveu a uma séria lesão que teve no pé por causa… dos saltos altos. Conforme avança à BBC, o problema surgiu depois da cantora ter usado uns “estúpidos stilettos” [sapatos altos de salto agulha] para filmar a apresentação da Austrália para a Eurovisão.

Numa publicação que fez na sua conta de Instagram acerca do sucedido, a concorrente australiana afirmou.

“Não entrem em pânico! Isto foi há algumas semanas. Regressei da Europa com uma infeção muito grave que podia ter acabado em morte. Tudo por causa de uma bolha. Toda a gente sabe que usar saltos altos pode matar – mas eu nunca levei isso a sério”, começa por referir.

A cantora descreve que os primeiros dias no hospital foram bastante complicados, mas que com o apoio da família conseguiu superar o internamento.

Por fim, a artista confirmou o diagnóstico: tudo aconteceu por causa de uma bolha que infetou gerando uma infeção bacteriana na pele.

DON’T PANIC! This was a few weeks ago. I came back from Europe with a very serious infection which can end in amputation or even death. All from a blister. Anyone who has worn them knows high heels can can kill – but I never took it literally. I was stuck in this bed for the best part of a week. When I realised how serious it was I was pretty panicked and frankly, upset. The last few months have been a whirlwind of activity. Every day was chockas with some kind of preparation. I was sprinting towards May, getting my ‘pop Olympics’ brain on, and utterly unprepared to have all my plans derailed by such unexpectedly shitty luck. The first couple of days in hospital passed in a blur of needles, pain killers, and Netflix and tears (not a euphemism). But then this strange sense of calm settled over me. I gave up trying to control everything. I had no choice. I just pressed ‘pause’. If this were a movie, cue character-development montage over ‪Ball Park Music‬’s “Surrender”. Keir and Ernie came to visit me every day. Keir was on single parent duties. Again. I caught the look of envy on his face when they arrived to see me snuggled up watching Ru Paul’s Drag Race, in the middle of the day, in bed, shamelessly. This soon gave way to his usual legendary amount of empathy (he told me to write that). I’m mobile again now. In sneakers. The doctor ordered me to go to a ‘funky’ orthopaedic shoe store. You better believe I was pretty skeptical about that. Actually that’s a post for another day. But the sense of calm has persisted. Occasionally I’ll be visited by that familiar needy voice whispering ‘Why not have a quick look at the YouTube comments under your song?’ Now my new friend, the calm one, steps in and says ‘Uh, no Kate. Just, don’t.’ I’ve been reading ‘Radical Acceptance’ by Tara Brach and she makes a very compelling case for being forced to press pause. And sometimes the only thing that will make you do it is a minor disaster.  In heels. PS The diagnosis was cellulitis from an infected blister. It’s the same disease Hilary Swank got while training for Million-Dollar baby so it’s definitely the most glamorous foot infection going around. #eurovision
