Boring Post for Saturday
It is Saturday. This is the day I save for my most boring posts. If you want to play along, do.
I suffer from insertional achilles tendonitis. It is like plantar fascitis for the back of the foot at the heel. I will probably get visitors looking for cures for those things. Move on, move on, I say to you foot achers. I have no cure for you here.
My foot doctor who has a name something like Humphrey Bogart so I call him Dr. Bogart has cut me loose and told me that I don't need to come back. He has no cure for me. Time, it will take time.
In the meantime, while I take time I can do this.--
I can wear shoes with an elevated heel. These are Skechers and the heel is high enough to help.
And I sleep with my leg braced at night. It is awkward and strange to sleep in a brace, but when I don't and I take that first step in the morning it feels like somebody pounded on my foot all night with a hammer. Call me slow if you will, but most nights I remember to put on the brace to avoid the pain in the morning.
But the best part of this problem has been these sandals. I become "Creed" and sing wild songs from the 60s and 70s when I wear these sandals. So it isn't all bad, this insertional achilles tendonitis. Even if it doesn't seem to be getting better yet. It has side effects that are interesting.
