Ever heard of plantar fascitis? Well, I got it. Found out that the cool shoes I'd been wearing to work (for over a year) weren't 'proper' and caused my heels to be very sore. Had to throw those pups away.
After many trips to the pod doc and a new pair of supportive shoes with padded inserts, I'm well on my way to healing. I probably won't be wearing flipflops this summer, but I will be going for pedicure very soon. And I bought one of those car-wash-for-your-feet that goes in the shower. Even though that wasn't the cause of my problem, I need to be taking better care of my feet.
Sure, my heels still get sore but at least I don't hobble around and take advil non-stop.
