Good night!

Saturday, November 10, 2012

So just a quick blog. Worked my first 8 hour day today (8am-5pm) and tomorrow from 6am to 3 pm. Came home and laid on the bed in tears, really, because my feet hurt and ached so bad. Not sure what the answer is to make it better other than just buck up and deal with it and hope that I either get a better, non retail, job or that I get use to it quickly! Night night spark people!!

    I promise your feet will feel better after a week or so more. Sorry it hurts so bad though right now.

    "Tricks" for achy feet: 1-good, supportive shoes. 2-thick, absorbent socks 3-one of the vibrating foot massagers feels good at the end of the day (this time of the year they are easy to find and not too pricey) 4-one of the water bath type foot massagers. You can use hot or cold water. They can be pricey new, but can also be found second-hand, run some bleach water in to disinfect and clean it. Don't use any bubbling products, but non-bubbling soothing foot soaks will work. 5-roll your foot on a tennis ball, it helps massage the aches 6-memory foam slippers-they cushion your poor tootsies.

Any of these things can help, the most important is the shoes. Oh, almost forgot! They make cushioning insoles that may help, too.

If you aren't already watching your salt and caffeine, you may want to start. They can make you retain fluid and that won't help your feet at all.

Hope you feel better soon!
