New Year

Wednesday, January 17, 2018

I'm trying yet again to start over for the umteenth time! My weight just slowly creeps up and I keep vowing to do better yet it doesn't happen.

Last year, I was running from home to first during a softball game and thought something had popped in my foot. I was unable to walk for a couple days but was diagnosed with Plantar Fasciitis. I have tried ultrasound therapy, stretching exercises, massage and so many other things but it's still not healed. I am bound to wearing tennis shoes with custom-made inserts from my podiatrist. When I think I'm feeling a little better and try to wear dress shoes (to work), I'm back to where I was. It's sad but I'm going to have to live with it.

My mother-in-law has Alzheimer's and I've really been busy dealing with her. It's very challenging as well as sad. Anyone who has ever dealt with someone with this awful disease knows exactly what I'm talking about. Those of you who don't....I pray that you never have to. It's a horrible disease that affects everyone who knows the patient.

I hope that everyone is doing well!

    Hello, my friend. It's a bummer with the Plantar Fascitis...DH had that for such a long time. He was in so much pain! He finally went to a doctor they call 'the foot whisperer'. He told DH to get an old phone book and a piece of wood and make a ramp then he had him stretch his leg out on this ramp several times a day. In a few months, he was MUCH better. You might google stretches for Plantar Fascitis..I bet it will help.

    Also sooo very sad about your MIL. My little momma had dementia and it was so very sad. She was a brilliant person with a really high I.Q. It's my theory that really brilliant people seem to be the ones that get this horrible's almost like they burn out their brain cells. Very, very sad.

    Never give up on yourself can do anything you put your mind to...anything! emoticon
