I’ve been getting my butt kicked at work lately, but we finally got the big project out. Go us!
I took my daughter ice skating tonight. I tried to join her on the ice but did not last long. The problem is that it’s just too painful for me to continue. Ice skates need to be tight to have the control and support to balance on those narrow blades. I’ve dealt with overtight shoes/boots before. I know what that feels like. This isn’t that. It’s my arches. Plantar fasciitis. Within very few minutes it’s like someone playing a blowtorch across the bottom of my feet. I’ve got my own skates rather than the rentals. I’ve tried a spare pair of orthotic insoles in them. Those didn’t really help. I’ tried those gel cushion insoles. I think they made matters worse. I need to figure something out if I’m going to continue–and I want to continue.
I’ve been told that, due to my diabetes, I should see a podiatrist regularly. Maybe he can help resolve this issue other than via the ever-popular “don’t do that.”
