Five things Friday

  1. I cannot stand Cricket.  I find it painfully boring.
  2. My mom will be sad to read that I’m still having problems with my feet.  The tendons on the soles of my feet – particularly the one linking my big toes and my heels – occasionally experience a momentary white hot pain that makes me immediately stop walking.  It’s not a daily problem but it’s more and more regular – especially if I walk a lot.  I have a new appreciation for my feet.  If I have the same foot problem that Mom does it’s another chronic condition called plantar fasciitis and is characterised by inflammation of the feet.  OUCH!  At the moment I treat my feet by doing a lot of stretching, and massage with calendula oil.  It helps but doesn’t prevent more pain.
  3. I was delighted that my sister sent me a link to inspire my blog-writing.  More details of that in the days to come…
  4. I love cooking and not just cookies.  I make a great risotto, baked salmon, chilli con carne, chicken stroganoff, curry, etc.  It’s another way to be creative.  I also use cooking to express my love for someone.
  5. I’ve temporarily given up on the Endometriosis Tea.  While I find it terribly tasty, I also find myself wondering if it will counter-indicate with my birth control pills.  Does anyone want my leftover ingredients to give it a go?

  1. Plantar Fascitis is debilitating for sure. BUT, I’ve found something that helps most of the time. Not always, but it’s an improvement.

    Powerstep Pinnacle Orthotic Inserts, I also use the arch supports as my ankles turn in which is why I have Plantar Facitis in the first place. My feet were not supported, and I have small ankles, so they couldn’t take the pressure either.

    Try them! They are ~$25 and last 6 months or more.

  2. Thanks very much for the advice. Like you, I think my ankles turn in and are small. I invested in a pair of Birkenstocks and I have spent most of my summer so far in them. I find it odd that they don’t help as much as I’d hoped. The only thing that really helps is to rest my feet but I don’t always get the chance to sit at work. Luckily I’m on holiday now so I don’t have a lot of need to stay on my feet.
