Living in a Fascitis State

I don’t know whether to rant-or
to cry about my fascitis o’ plantar
Though fascitis sounds like a dictator state
It’s nothing more than my arch is too straight
First time anything on me was considered too flat
But there it is, my feets is all that
The good news is I can still exercise
The bad news is I can still exercise
Plus — I gotta wear a strap-on (splint) to bed
(Oh, get that filthy thought outta yer head!)

Hey Sue,
Sorry about your plantar fascitis. I’ve had it bad in both feet. As you write, the good news is you can still exercise. I took that to heart, and gutted it out.
A few years ago I did get orthodics (sp?), and they made a huge difference. Don’t know if that will help you – I never did the strap – but after a few months of wearing them I changed shoes and never used them again. Now, about 4 years later (knock wood) it’s yet to come back.
Good luck, and I hope we’ll see you soon!
