Yipes. I thought I wrote the title as “From ‘Big Feet’ to my feet.” Oh, well. The vague nature of THIS title has a sort of mysterious allure to it. Actually, I probably just screwed up.
Marketable skill? LOL. Probably. I’ll put it on my next job application.
I DO have lifts. They’re expensive, but luckily my father was in the military, so we had that sort of coverage. My feet and ankles are still sore by the end of the day, though. The weight placement across the sole in unnatural, you know? Almost all of the pressure falls on my big toe, or the bony ball right below it. Is this normal? I guess that happens because, when I step, my ankles are sort of collapsing inwards, naturally attempting, as they are, to roll when I walk. I guess it’s that tendancy to roll that makes them hurt.
I had a podiatrist tell me that, in his long and illustrious career, mine were the flattest he’d ever seen.
