Ugh!...Tired of it!

..What am I tired of?
I am so tired of not being able to go for a walk every day. I have posted blogs about this in the past..About getting blisters on my feet. I have tried several different shoes, but it all ends up the same..Extremely sore feet with blisters..mainly the part under the toes, and tonight the shoe rubbed a spot on my ankle. I'm not talking about long walks, either...I went for two walks, one this morning and one this evening, for twenty minutes each.
Just so discouraged..And I don't have the money to go get fitted for some expensive ones, either.

Okay, vent over. I do feel better...

Wish my feet did!

    With your permission, I'll post your blog on a couple teams, Natural Remedies and The Step Diet, to see how others overcame this problem. I had something similar but does NOT sound like to your same degree; I have wide feet and I solved it by buying men's tennis shoes. I usually wear a 9, but for some reason Nike's NEVER fit comfortably, so it's usually larger than 9 in Nike, and I am more happy with New Balance wides. However, with any brand, if I buy men's in size 7 or 7.5, sometimes wide and sometmes regular, they fit sooooooooo good.

    The last blister I had was on the bottom of my toe that is next to my pinky. I don't get foot blisters other than that. And on the opposite foot I have plantars fasciitus. So I do sympathize with your issue of being able to walk!

    it wouldn't be related to the diabetes would it? My hubby's mother has type 2 diabetes and her feet give her a terrible time...I wonder if it's that your feet are more sensitive because of your diabetes?

    Bummer. I've started buying running shoes a size bigger than I normally wear. They give my tootsies room. You might want to try that next time.
