Today, my feet really hurt. I’ve been wearing a new pair of shoes for the past couple of days. Consequently, I developed a blister on my right foot.
Several years ago, I saw a podiatrist for a consultation; he recommended custom orthotics. Since this was ten years ago, I really need to be fitted for a new pair. I currently weigh substantially more than I previously did.
Chronic illnesses have certainly affected my feet, as well as the rest of my body. Due to my altered immune system, I’ve periodically struggled with fungal infections in my toenails.
This isn’t life-altering by any means, but it’s one more consequence of living with multiple chronic illnesses. It’s really not easy to watch your body visible change as a result of chronic illness, as well as the medications that need to be taken on a long-term basis.
