    I have it too. "Flat feet". I ruined my feet at 16 yo when I completed a Walk for Hunger (16 miles) in cheap sneakers. Young and foolish. My feet have never been the same, although my podiatrist tells me that I was pre-disposed to this kind of thing and that some people's feet just end up flat even without the kind of stress I put on them that day.

    I am extremely fortunate that I have excellent health insurance so I have gotten great care and been able to have custom-made inserts for my shoes. $350 a pair and again VERY lucky that we can afford it with our health care savings account.

    And even with the excellent care they still ache and limit my activities at times, and I have a desk job. Can't imagine having a job that requires walking.

    You are in my prayers.


    Avoid the drama, vote Obama.
