Okay, so back to the shoes, or lacktherof. I admit I do need to update my collection. I LOVE shoes, and bags, and most accessories which one cannot "outgrow" (if ya know what I mean). But I have this foot issue - remember? I have arthritis in the joint where my big toe meets the foot. Over the last several months I have seen a sports med doc, a physical therapist, I've had 6 injections of synovial fluid, taken 1500 mg glucosamine daily, had new orthotics made and even bought the ugliest shoes on the planet - all in an effort to prevent the arthritis from getting worse. The amazing thing is that it all really helped. The day we were flying back to London Brian asked me how my foot was feeling and I told him it was never better ... until we landed and a few hours later that old familiar ache was back. Unfortunately it hasn't stopped since we've been here. I'm guessing it's the cool and damp climate. Ugh. So you see I have a dilemma. It's hard to find shoes that are comfortable and that can also be good/supportive for my old, arthritic foot. Any ideas??
Lastly, I want to say that it really is a blessing that I did not find any shoes to buy because instead I did something with that money that is SO much more important than expanding my wardrobe. You can read all about it here.
