Take Your Time With New Shoes

New ShoesNever walk around in new shoes all day long. Doing so can cause blisters and blisters can lead to dangerous infections in a very short period of time. Instead, slowly break in new footwear by wearing them on occasions where you will be sitting more often than standing, such as to a movie or to church. Take an extra comfortable pair with you just in case. If you have peripheral neuropathy, talk to your podiatrist about whether or not you're a candidate for custom molded shoes.

I have spent the past three days dealing with an evil stomach bug. Gastro issues, bloodsugar issues and a headache for the ages - along with a low grade fever - left me in bed trying (and mostly failing) to rest. I'm back at work today after two sick days, but still on slo-mo. Weird bloodsugars are always my "getting sick" miner's canary. Everyone knows what a miner's canary is, right? Back in the day, miners would keep a caged bird (often a canary) with them in the mine....
