Send, you always read my mind. I was just now looking at that very same thing on amazon.

Great minds think alike.

Today, I found some special metatarsal pads on Amazon. Support designed to help pain relief.

Those boots are extremely uncomfortable Gershun. Even painful. I know from personal experience. I wore mine once. Confusing, isn't it? How to comply so you will get better, but how to get better without the hassel.

Since I am not an expert, not a doctor, I could not suggest you did not get the boot. Maybe that is why your ER doctor was so no-committal giving you instructions. Maybe the doc knew most people won't wear the boot.


I think you can wear them when you need to go outside.
Do you have some soft specialty socks to wear under the boot?
Whatever works for you this time G.

Edit: Yeah, not too expensive.
Shopping is a natural form of pain relief through distraction.

Sorry to hear Send.

I had a frustration bawl today cause of my foot. The fracture boot is so uncomfortable. I actually found some slippers that have better arch support and is helping my foot feel more comfortable. So while I'm at home I'll wear them with the crutches. I'll save the fracture boot for when my patience is higher.

Hope you feel better Send.

hug, margaret! the wisdom isn’t about me. the wisdom is for all of us. these little quotes are super useful and wise :).

some of them funny, some of them deep. i even read some of them to my elderly LOs, who enjoy them too.

my favorite so far:

Dear dear BOJ, you never told us about your month of problems, but from the sound of your ‘wisdom’ it was dreadful. I hope that the wisdom you learned is now in your heart and your head, and will protect you against whatever comes in future. Love, Margaret

All the best, Luta. I'm glad you finally have some time to look after yourself. I understand about POA duties being all consuming. Hopefully they will be reduced soon. Wishing you surgery soon and a good outcome and rest.
