Hello, and Happy Monday

I got my orthotics today. I popped them right in and started walking around and the sensation was...interesting. I expected them to be hard molded plastic or something, but actually they're just a rigid foam. Cushiony, yet firm.

I'm going to have to get used to them. My arches feel as though I'm walking on large stones. I don't think I've ever had so much arch support in my life. The good news is that my right foot, the original problem foot with the severe heel pain, has healed nearly completely. This didn't happen just today, but over the past few days. I'm now only bothered when I walk down steep stairs and I still have some pain after sleeping. The bad news is that my left foot has gotten in on the action and has been hurting in the arch. This has also been the last few days. I think it just needs to get used to having arch support for once it its life.
