I'm happy I bought my first medjool dates. Why didn't you people TELL me how good they were??

I know I'd like a redo of my 20's. It seems so wrong how those tumultuous years of responsibility, and major decisions shape the rest of your life..

I have pretty much constant foot pains and doctors have only been pains and no help. I got out of bed and used a panty to wrap my foot so it was pulled towards my ankle and wouldn't point. Those kind of splints are sold for plantar fascitis, which I don't have. I never have pain in the heel or bottom of my feet, only the metatarsil bones and the tendon that runs alongside, but that splint helped tremendously

I swear that sounds like an undiagnosed fracture. I'm no doctor, so just casting a net here. Is it both feet?

I've been to a podiatrist about 15 years ago who took xrays, and made hard plastic orthodics which killed me. His statement was that fixing one problem would make another one worse.
About 4 years ago I tore the tendon in my ankle. I traveled about an hour to see a specialist, where I waited 3 hours after my appt time to see her. I had more xrays, I think even a cat scan. They fitted me with a boot, and when I stood up I collasped in pain because when my foot is flat my ankle bows out, and vice versa. Again recommended orthodics which I declined when I saw how they fitted me. I found I could cut scrap rubber to fit under my regular shoe insoles to support the outside of my foot, and that works fine
A big problem is that my feet are different. The left is a regular width 7.5, the right a wide 7. The right is also very rigid foot, needing a cushioning shoe and falls badly to the outside, the left could use more arch support.
Anyway, I'm saying all this just in case someone can identify.
I've seen orthopedics, podiatrists--none of any help, but a lot of time and cost. My homemade insoles are fine, although now I need a new pair of shoes. I'm going to make a pair using regular silicone--caulking silicone--I found on the sit instructables.com

What did surprise me was how binding my foot so it couldn't strecht out at night helped so much! This is not a constant problem, but when it flares up it even pains me at night. The binding relieved that pain. I always do stretchs for that every day, but not always enougyh.

anyway, the biggest help was finding out how defiient I was in D. I had to ask for the test. I'd assumed it was part of the normal bloodwork. It is not. Even after taking regular D, tapering off from 10000 to 4000 a day I'm still (last tested in Oct) at 30. I'd been sure to always spend some time in sun daily, not use soap on arms or legs, and when tested at 12 was in August and had been taking Deva with 400mg of D2
Anyway, the D did help

@silva , I have heard good things about magnesium supplementation helping with toes ballerina pointing at night, especially in people who take calcium supplements.

Feet are so necessary and we take them for granted!

What kind of shoes do you wear, and do you ever walk in the sand barefoot, what happens if you do?

I suppose we thought you knew! But while we're on the subject...

If you think they're good by themselves, wait until you try them with unsalted peanuts or sunflower kernels or cashews. Or any unsalted nut. Or rolled oats. Raisins are good with all of these, but dates are UNREAL. My advice is not to have too much of all these in the house at one time or you'll find yourself in the grip of a feeding frenzy. I speak from experience...

I love to snack on pumpkin seeds (with shell on and lightly salted/roasted) and chopped dates, and this is a staple for long bike rides or hikes. It is light weight to carry and provides both energy and sustaining fats. The combination of sweet and salty is very satisfying, and will leave me full for hours!

I'm happy that I was doing Tai Chi out behind my house Sunday morning a bit before dawn, and the skunk who scuttled by didn't spray me. Actually, the skunks around here seem to be pretty good about avoiding people and not blasting someone, so long as they don't get surprised/startled.

It was kind of hard to concentrate on finishing the Form while I was also turning my head this way and that to watch if the skunk appeared again, though. S/he was quiet, but faster than I usually see them moving.

Tai Chi sounds perfect for me! @Tom --do you practice the usual forms? Did you learn from another or self taught?

Back in 2011, a gym I belong to started a class. It turned out to be about 45-50 minutes of breathing exercises and slow stretching, and only about 10-15 minutes of Tai Chi. Maybe the teacher had the right idea, but it just didn't hold my interest; at least some of the rest of the class felt the same way, and after about a year it was cancelled. I got a book out of the library and learned the rest of the Yang style 24 form (one of the most commonly-practiced forms) from that- but it took me a long time because without a class I had to motivate myself to do it. My form is probably not good, but it stills my mind- and I think it will help my balance, which has never been great.

I think the teacher was good, though. One time, after our breathing exercises, she had us stand in a circle with our hands about 2" apart, palms facing each other, so we could feel each others' chi.... and I swear I actually felt something. I was somewhat familiar with the notion of chi (or "ki", as the Japanese call it), and knew that Acupuncture, Aikido, Tai Chi, Shiatsu, and Reiki all made use of it- but had never felt it.
