One Thing I’ve Learned From Neuropathy…

…is to take care of my feet. On my trip last week I inserted gel insoles into my fisherman sandals and decided to go bare-footed to try and stay cool. This only worked until the temperature got hot and my feet started swelling and burning up. 

I ended up going to my room and soaking my feet in cold water. Once I cooled my feet down, I figured I’d remove the gel insoles to allow for the swelling. Before you knew it … I was feeling refreshed and good for a couple more hours of sightseeing. 

By switching things up on my feet the pressure points vary which gives parts of my feet a break to carry on.
