this little piggy

Between rain, which it seems that is all we have had here for weeks, and heat, which seems to appear within minutes of the rain, causing steamy humidity, and now, my foot issues, I really havent been getting to walk much at all.
The foot is not getting any better.
I can no longer tell if its the plantar fascia, or if its ill fitting shoes, or ill fitted supports. or the fact that I try to walk daily carrying about 80 pounds more than I should be.
I am not going to make an appointment with the podiatrist. As I have decided those hard, unmoving custom orthotics.... the last pair of which they cut too thick right thru the center, leaving me with this feeling of something hard right across the ball of my foot......are just not what I need.
I am doing stretching using the frozen water bottle, warm epsom salt soaks, and using the prescription cream the doctor gave me.
Then I am going to try to find a good pair of gel inserts, something really supportive to the arch.
Next, if nothing else helps, I will try new shoes.
and last choice will be the doctor.
Only because I have been dealing with this for 3 years and I know what they are going to say.
Other than that....not much else to report.
Just keeping on trying and keeping on trying again.
