The Feet Chronicles Strike Again

I put up an article yesterday titled The Feet Chronicles, but WordPress is struggling with getting my posts to work properly. Some of you may have seen it already, so I apologize for the repeat. I need these posts to reach as many as possible, at least until October 22nd. Read on to find out why.

But first, the story of the curse upon feet in my family!

You’d think the stories I told about injured feet before were enough, but no, fate has brought me more.

(Yes, those are my children’s size feet. And no, I can’t wear kids shoes because they come with glitter, bows and flashing lights.)

Those of you who have read my blog before, already know the Tale About Feet, when my husband had his accident in 2014.

Then there was last year, right after we moved out of state, our dog, Max broke his toe. A few days later, I fell and sprained my ankle.

Now, the feet chronicles continue.

After everything my husband went through with his accident, I hate to complain. My pain seems trivial in comparison, but my feet have been hurting for the better part of a year. There are times when they can’t even hold me up.

After all these months, I’ve recently gotten the diagnosis of Plantar Fasciitis. I’ve started the methods required to help the condition to heal, but nothing is working thus far. From what I understand, it can take a long time … or lead to surgery. Let’s pray the latter doesn’t happen.

At least being off my feet has pushed me into more computer work. I wecover9titlewas able to re-release my memoir anthology, Home Avenue. I entered my novel, Whit’s End, into the Kindle Scout campaign. I especially need votes for for this campaign.

UPDATE: This campaign has ended. Thank you to everyone who helped me out. The book has now been published, you can find it HERE.

I’m running out of places to find them, and deadline is October 22nd. I could use some more help with spreading the word through blog posts, or perhaps  re-blog my original post about the novel at this link, and/or share the Kindle Scout link on your facebook and/or twitter page. The link is below or click on the book cover.

Whit’s End on Kindle Scout.

Anything you can do to help spread the word would be of great help and much appreciated. These requests won’t last forever. There are only eight days left!

  1. I had that problem, Lori. What helped me were essential oils. I’ve used Young Living Essential Oils for many years. Lemongrass and a blend called R.C. were especially helpful in reducing pain. A drop or two on the soles of the feet morning and night, a drop or two in my shoes as needed. It helped enormously! 😉 xoxoM

    1. Margarita, I’m going to the health food store tomorrow for my vitamins, and I will definitely ask about this. I’m not sure what R.C. is, but I’ll see if they know there. Thank you for the tip. Hugs.

  2. I’m sorry to hear about your diagnosis, Lori. My father was diagnosed with this over a year ago and continues to have issues after spending a lot of money on orthotics, etc. That said, I have several coworkers with the same problem who’ve had success with treatments. Good luck!
