    It's all good. Inside America everyone from your part of the world is an Aussie (kidding but I couldn't resist)

    • According to my mother, the podiatrist says I'll go back to wearing "normal" shoes with proper support once my feet start hurting. I have feet like my grandmother and my father, so I'd best just PLAN on having foot surgery someday.

      ...

      How much you want to bet Grandma wore shoes all her life? My feet don't hurt when I wear 5 Fingers. They kill me by the end of the day when I wear regular shoes, especially with the custom-made properly-fitted insoles. I feel off-balance in tennies. I think I'll stick to my flexible flats, thanks.
      Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

      If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

      • I went to the grocery store today, for this week's food. I overhear the kid in front of me asking his mom for a candy bar. Mom says no, and I silently cheer mom on, until I hear "now put your Lunchable on the thing."
        Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

          My stepdad had pain in his back a couple of years ago. Two "doctors" (podiatrists, I guess?) told him that one leg was slightly longer than the other, and that he'd need to wear a support sole. He did that and the pain only got worse. He went to someone specialized in alternative medicine, and that guy told him:
          "Why the h** did they tell you you need soles?! Your pelvis isn't aligned, you just need physicial therapy and then you'll be fine. You would've had to wear the sole your entire lifee and it wouldn't have helped!"

          Stepdad's rather sceptical of alternative medicine, but his back pain (and the support soles, LOL) are gone!

            I have a convention next weekend, which means hours of walking. I plan to go on my socks... I'm not going to torture my back and feet with shoes just because they look cute....
            My story, My thought....

            It's all about trying to stay healthy!!!!

              My parents were told long ago that I needed special shoes because one leg was shorter than the other. My mother responded with "She plays soccer just fine, why does she need special shoes?" The doc replied with "well, you could let her run around barefoot, that might help level things out. I really don't think it will though."
              25 years later, I'm still running around barefoot with no issues until I wear foot coffins.

                *facepalm* Doh! If running around barefoot might make it a little better, then why not suggest trying that first? If your parents hadn't said that and just listened to the doc, you would've ran around on special shoes for years before discovering barefoot walking/running/hiking!

                I'm supposed to have a sole as well, but I never liked wearing them, and they barely fit into any shoes without folding themselves or something funky. It was annoying as hell. -_-'

                  We went to Las Vegas. I wore VFFs and Merrell's minimalist Mary Janes the entire time...while pushing Mom's wheelchair since she had foot surgery. Granted, that's a lot of walking on a hard flat surface, so my feet did hurt a bit, but guess who was still hurting the least out of 6 women? And who got crap for not wearing "cute shoes" when we all dressed up for dinner, because sometimes you just need to suffer a bit to look good?!?

                  • I finally had a moment. This weekend I went to my husband's family reunion. It was a bunch of old people and their various diseases and CW beliefs. My husband's aunt brought a white grocery store Italian bread loaf and Olivio fake butter spread. She sat there and was raving over how good that sh*t was for you. She admired my homemade au gratin potatoes (real, milk, butter, cheese and gluten free) and asked how I got them to look so good and creamy. When I told her it was all the butter, cheese and milk she commented "that's why" and walked away with out any and went back to her bread and spread. I heard so many of them talking about their ailments and what they could not eat yet they stuffed their mouths with chips and crap. I wanted to get on the table, scream and kick the fake sh*tty butter and all the rest of the "health" food off it.

                    Later this same aunt was talking to a couple other people who I was telling about the goats we raise (we had a couple kid goats there for the kids to pet). She went into a rant about how her brother (my father in law) raises GRASS FED, ORGANIC beef "even though he is not supposed to eat that terrible meat". Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Oh no we would not want him to eat this healthy meat but why don't we go over and hand him a slice of white bread and fake butter, that will make him better.

                    Oh on and on it went. I made these amazing cheesecake brownies that were grain free, had coconut oil, coconut sugar, real eggs from my pastured hens, etc. People ooh and awwed over them until they found out what was in them then they looked scared to eat them. But they flocked over for grocery store cake.

                    We do not even eat a perfect diet but oh my goodness I thought I was going to have seizures. I think I like staying in my nice little bubble at home. At least I don't have fantasies about kicking margarine into some old lady's face at home

                          Chemical food bombs are the norm, and real food is the enemy. The world is crazy.

                            Totally. I've looked at maps. They are like within inches of each other. In other map-based news apparently Alaska is floating by Hawaii down in the left hand corner somewhere.

                                i want to eat at your house. Tho' your story did remind me of the time my vegetarian friend had made a lasagna dinner (years ago) and as I ranted and raved how I hated tofu, she smugly informed me that hers had no meat, just tofu. It would be curious if you didn't tell them what is in your food and only asked if they are allergic to anything as you hand them a delish spoonful, I wonder what would happen?
