My by now (in)famous suggestion

Posted by Dayna on 3/08/99 at 00:00 (005348)

Anyone who tells you that it's all in your head, or that you should stop whining and just get on with it, or that sometimes their feet hurt too should be told to try the following.

1) find a large roofing nail
2) pound it into your heel from the bottom, and leave a bit out.
3) stomp around on this for a few days
4) now, tell me again how I should just get over it

I know none of us would wish this on our worst enemy, but sometimes that's what it takes to get through to these people, our pain is just as real as anyone elses. At the very least, thinking about this gives me a chuckle, and lord only knows people with PF need all the laughter we can get.

What a great way to describe the pain to all of those non-believers...Although I think it's even worse than that! But if you don't mind, I think I'll throw that out to the next person who tells me to get over it. Sheri
