In my case, I have been so depressed about my condition, that getting online with these folks to not only get useful info about PF, but also just talk about something else other than our diseases has been very helpful in keeping things in perspective. I know this is the case for other people who also feel discouraged many a time. Nonetheless, your point has been well taken.
Thank you for the cloudwalkers info. I will check it out cause I tried the SAS shoes today, and my orthotics just did not fit in those shoes. Hunting for stupid, ugly shoes is one thing, but when not even those shoes fit me, it makes me wanna create my own shoe company, Pookieshoe.com LOL. Wish me luck!
