I had to go back to the nurse I saw the other day today.  They gave me another voucher to stay in a hotel for another night.  They told me my feet need to heal.  The skin is damaged from all the sweating from wearing boots all the time.  They are also really itchy.

It is nice to have a bed and all that.  But I only have until tomorrow morning here and my feet aren't better.  So I will have to be more careful about them.  I will need to make sure that I am changing my socks as often as I can.  I admit that part of it had been laziness.  It just isn't easy to pull off all the layers that I wear when it is cold.  I stopped wearing tights when I was sleeping because they kept digging into my toes.  I can't find seamless tights.  I am not sure that they make them.  They make them in panty hose, but not tights.

They are still a little red, but they look much better than they did two days ago.  The skin looks more or less normal, but they are very dry.  I soaked them three times today.  They don't smell anymore!!  That is something.

I also washed out my bras too.  I find it so freeing to not have to wear a bra for a few days.  I am a little too curvy to get away without wearing one out in public.

It will be warm enough to sleep most of this week.  The only night that may be hard is Wednesday.  But some nights are supposed to be in the forties.  I may be able to sleep in just socks.  Which will help with my feet.  I am going to have to start wearing my sneakers during the day, and put on my boots only on really cold days and to sleep in.  That should help with the sweating.

It is strange, because I never had sweaty feet before except on really hot summer days.  So I don't know why I am having this problem now.

The hotel I am in isn't that nice, but it is free, so I shouldn't complain.  I looked it up online and it is very inexpensive, so I guess that is why they have vouchers for it.  But one would think that the state would have some kind of standards of being sanitary.  I suppose the reason that they don't have to update them is that they get filled up anyway.  It seems like I am not the only person in financial need here.

I took a very long nap this afternoon so now I can't sleep and I need to.  I don't want to start out tomorrow being tired.  I need to sleep soundly when I have the chance.

Oh, they also gave me the name of dentist that will clean my teeth.  I have missed that.  I really need to get a good cleaning since I have not had one in quite a while.  I think I have a cavity too.  I have tried very hard to keep my teeth clean and brush often.  But I have not eaten well in about a year and I think that may have some effect.

Well I am going to try and sleep for the rest of the night.  I need to soak my feet at least one more time before I go.


  1. I am very happy you had them looked at. Wish I could do more.

  2. Mr. Deekaman - you did plenty. The nurse told me that had I not gotten them looked at and into a hotel for a few days for them to heal, I would have had permanent damage to tissue on the bottom of my foot and to two toes. So thank you for helping me.
