They are also important for low arches. I have a history of bilateral plantar fasciitis, with high arches. It's aggravated by walking on uneven ground, climbing ladders, and other activities that increase weight bearing through the arch. Severe pain for a year, until I had an orthotic friend make some custom orthotics for me, and wore a night splint. I would wear the splint on the R foot for the first half of the night, and switch it over to the L foot for the second half of the night.

Worked 9 hours today. This is hard work, medications have a time schedule and there’s tons of meds. Then I have to stop to help the cook, we have to take meals to the residents in their rooms. Then I go help clean the kitchen and do dishes. I clean the dining room. Even with the lockdown, there are 3 Alzheimer’s patients that don’t understand stay in your room, so we sit them at different tables. Do laundry, dump trash do more meds. Then lunch. Rinse repeat. Laundry and run to the end of the hall to the sweet mentally incapacitated man that wants to know if I have finished his laundry yet. When I leave the room he shouts I LOVE YOU.

Got home, the ewe lambs that we separated from the ewes yesterday we’re back together. DH and I separated them again and did a better job of attaching the half cow panel that was the separation piece. Got Sheep squared away, fed chickens. Trotted out new 5 gallon chicken waterer for meat chickens and put it in the tractor. Moved 44 chicks out of the tubs on the porch. Fed and watered them. Need to feed horses.

DH got 2650 pounds of Feed today, 33 bags. I got to go unload some at the Sheep barn, the rest at the horse barn. I won’t let him help, he’s been sick with the crud. I am freakin tired. I bet I sleep like a rock tonight. Supper can be a bowl of cereal.

i'm exhausted reading about it! 179 more days to go? not sure what your time-line actually is on this, but i'm rooting for ya @baymule !
My time line was going to be 6 months, but I don't think I can take it that long. That is a disorganized place, short staffed, leave 1 person on shift to do the work of 3. I've even been told that I can't have a lunch break, that I get automatically clocked out for, because I need to finish my work. I got a feeling that i'll tell them to shove it in the not too distant future. I had some crappy jobs before, this one ranks down towards the bottom with the worst of them.

Wow for a homesteader chick to say your new job ranks near the bottom of the crappy list is saying something... Being a homesteader you must be able to deal with "crappy" a lot.

It sounds like they think they have you "by the short hairs" so they can treat you shabby and you won't do anything about it. I've never understood employers with that sort of attitude when, by just giving an employee a bit of respect they can get twice as much work out of them. Hope you can find a better job soon!
