The battle of my right foot

One of things I absolutely hate and dread almost as much as my mother is the chore of shoe shopping.

I think at the moment I own about a maximum of five pairs of seemingly sensible shoes. No heals for this girl, heals look extremely uncomfortable to me as it. But I was a kid that never did the AFO and as a result my feet hold a natural posture of being splayed out resembling a duck.  I am not sure how or if that is impacting my functional movement. I, at age 11 was assessed and moulded for afos they were a full plaster cast with a front and back; the base of which did really look like a ducks foot.  The idea of them was to help me improve my flat footedness.  I hated them and after some time gave up with them. When my physio went into semi retirement mom, and I crashed his party and gave him one of them with flowers if I am not mistaken.

getting shoes on is hard get shoes on my rare foot is a battle

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.
