Nightly Ritual

This is my nightly ritual. I have to break out the ice pack and wrap it around my feet to help with the RA. 10 minutes on and 10 minutes off with each foot back and forth for about 30 minutes to help undo some of the damage of the day. It's not fun and the ice is torture sometimes but it's something I find a necessity especially on a day when I've been running around or walking a lot. I will say on some of the really hot days days we've been having I have been finding a bit of relief in the ice. That said I do hope this isn't something that lasts too long in my life and that the meds will give me more relief soon. The jury is still out on the nausea deal. Getting more tolerable, I think.

Hey, at least the ice thing it's a designated time that I HAVE to be off my feet. That's not too bad. I should add a facial to it or something once a week. Just thought of that one. NICE.

Do you have a nightly ritual that takes you off your feet? Keep it clean now. I wasn't going there. LOL.




  1. Wow and I thought I was the only foot ritual gurl :) I have to elevate my feet (above heart) for 30 min each night before going to bed. I have a condition that causes HUGE GROSS swelling of my calfs and ankles so this is supposed to help. Meds only help short term so I'm on a life plan to drop more weight to help ease the issue. It will never go away unfortunately, but it can get better. I like the idea of facials though. My hubs gives the best foot massages on the planet so I won't complain too much :)In the spirit of HATS OFF -- FEET UP! (to us) :)

  2. Dren I'm sorry you have to go through that. It's tough but glad you have the hubby hands on to help you out.


I'm always happy to read comments. So show some LOVE but no Hateration please.
