instagramed: I feel supported. A new set of braces and a new pair of shoes. Time to get used to my feet being where they are supposed to be again after wearing my first pair down for a year – they sink and don’t have the same lift after a year, and that artificial arch lift is what keeps me able to walk the small distances I can. I walked some today and let Esme do the rest and that was a good first run at these braces. #ptdd oh, and aren’t these shoes pretty? Last year, I had this exact shoe, in the only color the store offered : a turquoise and dark gray. It was really the only option that my braces fit in. This year, I ordered the other color!!! Yay. - on 7/22. I feel supported. A new set of braces and a new pair of shoes.

instagramed: My old friends, the dumbbells. They are downstairs, courtesy of E. The junimo from stardew valley may be guarding them. Since Esme and I are on a break while I regain my equilibrium, I did a very quick set of upper body things, just to feel like those muscles were still there, but not too much to put my heart rate too high right now.
