    The prices (£16.99 each) are getting a little silly now, was only roughly 4 years ago I paid £11.99 for the Batman & Son Robin/Damian two pack.

    LOW: Life sucks. Let me rant about it.

    Went to the foot doctor after so long, and...well, let's just say I'm not gonna be doing any marathons any time soon. I've recently been a bagger for a grocery store, and I've been getting pains in both my ankles and on the bottom of both feet. My doctor tells me that the reason is not just because I'm not used to standing for hours on end, but rather my heels are tilting away from each other instead of staying straight. He says that in about ten years, I'll need reconstructive surgery done on both feet to have them work properly. Until then, I have to wear these braces that more or less slows down this bone problem. I can still work, but for no more than six-hour shifts. I may have to quit my job if the pain gets worse for a desk job.

    So yeah, my life gets fucked yet again. :banghead:  I do everything good that I can in this world, and I'm rewarded physical deformity. Fucking A.

    Sorry, I needed to get it off my chest. :(

    That sucks buddy... I truly do sympathize with you. I also cannot stand for long periods of time due to foot pain. I've never gone to a dr to get it checked out as I hate drs, but I know the feeling. Its literally excruciating, sometimes crippling. I hope things get better and I hope the braces help. If not, try and do everything possible to make standing more tolerable. See an orthotist in your area that can hook you up with some custom made shoes and inserts. It usually helps a little bit, but sometimes a little bit is all we need to make it through those shifts. Also, see if your scheduler will work with you to give you an off day every two days, and rest your feet on the third. There is also a device from sharper image called a shiatzu massager that worked wonders on me. It would take away some pain to allow me to sleep at night. Don't let this stop you from being a good person. Even if we are not rewarded in this life, we will be in the next one :D  All the best buddy!
