The first half of this book contains true and graphic accounts of people with mild to very serious foot problems. Drama, humor, and heart run through these stories of real people, just like you, who needed help and had tried many things on their own. Traditional medicine and "thinking outside the box" got these people happy, comfortable, and many times simply out of their wheel-chair walking and dancing again. The second half of this book contains over 101 budget minded solutions, progressing from the simpler, cheaper to the more expensive medical treatments as necessary. Many suggestions are Do-It-Yourself. You will scratch your head and say, "Why didn't I think of that?" Are you an amputee or do you have a bunion? Yourself, a friend, or family member has foot problems what should you do? You will find multiple ideas and possibilities, such as: "What can I use to relieve foot pain that doesn't cost so much?" "How do I know if I really need a custom orthotic?" "Does anyone else have these same problems, or is it just me?" "How do I buy the right shoes in the first place?" "What if part of my foot has been amputated? How can I balance and walk again?" Lynda Elliott Goyzueta is a Certified Pedorthist who has dealt with these questions and found solutions. She has worked in a clinical setting as a practitioner/manager as well as helping the neighbor on the street. When you meet her she will ask you, "What's In Your Shoes?"

What made me kill and kill again?
CHAPTER I Are there any women today, I wonder, like the girl wife of Jacopone da Todi, who are found in the midst of worldly brilliance wearing the hair shirt of piety and devotion over their spotless hearts? I doubt it. It is no wonder that Jacopone, that "smart" thirteenth-century Italian lawyer, became a great saint when he made that discovery, after his beautiful young wife's accidental death. It would make a saint of anybody. I am quite sure Gertrude is not like that. But then Gertrude is not my wife-as yet. Nor am I Jacopone. I am nothing more, I fear, than a contented voluptuary of a bookworm. Like King James, I feel that were it my fate to be a captive, I should wish to be shut up in a great library consuming my days among my fellow-prisoners, the blessed books. To distil the reading of a lifetime into a little wisdom for my poor wits, that has been all my aim and my ambition, if by any name so dynamic as ambition I may call it. An old young man is what I have been called, and Gertrude seems propelled by some potent urge to change me-God knows why. I have just been talking with-I mean listening to-Gertrude. We are to be married, she says, in three weeks. Time out of mind we have been friends, Gertrude and I, as our mothers had been before us. She, the highly modern spinster and I, such as I am, have been linked for years by an engagement which is not an engagement in the old sense at all. It is a sort of entente cordiale. An engagement in the conventional meaning of the word would be as abhorrent to Gertrude as the old-fashioned marriage. As soon would she think of "being given in marriage" with bell, book and orange blossoms as of calling herself "Mrs. Randolph Byrd"-or anything but Miss Bayard. That is what we have been discussing this gloomy afternoon in my snug little apartment before a garrulous fire. For Gertrude is not so absurd as to hesitate to call on me at my apartment any more than I would hesitate to call on her in Gramercy Park.
