As I have said before, lupus has changed my life but, I will not let it control my life!

As you know I have to go barefoot because of lupus, but I still do what I have to do.

We heat our house with firewood. So, I have to cut and spit it. Yes I have to do it barefoot. Here is a photo while cutting and splitting firewood barefoot!

My motto;

πŸ‘£I WILL NOT LET LUPUS CONTROL MY LIFEπŸ‘£

  • Blimey Tiras that looks like a very risky task.

    Apart from the risk of splinters just watch where your swinging that axe.

    Here's to good aim!!!!!

    Good on you for not letting it beat you.

    Hope all,OK with your parents.

    Take care.

    Crusee;

    It is not as dangerous as it seems. I use a chainsaw and not an ax. I do pay attention to the relation to where the saw is and my feet but, with a chainsaw that should be done even with shoes on.

    As for splinters the bottom of my feet are now so tough, that is not an issue.

    Yes gotta keep going can't let lupus stop me, yes, it slows me down a lot. We heat our house with wood, however, it has not been cold enough to have a fire yet this fall. We are still up near 80 degrees Fahrenheit for day time highs! (Still good temps to go barefoot LOL)

    Mom & Dad are about the same slowly going down hill!

  • Tiras

    Firstly Stop,showing off about that heat - it's absolutely freezing here today in Wales.Have been out to Drs surgery this morning and got back to house and now snuggled up,in blanket with hot water bottle and hot drink.

    I have to admit I Prefer being barefoot.I don't wear any footwear in the house but have to,when I Go,out as the dr has warned me about it.I Am diabetic so I have to take good care of my feet.What do you do in winter if you don't mind me asking? You must obviously have some sort of covering to protect your feet from the cold if nothing else.

    You mentioned chainsaw- that's even worse. I can't think about that one any more Tiras I will just have to trust your judgement with that one but be careful. I'm sure you know what you're doing-- lol

    Take care ,stay well,and best wishes to your parents.

    Crusee;

    I'm not showing off about the weather I'm complaining. (LOL)!

    We also have had no rain here in 50 days! It is extremely dry here. Beginning to get worried!

    The winters here as you can see by our temps now. Are Not really an issue for going barefoot here. If by chance it is extremely cold I will just stay inside. (Extremely cold here is below 30 degrees Fahrenheit).

  • Brilliant Tiras, I have a simular view, lupus will never define me!

    Every time I achieve something that is difficult for me, or that I've been told I can't do, it's one in the eye for lupus!

    I guess the soles of your feet are quite hard now, does walking on rough ground hurt?

    Helen;

    Yes, we must keep going even if it is at a slower pace now, or by whatever means necessary. ( even barefoot)!

    The bottom of my feet are so tough now that it does not bother me. I can walk on any type surface. I can walk in rocks, sticks, concrete, even hot asphalt, non of them are an issue now. Even thorns do not stick in my feet now, unless it get a spot that does not touch the ground often, like the upper part of the arch, and that doesn't happen very often. Believe it or not, it is like my feet get tougher each day. I've said this before but, I have had to go barefoot for so long now. I don't want to wear shoes now, barefoot is and feels more natural.

  • Well done you , what has happened to your feet? Norma x

  • πŸ‘£πŸ‘£πŸ‘£πŸ‘£πŸ‘£πŸ‘£πŸ‘£πŸ‘£πŸ‘£πŸ‘£

    Hi Norma;

    I have lupus rashes and blisters on my right foot. The skin is so thin on top that shoes will rub it raw in just a few minutes. My right foot has been this way for a little over 2 years. My doctors and my dermatologist have told me and even written a letter stating for me not to wear shoes. They all say my chances of getting an infection is greater if I wear shoes.

    So with that being said I have been barefoot for over 2 years. As I have stated before, going barefoot is now natural. I don't want to wear shoes now.

Very Best Wishes, Pixiewixie
