For the past two days, I had developed pain in the bottom of my left heel. Is this plantar fasciitis problem? I am not sure.  As long as I was wearing shoes or not walking I was okay. As soon as I keep my foot on floor even with slippers, I was getting pain. My aerobic exercises, walking, swimming continued though with little discomfort, whenever I had to put pressure on my left heel.


During the night, I started having more discomfort in walking. Mentioned this to Arti in passing and then tried to ignore more or less and went to rest.


When I woke up to address nature’s call, I felt shooting pain even to take a few steps to the bathroom. It was very uncomfortable. When Arti got up, I told her the problem I had. I am not able to walk. How do I carry out daily chores?

I had come back from Kathmandu only during the last week. I was fed up of working for others. I wanted to do something on my own, though my earlier attempts were not encouraging. I was taking total rest for past one week. I remembered, I had fixed a meeting in late afternoon on some business. How do I go and attend that meeting?

I thought of utilizing a wheelchair for my mobility. If I have to move in wheelchair, it has to be foldable and should fit in to our car boot without occupying a seat. How do I source a good wheel chair in short notice? I need to ask for a lot of help in sourcing the wheelchair


We have normal executive chairs, in home, which could serve as wheel chair till the time we get normal wheel chair. The chair will occupy rear of the car fully and I was not sure, whether it would fit in to a car. This would be more cumbersome than wheel chair. Best is to get wheel chair fast.

This is not end of it. I need to ask someone to drop me to meeting location and then ask the person to pick me back after the meeting. This small problem in leg is creating so many problems. Solve one problem at a time. First, get wheelchair. WHEEL CHAIR FIRST AND FAST……..


There is nothing wrong with your heel, get up, I will massage your foot. Soak your feet in the water, you would be alright. Get up……Arti was waking me up with foot massage.


After some time with chores, I was feeling more or less normal. Even now, I have some residual pain but it is perfectly workable. Then what is all this about WHEEL CHAIR?
