Today's post is about compression socks. For quite some time now I have been dealing with swollen feet. It seems to be mostly heat related, but who knows. I had blood work done and everything seems to be fine. I have been taking water pills and HUGE potassium pills and it helps some but there are some days my feet still look like they belong to an elephant. A short time ago I purchased some compression socks that are used for people with circulatory issues. Now first let me say that I am NOT a sock person. I would much rather be barefoot than in socks or shoes. However, these are really quite comfortable ONCE YOU GET THEM ON! The first few times I wore them, I had to have Jim help me get them on. Oh My Heck! It looked pretty funny, I am sure. Now I can put them on all by myself like a big girl :) If you have any circulation issues at all that are leaving you with swelling, I would highly recommend getting some of these. You don't have to spend a fortune on them either. Some go as high as $100 a pair, but I got these at Walmart in the men's department. This is what the package looks like:
I think they were about $7!
