In my two pregnancies I experienced Preeclampsia. My feet, and hands would get swollen. After the birth of children they would become normal. Then at age twenty eight my feet started geting swollen for no reason at all. My left foot was more prone to swelling. In the beginning I went through a round of doctors trying to get rid of the affliction. Then one said to me that there was no cure, and  it was part of my life.

To help my condition I have to lie on bed, elevate my feet on two pillows. I keep them that way when I get a chance to lie down. Another way is while sitting, I keep my feet raised onto a futon, or a chair. I dislike long journeys, because of the severe discomfort I face due to my feet. 

Yesterday I was frying when drops of hot oil dropped on my left foot. I immediately rubbed ice on it but it’s painful. Now it’s swollen plus burnt. It’s my own fault. I wish I remember to be careful, and not get things done in a hurry.
