Help available: Please reach out for help to a mental health professional, friend, clergy, support group, anything to help you connect to others. You are a whole person w/out your mom physically here but you can't feel it. People adjust to such a loss and there is every reason to believe you can also. Peace and good health.

A 24-year-old female asked about a 59-year-old male:
What can my father in law do about his plantar faciitis pain?

Stretch : Plantar fasciitis usually goes away 90% by consistent stretching. Stretch or find a physical therapist that can help you with a stretching routine. The most common stretch is called the "runner's" stretch or "wall stretch". If pain is chronic, you may have other pathology rather than just tight/short ligaments and tendons. Hope this helps.
