    Besides the walking and standing, there's the climbing on ladders to staple things up high, putting up and taking down bulletin boards, we always had to post things outside our rooms, too, and I was forever moving boxes and trying to reorganize.
    One winter, the podiatrist told me not to stand, so I wheeled around my room on my chair. It was a riot.

    I wish shoes had those cushioned mats as insoles.

    Thank you again for the replies everyone, it's been fascinating to read about the variety of views on the subject. It seems that we are affected in different ways but can all agree that as long as we keep moving then we can keep pain to a minimum.
