Entrances and Exits

The Year

Keeping My Feet Healthy

Winter in Chicago is catching up with my diabetic feet.  No matter how much I lotion up before bed, the cracks are beginning to show.  I recall a visit to my endocrinologist where she tested for sensitivity and scoped for cracks, wounds, or anything out of the ordinary.  She told me how lucky I was that the skin on my feet was smooth and well maintained.  She said to keep up with what I was doing.  Though truthfully, I wasn't doing anything, it was summer and my feet were in good condition because of the warm weather and pure luck.
