my stepdad, who is looking out for my health and best interest in life, occasionally makes comments about me wearing flip flops.
i know i need to pay attention to my feet. It was like the 2nd thing I was told after being diagnosed. but can someone explain why? Especially if I'm careful about my blood sugars and keep them under good control and my A1C is great... then please someone tell me whats the problem cuz I guess I was really never told.
I LOVE flip flops. I would wear them every day except that we have about 4 months of snow here in Wisconsin... in which I wear clogs (im not sure these are any better?).
I absoutely HATE tennis shoes. I feel like my feet are trapped and can't breath. I really hate them. I think in the past 5 years I've worn tennis shoes probably twice. Seriously. I even wore flip flops everyday I was touring/hiking the grand canyon. They are just the most comfortable.
ANYWAY... sorry for the long post. My main questions:
Please explain the whole feet thing....
Can I still wear flip flops?
Would flip flops with a little arch be better?
Finally I do have a doctor appointment in like a month so I will be asking her then and I'll see if she'll scare me into wearing tennis shoes lol
