Foot Care Tips
Wash your feet every day. Use warm water and a mild soap. Avoid soaking since it can dry out the skin and lead to cracks. Dry them carefully, especially between the toes.

"I want to welcome you here and to be honest I just wanna give you big hugs. I can so understand where you're at, having been in a place where I didn't (*couldn't*) care. I had some issues in my life that sent me into severe depression, and even though I have two kids to love and care for...well even that wasn't enough to make me care about myself. It just hurts, doesn't it?
Please, PLEASE do find another doctor, and have her/him work with you on both your diabetes care AND on your depression. Once that dark veil lifts it'll be so much easier to care about and for yourself. I feel like I lost 2-3 years of my children's lives because I was so checked-out of it, which sucks and I regret and try to make up for every single day. So PLEASE don't delay in resolving this.
You've made a great first step by coming here and joining our forum family. And you're on the right track--act as if you have diabetes (because you do), TRUST yourself, and stick around here and get the support you want and need."
