My Mood: Can't wear socks

mcawthorn, I have sock issues too. When the weather is cold and I am at home I wear down booties that you can buy online at REI. Yummmm. They have a smooth soft lining and they are soo warm. I want to be buried in them.

No, thankfully I don't have edema, just PN. I'm a guy living in Georgia where the winters are cold, so I do have to wear socks. I ordered around 10 different brands of diabetic socks. None of them work as well as a pair of old Pierre Cardin's that have extra wide tops. The possum socks feel pretty good, but I haven't kept them on for long. After reading some of the replies to my post, I decided to try gradually building up time wearing socks. So far, I've built up to 3 hours a day and my tolerance for the socks is increasing. Thanks everyone for your help.

My Mood: Can't wear socks
Default My

wound Dr. told me Sue you must have your feet and legs to just below your
knees measured,then we will sent them to Germany make those rubber
compression hose...You will thank me and there just a little higher then those
100 dollars ones we told you to buy...
Well even though he's on a cane,as soon as i can catch him i'm going to
choke him with those 400 dollar rubber things i can't wear. I'm glad i'm going to rehab for a month,now those drs. couldn't stop laughing when they saw them...Insurance does not paid for these little honies,and i'm not either.
Oh well i carry them in case i can catch him.... Sue

Default Finally im not alone!!!!!

Im actually crying as I read this thread. I thought I was crazy, thought I was alone. I'm a T1 Diabetic and I suffer from everything from being able to not wear shoes and socks or underwear and even regular pants and not a special type of gym shorts. Laying in bed hurts if the sheets aren't pulled tight. Cant sleep under blankets. Can hardly walk most the time. Went from weighing 165 down to 122 in less than a few months. All this led to my wife asking for a divorce. No one believed me. Everyone just called me lazy. I'm in too much pain to be lazy. I'd laugh but it's TRUE. Im never comfortable anymore. Ive been like this for almost 2 years and no luck narrowing down the exact illness. And now I know I'm not crazy. Thank u
