Thank you for your service to our country. It is sad that there even has to be a homeless vet program. You guys should be living in fine homes with good care. You gave so much.

It is great that you are taking care to prevent. I wish I had followed that same path and then perhaps I would not be here with diabetes, but it is what it is.

Where did you get your arch supports? I have very high arches and they drive me nuts when I don't have a good shoe. My crocks are great, but not so good looking. Is it something you can put inside any shoe?

I too want to wish you well as you move to Phoenix. And good luck as you continue to deal with your diabetes and feet problems. Have a wonderful Christmas! Stay safe and healthy!

Sounds like things are going well for you. I have been wondering about those supports that go in shoes. Now that I have seen they have helped you, I think I will surely try them. Good Luck in your new city, but be sure to go online and come back here.

Good Luck my friend. Do you wear diabetic shoes? Keep me posted as to how you are doing.
