    I’m with ya brother.

    Most cases of just about anything can be solved naturally, and half the time the hype is just that. Take statin drugs for example. The ASCOT trial showed a whopping 36% improvement in heart attack ..... “relative risk”. The reality, your risk of a heart attack drops from 3% to 2%. Kinda cast a bit of doubt on just how important they are. ... but hey, Pfizer made billions off of it.

    Well I am cleared back to work on December 17th. Will see how it goes. Will make sure im off my feet a little more at breaks-lunch . No O.T. for a while either. 3 or 4 years till retire so will see if it holds up.

    Have gotten special shoes to work in and molds were made of my feet for inserts. Since my arch collapsed as part of it my right foot is 1/2 size longer and sits a little lower so a little bit of adjustment walking.

    Looking forward to getting back out to work .

    Hope it goes well for you. Diabetic now for 14 years. Controlling it pretty well, numbers are good (for now). Good luck!

    If I remember right its 23 years for me. . All I can say is stay on top of it cause it never really goes away. Good diet and take your medicine. I let mine slip for awhile and now got my wake up call.

    Doing better now.

    Well first week back in the books. I am out of shape. Being pretty much sedentary for 5 months I get out of breath easy. Plus I am working inside cleanroom environments this past week so having to bunny suit up. With the new diabetic shoes it is a little hard getting my right leg into bunny suit and putting full weight on it . If your bunny suit touches floor have to start all over.
