This feels a little weird.

I’ve got a new Twitter follower:


Since I’m the curious type, I clicked on the link to their site. What I found was no less than 43 different varieties of “Diabetic Socks”.

I’m not sure how I feel about that. For some reason, the term “diabetic socks” sounds bad to me. And weird. So weird that I have to use quotation marks every time I use the term “diabetic socks”. And shouldn’t they now be called “Socks With Diabetes” (or SWD)? Okay, I jest. But the term “diabetic socks” still gives me the creeps, no matter how many times I write it (with quotation marks) in my post.

I mean, I get the idea… helps wick away moisture, promote healthy circulation, et cetera. But really folks… I’ve been a PWD for over two decades, and I’ve never worn “diabetic socks”, and my feet are just fine.

Keep your feet clean. Wear clean, non-restricting footwear, whatever it is, every day. Rinse. Repeat. If you can do that, you stand a good chance of avoiding having to visit a site like that to get a pair of “diabetic socks”.
