A Holey Reminder

In the day-to-day, I am on autopilot with managing my type 1 diabetes. It is what it is, and I’m in such a routine that I don’t often give it much thought.

I’ve always stood by what my parents have instilled, in that it’s good to get your hands dirty now and then. Not only do I agree, but I often garden bare handed. Last week while pruning and trimming my tomato plants, I did so without gloves; not just green thumb, but green fingers:photo2In scrubbing them off, I noticed all the little holes in my fingers from checking my blood sugar were filled with dirt. A reminder, that yes, I do have diabetes and my fingers are holey:photo

  1. I noticed that today also and it freaks me out,makes me itch all over,I have a minor case of trypophobia (if you don’t know what it is don’t google) it’s images of holes close together.I’m just wondering how long does it take to heal.

Tell me what you think!
