If you read my post from yesterday, you will realize the extreme pain I was in from using a treadmill. After talking to you and people in a neuropathy group on Facebook, I quickly learned I need healing on my feet and also I would have to give up the treadmill.
Even with the best shoes, diabetic neuropathy still makes it presence known. I suffered from the pain all evening and finally this morning the stabbing pain was gone, with only some sensitivity left behind.
Your prayers worked. I was able to walk with very little pain. I went back to the gym, looked at the treadmill and walked on by through the doors to the warm water pool. I stayed in there for 45 minutes. I did some swimming. I exercised my arms and legs.
After my mild workout I was able to get out of the pool and still be able to walk. Now that I am home and showered I still feel no great pain. I would say that the pool is where I belong.
I am disappointed as I feel I won’t get the benefit from the pool on my gait and weight loss, but the pain I didn’t occur was worth it. I hope I did something to help myself in walking today. Thanks to all who said the prayers for me.
