A LETTER TO MY DIABETES.

My dear diabetes mellitus.

I know that you affect every part of

the body including my lovely skin.

I know that you can cause skin disorders.

I promise to keep my skin clean and good.

I promise to continue to love my skin.

You promise to stay away from my skin.

I promise to keep my sugar within normal range.

Because is not your skin but my skin.

I will use a powder in areas

where my skin touches each other.

And to avoid hot showers.

No lotions between my toes.

Because they are my toes.

I promise to use fine lotion for my body.

I will and must prevent dry skin.

Scratching itchy skin can open it up.

Because it is not your skin but my skin.

Cover minor cuts with sterile

gauze after washing it.

I will not use any harsh chemicals on my skin.

Keep my home humid during cold weather.

Keep my feet clean and dry.

See a dermatologist for skin care.

I will see my doctor if I get major burns or cut.

Manage my skin well.

I promise to take care of my own skin.

I will pay attention and

catch any skin disorder early.

Maintain my weight and my sugar.

This is my promise.

Sincerely yours,

Keeping my diabetes together.
