car work with diabetes. The grease and grime in my fingers when testing seems like it would alter my numbers. Then building "Pete's" chicken coupe I tore up my fingers up pretty good. Two weeks later and now they are starting to heal. There is no information I can find about precautions or what others have done while doing home or auto maintenance in these situations. Now I am going to make the most un-true statement ever and I know it is wrong: I am the only diabetic that works on their own car and does home repairs. This statement I know is 100% false but back to feeling alone, this is when I feel like I am the only one like this.
I know there are millions of diabetics out there that do this sort of stuff every day. The only thing is I can't seem to find them on this inter web. Just like how I never found any camping, outdoor, or guy stuff related to diabetes and I started blogging. I know there has to be someone or somewhere out there that can help me get grease off of my hands or how to keep me from destroying my fingers and hands.
