Turns out everyone's just been tolerating uncomfortable socks!
As far as I can tell, everyone’s socks are too tight! Fortunately, companies have started making loose socks for diabetics, and there are no rules about who can wear them. I get the king size for my person because at our house, there’s no such thing as a sock that’s too loose. Men’s black socks size 13-15 (not to be confused with shoe sizes which are somehow a separate thing 🙄).
