Looking at YouTube videos about the half-homeless (people living in vehicles), I can see how much more difficult it is compared to what I thought.
I am looking for a breakout ebook. When living walkabout, you have to be nimble.
Passive and recurring income is the secret to a walkabout lifestyle.
On the job at Ambs, storms will cost me dearly in July and August. I just have to accept it. Storms throw me out of the perfect attendance bonus.
I did a carb binge day yesterday, and I have been sick ever since. I am peeing constantly, and my feet are swollen.
Swollen feet, medically known as peripheral edema, can be caused by various factors, with diabetes being one of the significant contributors.
In diabetes, high blood sugar levels can damage the blood vessels and nerves, impairing the body’s ability to circulate blood efficiently.
This, in turn, can cause fluid to accumulate in the feet and ankles, resulting in swelling.
Diabetes-related kidney problems can also contribute to fluid retention, further exacerbating the issue.
Other common causes of swollen feet include:
- Prolonged standing or sitting: Remaining in one position for extended periods can cause fluid to pool in the lower extremities.
- Injury or trauma: Sprains, fractures, or other injuries to the foot or ankle can cause localized swelling.
- Venous insufficiency: A condition where the veins have difficulty returning blood to the heart, leading to fluid buildup in the legs and feet.
- Heart, liver, or kidney disease: These conditions can disrupt the body’s fluid balance and result in edema.
- Pregnancy: Hormonal changes and increased pressure on veins during pregnancy can lead to swollen feet.
- Medications: Certain medications, such as calcium channel blockers or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), may cause fluid retention.
Treatment for swollen feet typically depends on the underlying cause.
For individuals with diabetes, managing blood sugar levels through diet, exercise, and medication can help alleviate swelling. My sugar was 342 this morning due to the carb binge, and I am now back to keto for good, or at least for one month.
Additionally, lifestyle changes such as elevating the feet, avoiding prolonged sitting or standing, and wearing compression stockings can aid in reducing edema.
If swelling persists or worsens despite home remedies, or if it is accompanied by other concerning symptoms like severe pain, redness, or warmth, it is essential to seek medical attention promptly.
A podiatrist, a specialized foot and ankle doctor, should be consulted when:
- Swelling is severe and sudden, and there is no obvious injury.
- The swelling is asymmetric, affecting only one foot.
- There are signs of infection, such as redness, warmth, and fever.
- Swelling is recurrent or persistent, especially in individuals with diabetes. I have to keep an eye on this.
Seeing a podiatrist will ensure a thorough examination, accurate diagnosis, and appropriate treatment plan tailored to the individual’s specific condition, leading to effective management and relief from swollen feet.
This swelling is in both feet and came on without an underlying injury.
I will track the sugar religiously until the diet and meds take it back to normal levels. I will not eat until after 5 pm.
I am adjusting my schedule to make better use of my time.
- eating keto for 66 days
- walk to Publix once a day if weather permitting, either before or after a shift
- one article per day documenting my day
- one article per day on AI companion robots
- keep the room neat and clean at all times
- do the articles in short bursts before or after work
- track my blood sugar readings if they are above 100
- shower daily
- dental care 2x per day
- use baby shampoo to prevent styes
- eye drops

Trying to make optional activities required will sabotage one thing.
Except for eating keto, all the rest are optional.
