Time to act Thankful for the life I have been given.


Thursday, November 28, 2013

My doctor told me his mentor would rather treat an Aids patient than someone with diabetes. Because the aids patients are scared. The diabetics don't realize the situation they are in.

I am in denial. I don't want to admit that I have diabetes. I know that I do. I don't want to have problems. I don't want to realize that I can cause my own problems.

I have plenty to be grateful for. I have been avoiding facing the problem. It has felt too big. I need to start again. I need to figure out how to set my life up in a good way. I need to figure out how to feel happy that I have a choice.

My friend died today of cancer. She had no choice. She left three kids, two are still young. I saw her last week. I know she would have wished she had the choices that I have. So I need to take advantage of the choices.

Tomorrow I will start a 100 day plan. I will take some time today to plan what I want to do and how.

Hug your families and be grateful for your choices. Happy Thanksgiving friends.

Losing a friend to cancer, leaves a great void. Be kind to yourself. Develop a self care plan that works for you. Start with just one thing and build from there.
I have found that having diabetes just means we have to take better care of ourselves and develop a healthy lifestyle. From my point of view that is living the good life and we are so worth it.

    Listen to the lectures of Richard Bernstein M.D. who wrote "The Diabetes Solution" on YouTube as he has a lot of help. I learned a lot from reading his book.

You don't want to admit you have diabetes because you don't want to give up your addiction to SUGARS/STARCHES. That is a HARD thing to do. Cookies, cakes, pies, candy, etc and SODA, are all so a part of us and they are NO GOOD.

The BBC documentary THE MEN WHO MADE US FAT is on YouTube and worth listening to.

    My deepest sympathy for the loss of your friend. Some times it takes the loss of a friend to realize how truly blessed we are....even facing such demons as diabetes.

    It can be hard to accept a condition like diabetics because we still feel fine. To realize it is something most of us have control over is a big step. Best of luck with your plan. You are certainly on the right track.

Sorry for the loss of your friend.
