My dad was placed on home hospice care yesterday. This evening my DS was asking how he ended up having chronic heart failure, COPD, diabetes, and more. So I explained how he was diagnosed with diabetes in 1981 and never changed his eating or exercise habits. His addiction to sugar was stronger than his ability to resist it and improve his health.
I know that I could very easily become diabetic and it scares me. I'm also scared that someday my resistance muscles will give in, I'll regain the weight I've lost, and I'll put my health at risk.
Nevertheless, I will focus on today and making choices that will maintain or improve my health so I have a better chance of outliving my parents.
