Many people believe that a diagnosis of diabetes is an automatic death sentence.
Many people believe that having diabetes means you cannot live a “normal” life.
Many people believe that they are prisoners of diabetes and a “diabetic” lifestyle.
A “prisoner,” is one who is “confined” within the boundaries that restrains them, whether these boundaries are physical, mental or emotional depends (most of the time) on you!
Diabetes controls only as much of your life as you allow it to (within reason).
Education and information on the topic of diabetes, nutrition, care and well-being are essential to living a great life as a diabetic!
Diabetes allows YOU to become closer to YOURSELF!
It’s easy to do nothing, to blame yourself and (or) to blame others.
It’s sometimes hard to start the physical and mental process towards living and feeling better.
It requires time, physical and mental activity, medicinal intervention and assistance may be required at times (although unwanted) it may be necessary.
In short, an effective plan of action is needed!
Every action in life (good or bad) is habitual, we, as humans are creatures of habit.
Why not try replacing those “bad” negative habits with “good” positive ones today?
Before you know it, change becomes evident!
Change … not a cure.
How long will you allow yourself to be a “prisoner” unto “yourself?”
