Diabetes - Don't Do as My Friend Did
My friend is a sweet old guy. He found earlier in life that he had diabetes. But he always had this gift of denial that gave him excuses as to how something bad was OK. Do not each of us make excuses like those some times?
So he wold eat any foods he chose, sodas, alcoholic beverages, yes, even chocolate fudge, eagerly.
My friend is nigh on to 80 today, and it would seem like he got away with it all. But did he?
First he lost one leg. Then the next. So his troubles stopped there, right? Now they're looking at one of his hands.
And where is my friend's home? It vacillates between assisted living and a nursing home. He's keeping up his spirits, but where will it all stop? Another friend of mine for a short while cared for his great grandmother. She lost both legs and both arms. She lost her vision. She was deaf. And she could only mumble. Surprisingly she lived a number of years before she died.
What kind of life did she have? Take diabetes seriously...
