Yesterday I received so many good comments in response to the changes I am making in my workout and routine and diet and I want to thank everyone for their input. It was a very busy day yesterday and I wasn’t always able to respond back to those comments the way I would have liked too, but I would like to say that the advice was excellent. There are so many different approaches that we take when fighting Type II Diabetes and have read all of the books available from some of the greatest doctors of our time for the last 5 years. During this time the most important thing I learned is that it can be controlled through diet, exercise, stress reduction and proper rest. The blog that I have developed is my way of tracking and reporting all of things in my life that I feel are important in the life of a 50 something year old battling this disease and how I am learning to balance those things I have learned throughout my life.
These things that I try to keep in balance are the very same things that others are also learning to balance in their battles with other diseases such as autoimmune diseases, cancer, and heart disease. I love to hear about how others are approaching their own battles with the diagnoses they are receiving from their medical professionals and learn from their successes and failures. Even those who are not suffering from a disease and just trying to discover a healthier life for themselves provides information on life lessons learned in their struggles and these to feed my brain with idea’s.
Let’s face it, turning 50 years old is certainly a turning point in most of our lives and is a time to wake up and take a good hard look at where we are and learn how to take control of where we want to be in our upcoming years. This process usually starts with personal finances as we all want to be able to pay the bills even when we reach an age where we are no longer working. But even if we are able to find the answers to the financial direction we are going, we also have to ask ourselves if we feel we will even reach that age and if we do will we be healthy enough to actually enjoy it.
It is important to understand that the blog posts you write today not only act as a reinforcement to guide yourself to a successful future but also act as inspiration for others who are fighting the same battles. Society has changed so much to where our little neighborhoods we grew up in just don’t exist anymore and it is through this world of technology that we find others facing the same situations that we are currently in and we now have the ability to make some really great connections with like minded individuals. We all have to learn to embrace this technology and take advantage of the opportunities we have to help, support and share our struggles. It is the opportunity to learn not only from books, but from people reading books and living life even if they are on the other side of the planet.
Keep on with your comments to my posts and your terrific posts each day. I will try my best to support you as you are supporting me in my struggles. Yea, I am talking about you. You totally rock!
