Diabetes – a daily struggle to live fully
If diabetes is a boxing match, I would be at ringside.
The analogy is appropriate without a reason. My younger sister and brother are diabetics, so are my remaining two uncles. More than five of the guys I play tennis with are diabetics. A cousin had his right leg amputated because of diabetes and a friend lost one of his eyes due to the disease.

When was the last time you went for a vacation? If it was too long ago to remember, then it’s time to have one.

Can you be fit and healthy without nutritional supplements?
Yes, you can!
Mbah Gotho was born when there were no food supplements. In fact vitamins and mineral were unheard of when he was born on December 31, 1870 in rural Indonesia.

Oh,God, my chest hurts
Is there a member of your family who has had a bypass operation? A friend, or you, maybe?
Then you must know it is something they (or you), don’t want to go through again, right?
The entire process, from pre-op preparation to post-op rehabilitation, is a series of tests, of prepping you up before you go under the knife, to making a new life of dos and don’ts after.
Have you seen a senior citizen doing tai chi looking grouchy and grumpy at the same time?
Or crying while he’s brisk walking; or bitching about life while putting his loving touch to his flower garden?
I am sure not. It’s like salt sprinkled on the icing of a yummy hazelnut chocolate cake.
It’s because exercise, or any physical activity, has the transforming power of making a lethargic and boring day to a sweat-drenched and invigorating one.
