Being a Diabetic
Monday, September 14, 2015
I found out I was a diabetic will in the Hospital recovering from a Heart Attack while on vacation. Not only was I trying to coop with having a heart attack I was told that I also was a diabetic. One minute Im on the beach relaxing people watching and the next laying in a Hospital bed. The week before vacation I stained my log home in Gettysburg, not even thinking I had any kind of heart problems, since it was a 2 story home and I was running up and down the ladder all day with no issues. My brother died at 47 from complications from being a diabetic, my sister died at 57 from cancer. My father died the same year as my sister 2 months apart. My mother died 3 years earlier. I can remember lying in the Hospital bed thinking i was following in my famiiy"s curse. Its been 5 years now since my heart attack and Im just now getting my disease under control with exercise and eating healthy, Im just hoping I can keep it up.
