A disease associated with the way a person or group of people lives.
As a youth growing up we are oblivious or just don’t care that the choices we make today would affect how we live in the future.
Until you witness someone in a predicament then you might realise that moderation is key to a health life.
Living with a lifestyle disease, knowing that if you had made one change to your past you may not be in the current status is not an easy thing to deal with.
I unfortunately have the opportunity of living with and taking care of someone with Diabetes and it’s not an easy task.
More so I have to take extra care of myself to make sure I don’t fall into the same boat, as generation after generation seem to be cursed to relive the inevitable.
Administering insulin and taking blood test to insure you give the right dosage, knowing that this person is the one who made you into the person you are today.
Looking on as someone loses their eyesight, limbs, organs failing or general health should be enough to help you understand that, this could be you if you don’t act on it early.
Most people will say, “well I have to go sometime so I might as well live my life”, yes you do but at whose expense. Who is going to take care of you while you are suffering on a bed, missing a leg at the age of fifty, sixty?
Falling ill you would then realise that people are selfish nobody cares, so why hurt you existence.
Take the step change one thing that might benefit you in the long run, drink less, eat healthier, exercise daily, moderate.
Regular physical activity helps prevent obesity, heart disease, hypertension, diabetes and many other things.
I made my change, not just for me but also to help support the ones who needs me most, and I still live and enjoy life, just like everyone else.
Cheers to long and prosperous living.
