Please scroll down for the current postings. This is a PSA which will run just through the month of November to highlight the need for Diabetes Awareness. Normal postings are directly below this one. THANKS
Parker from Perfectly Parker reminds us that this month is National Diabetes Awareness Month. Miss Parker is such a sweetie to keep reminding us to be aware, and Ann from Zoolarty has been kind enough to put this beautiful graphic together. Our own Mom is a example of being diagnosed with Diabetes II. Mom was diagnosed in 2006. She refused to listen to her Doctors who warned her that her blood sugar levels were rising, and then she was given the official diagnosis that she wasn't bordeline anymore,she was diabetic. Armed with that knowledge Mom said she would push back and yep she sure did. She pushed back and lost over 100 pounds and got rid of all the junky stuff she was pouring into her body that was making her sick. A little under 2 years later she was no longer diabetic. Now we know that this would not be a full proof cure for everyone, but it proved to Mom that she had been given a blessing in disguise. Take better care of yourself and stop making yourself sick, and so she has. She is not AS strict as she used to be but she has given up white flour, sugar and junky foods in favor of lots of lean meats, fruits and vegetables. Thank Miss Parker for allowing us to spread the word about Diabetes!
Please note that we are keeping this post up for the month of NOVEMBER and our regular posts will follow below.
Thanks and blessings to everyone.
