I was diagnosed in February 2008 with Type 2 Diabetes. In addition to the type 2 diabetes, I have orthopedic problems, both shoulders, my right elbow and wrist, all from an old industrial injury. I also have GI problems, which already severely limit what I can eat. Type 2 Diabetes limits my diet even more, especially since I can't stand chicken. LOL
Anyway, I am disabled and on a pension. Learning that I have diabetes wasn't exactly news that I cared to hear, but now that I know, I am coping and dealing with it. It's not the end of the world. Not even close.
Life DOES mean something! Somewhere in all of this, God has a plan. There's a line in a song on MercyMe's "All That Is Within Me" album that says, "Count it pure joy when the world comes crashin'. Hold your head up and keep on dancin'." That's from James 1:2-4 in the Bible. That's where I plan on keeping my mind, my heart, and my attitude. Murmuring and complaining doesn't help anything. On the contrary, it just makes bad things worse..
I'm done faking it for friends and family. If you ask me how I'm doing, you're going to hear the truth. You will, however, also hear that JESUS is my Hope, my Friend, my Healer, and my God. I will rejoice in Him, NO MATTER WHAT! :D
That's me in a nutshell for now. That's where I am.
Oh, my name is Michael, so when you leave comments, feel free to call me that, if you wish.
GOD BLESS YOU!
