Hello, I am Martins Adewale and I am a few months away from becoming a father of two. I fell sick three weeks ago having thought that my sickness was a product of stress from the runarounds which I had been doing lately for the preparation of my kids.
The illness lasting more than expected, I got admitted in my family clinic and was diagnosed to have diabetes. A family doctor, Dr Mayowa, broke the news in such a ++) manner. I could remember those words, Sorry sir, the illness had eaten deep.
That day, I had the worst trauma of my life having known some of the implications of being a diabetic. During the week, I was discharged but various thoughts still drove through my mind. My restriction to certain meals, restriction to certain activities, Oh no, I cried. How would I cope? My survival instincts, my wounds won’t heal quickly. I’m in need of help.
If only I listened, If only I reduced my sugar intake. But no, I loved that which pleased my heart desire.
The only thing giving me joy was my pregnant wife and my unborn kids. It was sadly funny how my whole life changed in the twinkle of an eye. – The readjustment bureau.
Though there could be various causes of diabetes, but that which I know of and is most common is the consumption of sugary foods that which I fell a victim to. Diabetes kills, either slowly or rapidly. The lesson which I learnt in a hard way, I wont want you to experience.
Beware of sugary foods.
Fruits are a blessing Incorporate them into your diet.
Real foods are real. Stick to them and avoid junks.
Try to live a healthy life as much as possible (at all times) – For that which is so sweet to the mouth, slowly does it kill.
