I just got word today that I have diabetes. That is all I know at this point. I had the standard two-hour test for diabetes yesterday, and the results came up positive. On Monday afternoon, I have another appointment with my physician, an osteopath, to get more details.

It occurred to me that diabetes is another condition I have inherited from my father. Fortunately, he was able to control his diabetes through diet for most of his life. Now, at 89 years old, however, he takes insulin shots. Hopefully, I will be able to avoid the insulin, at least for now, too.

A couple of years ago, I would probably have been very anxious over this news, but, in my newly found serenity, I have practically no stress over the issue at all. I still feel very much at peace.

    Sorry to hear that. That must be disappointing. I suggest you look into transdermal magnesium since, not only is it good for diabetes (by helping cells use sugar more efficiently), but it’s also excellent for autism/Asperger symptoms. I’ve been using it myself lately. Transdermal is the newest way because very little to none is absorbed when taken internally. Try searching for magnesium oil (it only feels oily, but it’s just magnesium chloride in water). Good luck!

    Thanks. In fact, I plan to head over to the health food store later this afternoon.

    Great. Hope you find something that works out, whether this or other things.

    Also, you may need to order that particular product online, since unfortunately it’s not yet widely available in stores. You could get the dry flake version and mix it with water yourself for a more economical way. (But they don’t want you to know that.)
