Remember the Simon Says game?
So, here I am out on my little walk this evening. The Sun was still out. The temperature was just about perfect. There was no way it could have been better. Normally I am thinking about blog topics and one works its way to the top. And, by the end of the walk – presto-chango I have a blog post.
Not so much tonight. Tonight I was thinking about my route. Was I going to walk 2.3 miles? Or, was I going to go big and go for about 3.5 miles? Before I could make a decision I saw one of my neighbors – and since I did not ask if I could use his name in the blog, let’s call him Simon. (I know you were wondering how I was going to work in Simon, huh?)
I stopped my walk – which I never do – and talked with Simon. We caught up a bit and talked about children, as proud Fathers do. And, there might have been a little neighborhood gossip, but I will never admit it. (Got that, “Simon?” Do not admit it. if you are reading this.)
One of the things Simon asked me was whether or not I was still blogging. Uh, yeah. So, I told him a little about the blog and sent him a link – at his request. Simon has had the advantage (?) of seeing my weight change over the years and seen me walking; he has seen first hand how I work to control Diabetes. And, every once n a long while, we’d chat a bit. How could he not know about the blog? Because I did not listen very well to my Mom when I was young – I did not share.
Simon was polite about it, but he did slap me around a bit. Why hadn’t I told him about it? Why hadn’t I shared my toys? So, now, I ask that you share the blog with another person or two. If you think the information in this blog is helpful; help someone else, please, by sharing this blog address. You know they aren’t going to be subjected to advertising – there is none. There is just information hopefully presented well. Okay, sometimes it’s a bit quirky, but what can I say?
You know, Diabetes is such a lonely disease. We are all left to fight it on our own. And, since there are over 104,000,000 of us in the United States alone; 347,000,000 in the world, chances are that you know one or two folks who have Diabetes or Prediabetes. We really have to come out of the closet if progress in fighting Diabetes is to be made.
As always, thank you for reading. I appreciate your time more than you could know.
I almost went an entire blog and did not remind you that you can control your Diabetes; that Prediabetes can be beat, too. Declare your War On Diabetes and begin the fight today.
