I was walking into the local YMCA last evening and overhead a conversation that made my eyes bug:
"Hey, I heard you totalled your car last week!", said a girl of about 12
"Yep that's right. It's hell to fall asleep behind the wheel of your car and later find out you have diabetes.", said a very lucky to be alive girl of about 17.
That is downright spooky. Not only is that girl extremely lucky to be alive, but so are those around her while on the road.
Diabetes is one of the fastest growing diseases of adolescents now.
Fast food, computer and cell phone activities taking place of riding bikes, soft drinks, horrific school lunches provided by fast food conglomerates and high stress all make diabetes a fast growing issue.
I am happy that this girl is alive. I am not happy that she has a disease that is caused by a fast-paced, low exercise, high stress, crappy food society.
If you find yourself stressed, eating high sugar meals, processed meals, not exercising and fast food frequently, you may find yourself waking in a hospital bed with a diagnoses of Diabetes.
