Featured Interview


My guest is Chrystal from L.A.. She is just one of many positive diabetics making a huge difference in the diabetes community. She is a chemist, and diabetic activist. After Chrystal's diagnosis of type 2 diabetes in November 2007, she created SexyDiabetic.com; and donates a good portion of her time connecting and sharing experiences, both inside and outside the online diabetic communities.


Chrystal has shared with us her personal experiences living with diabetes; her role in the diabetic community; some of her current diabetic project she's working on during black history month.


We talked about some of the struggles we we face, getting the African American communities and all other people of color educated on the dangers of diabetes; as well as the fears and discrimination that still exist for diabetics today.

Richard A. Vaugn


For 2012 I thought it would be wonderful to start the year off with a positive interview!


My guest is Richard A Vaughn. He has written an awesome book called "Beating The Odds - 64 years of Diabetes Health". In this book, he takes us on a journey through his diabetic life.


From the moment he was diagnosed with type 1 at the age of 6, all the way up through completing his masters degree, @ a time when people thought diabetics shouldn't go to college (because diabetes was considered a disability then).


Richard also talks about his wonderful family and grand children, in addition to participating in the Joslin Medalist Study, funded by the JDRF & National Institute of health..


Richard is definitely an inspiration to us all. He has showed us insulin dependent people, how to live healthy emotionally & physically by example, with either no, or the least amount of complications possible; coming from a time when life expectancy for a diabetic was no later than 40 years old.

Diabetic PlayList

*

What's in your headphones? We all know how important exercise is to any diabetic, however, the music you exercise to is also just as important too! Music can make the difference between a 3 minute workout, and a 30 minute workout. Personally, I am an oldies guy, and my musical tastes are pretty eclectic and diverse. The above playlist consist of music I am listening to on my Anddroid when I exercise or power-walk. As my mood changes, so shall the playlist.

Neumann

I had this article saved for awhile and forgot to post it. Do you remember the article I’ve written awhile about ketoacidosis, and mentioned Madeline Kara Neumann? I’ve also posted some news coverage obtained via Youtube. Well, to make a long story short, instead of taking their daughter to the emergency room, like any good loving parent would; both parents decided to pray over their child instead of calling the ambulance. Their daughter Madeline died as a result of undiagnosed diabetes. The religious has long been protected by the law for these kinds of stupidity, and this shift in the court system was a long time coming. To bad thousands had to day before this change happened. Both parents were rightfully convicted of murdering their children. You can believe what you want to believe about *God etc. But this is a perfect example NOT to impose your belief on others, because now it is not *Gods will, it’s your will. Read the story here.

 






This is exactly how I feel. But from a gay diabetic point of view. So for those who think what I’m doing isn’t real? For those who think I never had both my eyeballs cut open, and had implants put in, despite that fact there were witnesses. Or those that think I don’t know what I’m talking about (despite my 5.9 A1C, despite me being involved and the community, videos, interviews,and your doing absolutely JACK SHIT but wagging your stupid gullet!?)? Kindly Go Fuck Yourself and watch this video. Evil Christians, this goes for you to.. Because I don’t need to convince others about what I believe, because what I know can be easily be found any book, if people would just pick up a 2013 diabetes book, instead of a 2,000+ year old book. You won’t find any harsh judgements in a diabetes book I’ll tell you THAT!


Love, Yogi
