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.

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.

Words have the power to move nations, yet, so many deny its capacity to also destroy; even more importantly, our lack of willingness to understand its impact in our everyday lives.

It has the power to heal, and the power to invoke pain; the power to educate, as well as to mislead; the power to persuade, and the power to prevent; the power to succeed, and the power to cause chaos; the power to free; the power to keep in emotional bondage; the power to keep an entire community stagnant; the power to reveal one’s maturity level, as well as to create monsters; the power to uplift, and the power to demolish another’s dreams; the power to feed minds, as well as go over people’s heads. Words can lead you, or it can follow you for the rest of your life. Words love, discriminate, decimate……………

Where are the parents? Word-up….

How could anyone deny the power that words have over human kind. They are NOT just “words”, words have meaning, and within those meanings comes the manifestation of energy, and can be of great benefit to those who know how to harness it’s power; or if not, be completely consumed by it’s fire. Words are the true Ying and Yang. One word omitted can change one’s life forever. One word uttered can be one person’s joy, and another’s affliction.

We constantly try to defend the usage of our chosen words, not knowing their weight, magnitude, significance, scope or even it’s might. We are unable to take a mental panoramic view of what we create, with the mere use of our mouths. Selective memory now comes to our aid; however in the end, our denial’s hard work shall be for nothing, because reality eventually brings truth to the surface.

We get educated only to graduate ignorant. Memorizing words from text books to regurgitate those same words later in life, yet still have no clear understanding of what they mean. Regurgitating big words does not necessarily make one “intelligent”, or give one character; neither does allowing your definitions of life be defined by interpretations of a few “great” authors. Can you compare all that data inside your mind, against your life challenges, experiences and produce any wisdom?

As some are kind enough to dig in their pocket to give money to those who are in need, I say to you…. also dig deep inside your heart to give a kind word or two to those who need to hear them.
