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.

As I walk past groups of people who make indignant remarks; proudly uttering their hurtful slurs; listening as each one takes full enjoyment of ridiculing a precious spirit whom they do not even know, sneering simply because I am different.

The laughter increases, polluting the air with arrogance and vulgarity; while deep down inside themselves, their subconscious tries to hide their own nothingness.

I am so saddened that despite how much positivity I manage to create, or good works I accomplish in my life, there always exist those who consistently try and discourage. So sad that ignorance always seem to get in the way, of finding out what a great person I truly am.

Whispers to my left; whispers to my right; whispers in front; whispers in the back; whispers on the bus; whispers on the train; whispers as I walk; whispers at the supermarket; whispers at the laundry; good Lord whispers in church too.Thank you Father for my strength.

Morning has come once again, my face, skin, thoughts, soul, essence, and mind has not changed……..

I am still me.

My heart shall rise from its emotional misery, like the mythical Phoenix, emerging from it’s burning ashes. I shall spread my flamed wings and fly with a renewed spirit. I will leave behind the burdens of my afflictions, in the charcoal and debris where they belong.

I do not bare the need to conform in order to fit in. I will not give up my right to be who I am, in order to have friends. I will not altar my way of being, in order to be (conditionally) loved by anyone. I will not surrender my heart’s right to have an opinion. I shall not allow any one’s lack of intelligence, to indirectly influence in my life.

With every fiber of my being, I reject all negativity in hopes that I can be of service to others; regardless of who, or what they are.

I Am My Own Hero.
