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.

First I have to say that, this was my second time attending the bronx health fair. This years event was truly special. I REALLY had even more fun then the last. The performers really out did themselves this time; you guys were AWESOME!!! Each and everyone of you has done a great job. Thank you so much for making it a day I will never forget. About 2 weeks before the event, I decided to volunteer. I got a chance to meet Melinda Vargas who’s also AWESOME!! Melinda, including other ADA staff members supervised the event. There was lots of dancing, and more dancing, interaction, participation, workshops, freebies, testing, food, & even a couple awards were given. Companies from Colgate to Novo Nordisk were present. If you did not come to this years Feria De Salud, I’m sorry to say that you blew your chance to have not only experience a great time, music and laughter; but a chance to be with hundreds of diabetics just like us.

The immediate above and below pictures, is without a doubt my favorite pictures. This is not only what fun is all about, but the ability to free our spirits on order that we can reconnect with who we are as a people. If more people inspired to live this kind of energy (like these two wonderful people), I believe we would have a lot less drama in our lives. Just my humble opinion. Try smiling for one day, it will make a difference. Bless these two. :-)

Unfortunately, I have no idea who she is. However, she performed @ the fair, and did an awesome job.


That’s it!! Hope you’ve enjoyed them!
