I got new labs today. Black woman who took my blood said she was a diabetic. Also diagnosed late in life after her 2nd son. We talked about the eating and how tough it was. She asked me if I drank, I said yes, but on weekends. She said, "you gotta stop...all of it...that stuff is tons of sugar. Your pancreas doesn't know how to handle so much of it. You "men" also can't handle it. Your organs seem to really take a hard hit from it....worse than women...." as we got done and also laughing cause she had a bad year, she said, "good luck...take care of yourself..." A mother is sometimes a mother to boys and girls of all ages and races.
The way I see things, the way I see life, I see it as a struggle. And there's a great deal of reward I have gained coming to that understanding -- that existence is a struggle. - Harvey Keitel
