Taking a stand against your disease

Sounds crazy but sometimes I think that I am in a war situation against diabetes.

The disease and my mind are both striving to control the same resource, my body.

My brain is the benevolent ruler of the the domain. It currently control all the pieces of the body and tries to do the best job so that they are all coexisting together in harmony. It tries to keep things going and if something fails, it tries to compensate and see if others can take over.

I also want to not have to have a rigorous exercise schedule. Basically I want everything without having to work hard. Even I know that is not feasible :-)

So I will learn to be thankful for what I have rather than complain.
