I am a retired Psychotherapist living in the beautiful Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, England. I became an Author so that all my knowledge does not go to waste! Thus, I wrote "Emotional Health for Emotional Wealth", "Pre-Marital MOT: A Relationship Inspection" and am currently creating my Little Book Series of Emotional Health for Emotional Wealth and the first book is "Sexual Abuse & Incest" now on Kindle and about to be available on Ipads, etc. My training and experience is available via my website:
When I was first diagnosed I went into grief and cried for two weeks before I could face going to the doctor.
My type 2 diagnosis was 8 years ago and I was put straight onto insulin injections as I was so poorly. With all that I now know I realise that I have a strong family history of diabetes, was diagnosed as pre-diabetic 30 years ago and no one ever explained the implications of that so by the time I found out I had already gotten nerve damage in my feet.
I am currently reading Diabetes without Drugs by Suzy Cohen RPh and have been horrified to find out about alloxan and what it might have been doing to my pancreas over the years. Why has no one explained to the public about the potential toxicity of white flour and it's products? I understood brown was better but not that white might actually be bad!
