A Brave New World

I had a physical last week. I had blood work done just as a precautionary measure. I got the results this morning.

I am a Type II Diabetic.

I was stunned. I figured at some point in my life I would be diagnosed as such; I just didn't think it would be at age 27. I do know that it was self-inflicted - too much junk, too much sugar, too much soda. That is going to have to change in a big damn hurry. I have sort of gone through all the stages of mourning in the past 3 hours - I have cried, punched walls, lashed out, become contemplative, and even joked about it. But the fact remains the same - life will never be the same ever again.
