Rhossili. Photo taken by Darren Williams
On Wednesday I invited my computer “doctor” wizard to join me for a day’s ramble along Rhossili and the Gower coastline. This was not any invite, this highly talented computer expert had been recovering from a near fatal diabetes coma. I have known him since the early 20’s as a capable, computer expert who repaired, recovered and networked all our Cyber Cafe computers. He had always been very over weight and in his own confession ‘hated’ himself and his weight.
His job: – Sitting for up to eight hours a day, looking after College computers. He was found a few months ago, unable to get out of his car in the College car park, wrongly diagnosed and eventually was taken into intensive care, where the nursing profession fought to stabilise his insulin levels. He was suffering the worst type of diabetes which had gone undetected for years.
A rude awakening to his sedentary job and lifestyle. Since this horrific life threatening incident he has sought a counsellor, changed his eating, exercise ( he walks for miles each week) and meditates. He feels so grateful to be alive and has accepted how wonderful he truly is.
Since telling me his story, I have linked him up to Dr. Das. Sharing his story hopefully, will help so many others to get the right help and keep their diabetes in check.
Do you know of anyone who would benefit from his story?.
