If there are two things that definitely don’t seem like they go together, it would be nerd and fitness. I can definitely attest to that – a year ago, I had never been an active person, I’d avoided organized sports at every turn and my idea of exercise was racing from one side of a convention center to the other. Of course, all of this changed last May when I ended up in the hospital, was diagnosed with type two diabetes (my blood sugar levels were off the charts!) and told that I needed to make some big changes. My diet took a complete 180 turn, I was suddenly on medication I had to take three times a day and I was giving a little device to check my blood sugar.
As some of you may know, back in May, I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. I was at the hospital, dealing with a kidney stone, which is fairly common for me unfortunately, when one of the nurses that was taking care of me asked if I was diabetic. I told her, not that I was aware, and she told me I should see a doctor because my blood sugar was astronomically high. Not good. I got myself to the doctor and was promptly diagnosed.
