You buy a new red Porsche and then all you see everywhere are red Porsches, we all find things like that happen in all areas of our life from getting pregnant and then there seem to be pregnant ladies everywhere to illnesses that break into our lives and take over. I am sure as everyday people most of us just know that Leukaemia, Myalgic Encephalopathy or “ME”, Diabetes and many other conditions just exist. When one of our family or friends are diagnosed with it we then find out all we can about the illness and ways we can help. This week is all about raising awareness about DIABETES do we know what to look for? Could someone close be suffering with this? How much fundraising has to be done to find answers about this condition? Let us all support and help in any small way we can, even if it is just buying a bracelet you are helping.
I have read and talked to people about MINDFULNESS over the last few weeks and it seems to be coming up a lot.
Now breaking into diabetes I believe it started overseas in the Mental Health area and some consultants are using the method and having good results. I guess you will not know unless you try it and like a lot of therapy it will only help some, not all I am afraid. Mental Health is another issue that people do not really know anything about until it affects them in one way or another, but even then there are some that find it hard to say let alone talk about. We need to make all these things less scary so our children grow up acknowledging different illnesses and accepting them not being frightened of them.
