I was not a big health nut. I always thought I was healthy and doing the exercise once a week was good enough to tide me over. All that changed 4 years ago. I was diagnosed with diabetes and suddenly, everything in my life started to revolve around my disease and how best I could manage it. Exercising consistently, keeping a journal for my blood sugar levels and what I was eating, ensuring my mental health was on track, taking medications on time…all of it became a means to manage my blood sugar levels.
