I am a Self Made Diabetic

Well, here we go.  First, let me introduce myself, my name is Ron, I’m 44 years old and I have diabetes.  I was diagnosed with diabetes in February or March 2018 after many years of the doctor telling me that I was pre-diabetic.

Here is the deal.  The reason I’m calling this website Self Made Diabetic is that I believe that it is my fault that I have diabetes.  It was years and years of mistreating my body by eating poorly, not exercising and being overweight, being told by the doctors that if I don’t lose weight something like this would happen.  It did happen and now it is my time to take control of it.  That is what I’m going to do.  This will be my place to document my journey to recovery.

I’m hoping it will be deeply personal, funny and informing for you if you happen to be going through the same thing.

Another quick thing about me, I’m a trained chef.  While I’m not cooking for work now I am a trained chef.  I have a degree in culinary arts from The Culinary Institute of America.  There is no excuse for me not to be eating healthily.  My hope is that I can heal myself with food.  I will document it all.  So, sit back, relax, you’ll hear from me almost daily.  You can also find me on Instagram at @selfmadediabetic.
