I think that my diabetes is a bit like the personification of David Carradine as the character Kwai Chang Caine in the series Kung Fu. Some of you may have no memories of his iconic role as a Shaolin monk in the wild american west. I'd like to explore the theme of how my diabetes is personified by Carradine in this role.
|David Carridine as|
Kwai Chang Caine
So my Diabetes is Caine. It has a way and I must recognize that way if I am to attain peace and health in my life. I must learn that way. That way is how my body behaves with diabetes, it ranges from how my blood sugar reacts to carbs to what happens when I take my medication and exercise.
|Don't get Caine Upset!|
So my Diabetes is like Kwai Chang Caine in Kung Fu. It has a very specific "way" and when I follow the true path of my Diabetes I will have harmony and health and happiness in my life. But if I step off the path, my Diabetes will reach out and totally Kung Fu me.
