Life without bliss – Living with Diabetes

“Happiness”  is a state of bliss; State of “just being”. A state of being without any remorse, sadness or any other negative feeling. But these days, I find it very hard to find this bliss; I feel very helpless. I have tried all the principles of mindfulness but a strange feeling of helplessness always linger around and prevent me to attain the state of bliss and the reason is a disease that is slowly destroying an icon and knocking at my door also. Yes, I am talking about Diabetes and the iconic figure is my father. He is a living legend of his time, creator of a new thought process, he sowed the seed of new thinking to unite a divided country, full of hatred, prejudice, unfairness, He established a new era of sufism that preached divine love with oneself , others and with GOD. And now he is lost in his own thoughts.

I have no connection with my dad.He is alive but he lives in a different world of his own. He is suffering with Dementia, which is progressing. It hurts me every moment to see him receding into unknown, not recognizing us or where he is. We have already lost him in a way. Now this disease is also knocking at my door.

Dementia is one of the advanced stages caused by Diabetes. My dad had been on Insulin since he was 50 and now looking back, I know for sure, his lifestyle was far from healthy. He never exercised and was always over indulging into sweets. I wish I knew then what I know now.

My last ten years had been about learning  a lifestyle that is holistic and based on healthy eating, exercise and mentally and emotionally stimulating. So far I have been fortunate to keep this disease out of the door.  But the quest is still on and I want to spread my learning to others. I want to invite you to join this quest and fight his deadly disease. Let Start this journey to a true state of bliss -A disease free state.

    1. Thanks for your kind words. Food and Nutrition is a topic very close to my heart and would like to generate public awareness about this topic. Eating right should not be a research project but given to common people who work hard every day. Community stores, restaurants and regulations should make it more transparent what goes behind and inside that package so called “Food”!!! Thanks again. Will continue working on it.
