End of the free ride.

I lived the good life until December 2005. After two weeks of mysterious illness and weakness, I collapsed and regained consciousness in hospital. I was diagnosed as severe type 2 diabetic and went immediately onto insulin. I rebelled frequently and found myself back in hospital before I finally gave in.

I look back on that day and count my blessings, that 14 years later....I am still here.
