About 6 years ago I was diagnosed with Diabetes, at 33 and not that overweight it was a bit of a weird one. Although I was a bit shocked at the time, it was generally a positive experience because it helped to explain why I felt the way that I did, tired and sick.
Initially I took to the management of it and kept pretty tight control over my diet and exercise, over time though I became complacent and bad habits started creeping in.
