When Meg left the hospital after her diagnosis with Type 2 diabetes she struggled with her mental health, but found that her faith and friends helped her move forward and accept her condition. With the help of her daughter, and her previous training as a nurse, she learnt how to administer her insulin injections and began building more physical activity into her daily life to lift her mood.
How Meg Gets Moving
Following her diagnosis, Meg began paying more attention to her diet and getting active to keep her diabetes under control. She has since taken up walking with her daughter, meditation, and loves to dance around the kitchen to “anything with a beat” as part of her morning routine.
In the past year, Meg has found that consistent activity has improved her mobility to the point where she is able to regularly babysit her granddaughter, including taking her to dance classes!
