Though I have never watched Paula Deene, except on a rare occasion, I can comment on being diagnosed as a diabetic. It took me over a year to just admit that it wasn't a fluke with the testing. the first three months, were exhausting. It is NOT an easy diagnosis to receive. I was majorly depressed, as I felt I had received a death sentence. I didn't tell anyone for over a year because I was so ashamed. I just wasn't thinking straight, that's all, just wasn't thinking straight.
Now, here SHE is, hawking food that is not good for you except when eaten, on occasion and then in moderation. Food that actually was her trademark. She finally decides to come out, will have a story to tell and who knows how many lives will be saved, how many people's eyesight will be saved, legs will not have to be amputated.... No one knows what good will come of this, but I think she is brave for coming out publicly, and if the medication is a good one, more power to this link up. Maybe....Perhaps....this is the medication that she took that helped her get her diabetes in control. Just saying.
I wish her well, as her new lifestyle has to be difficult.
You may have had a lot of unfair things happen, but when you look back over your life, remember something good that has happened for you. Replay the good memories. Joel Osteen
