About: Walter F. Mish: A New Day Radio Show Producer:

I was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes in 1997 I had just gotten married in 1996 and working in management didn’t really understand about diabetes so I was not paying that much attention to my health. but i was exercising more watch my diet i changed jobs which was a hardware retail store which was a strenuous job and I lost alot of weight numbers dropped in my blood glucose readings so i felt i was healed I stopped taking my medication and seeing dr.
I went a couple of years when one day at work I thought I was having a heart attack they took me in the ambulance as they asked questions about my health I proudly announced that I was an ex diabetic, his answer was no you didn’t once a diabetic always a diabetic wow what a slapped in the face only to be told at the emergency room I was diagnosed with cardio myopathy.
A disease of the heart when the walls of my heart muscles are weakened from diabetes
So on the mend I started taking meds reguarly and I thought i was getting better but still not paying attention to my health then on august 10th 2006 I drove myself to work it was hot and we worked hard we even took a later lunch. but when i was on my way to lunch i felt light headed
I thought it was low sugar so i ignored it but when i sat for lunch my left arm kept falling down
then room started spinning i turned around in my chair and held on my boss asked if I was ok my answer was no, yes I was having a stroke I had blockage in my carotid arteries were clogged cutting off oxygen to the brain which caused me to lose use to my left side.
