The Mindful Psyche: Controlling Life One Choice at a Time


The Mindful Psyche

I woke up one morning blind in my left eye. The whole experience felt scary and unpredictable to my expectations as a healthy person. Being a human genetically dispositioned with the care of my health conditions requires a regimen of necessary medications, diet, and exercise. Whether I can manage my blood sugar levels remains up to my willingness to care. I care enough to use meditation for calming purposes leading me away from fears and anxieties. As I get older, more health risks present their potential in my everyday life.


My blindness resulted from a TIA mini-stroke caused by a rogue piece of plaque that traveled into an artery in my eye. How we humans take care of ourselves remains a strong sense of obligation to our peace of mind. I continue to learn how to regimen a psyche worthy of livable circumstances and situations. Decision-making sense requires a dedication to my causes and effects for living a deserving life. I do best when challenged to learn new things about living right.


Taking Metformin twice a day is a small task compared to the alternatives I face as a diabetic. Now that I experienced a mini-stroke, I take more medications daily to manage my present and future health. I lived fifty years eating whatever and feeling healthy. My body’s transformation happened overnight, and the lifestyle change felt necessary from the instant my health turned risky. I eat to live now—not live to eat. To lose my life is a matter that I will never allow to be the fault of my habits. Portion control and regimenting health alternatives are vital agents for maintaining my healthy sugar intake and preventing further harm.


I needed additional medications to ensure that life’s health problems do not rule my mentality. I choose the path traveled by decidedly accepting necessary change over any indulgence or sensations. The stroke that changed my understanding of life forced truths atop my mindset lasting beyond mere thoughts of snacks or high carbohydrate foods. Medical professionals have limited times to save us from ourselves. The occurrences that lesson our practice for living life well have signs to deter harmful fate. We can destine our paths traveled and use a humbled sense of existence to prevent less time on Earth.


I want to live to be a one-hundred-year-old man with a determined psyche and the history to prove worthy of my life lived.


The diabetes balancing act has advantages and disadvantages in my life. In one day’s dietary plan, I intake up to 90 carbohydrates eaten into each meal - breakfast, lunch, and dinner. To awaken blind in one eye is a disadvantage but controlling my sugar also maintains my weight. I aim for learned behaviors that keep my psyche well emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Anything less than healthy will cause me problems to bear, but I have to do work for accomplished care.


My mentality must act responsively over actions and attend to a better lifestyle. I ignored the obvious sign that change was a necessary step forward and paid its cost in a scare. Foolishly, I waited for improved vision and went to work. My best advice is to go directly to the emergency room when your health becomes an unexplainable situation.


I have the type of mentality better equipped to care for myself, and when I cannot do life alone––I have physicians who leave no doubts that they care. Luckily, I found the Dulan and Moore Dulan Family Wellness Center in Lebanon, Ohio.


Miami Valley South Hospital is a care facility located in Centerville, Ohio. The staff educated me and took great care of my psyche after experiencing such a need for healthcare. I feel blessed to know the pre-seeable future as a health-wise mentality leads me gratefully forward without fear or anxiety bearing down on my emotional self-being.
