Vaccination And Type-1 Diabetes

With all the controversy surrounding the COVID-19 vaccine in Canada, and continued issues raised by anti-vaxxers, nay-sayers and all around idiots, it’s no surprise that some folks are a touch frightened to get immunized. I’m not here to advocate for vaccination or not; I believe it’s a choice that each and every person has to make for themselves. Regardless, I received my first dose last week and I wanted to share the experience with all of you.

Bear in mind that I’m not a doctor and what I point out in the video should be taken with grain of salt. But it’s important to recognize that any medication can have serious effects on someone with Type-1 Diabetes, and this vaccine was no exception for me. ☯

I am a practitioner of the martial arts and student of the Buddhist faith. I have been a Type 1 Diabetic since I was 4 years old and have been fighting the uphill battle it includes ever since. I enjoy fitness and health and looking for new ways to improve both, as well as examining the many questions of life. Although I have no formal medical training, I have amassed a wealth of knowledge regarding health, Diabetes, martial arts as well as Buddhism and philosophy. My goal is to share this information with the world, and perhaps provide some sarcastic humour along the way. Welcome!
