My dad is 74 yrs old and mom is 70

I did my bit to help them ;)

Time for a thread

My dad has diabetes for last 35 yrs and mom has it for 5 years now

My dad's HbA1c shot up to 8.9 (five years back) and his doctor recommended insulin

He was depressed at the thought of being on insulin for rest of his life

For last 30 yrs, he has taken a walk for an hour and ramdev's pranayam for 10 plus years.

He is very very disciplined in what he does. So if it's raining, he will go for a walk with an umbrella. But never breaks discipline. Gets up at 5 AM on all days, even on a Sunday ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ
So once HbA1c went so high, I adviced him 3 changes in his life style,

It was super hard to convince him on all three

He had turned vegetarian 30 yrs back for good health, not even egg, no religious reasons though

I asked him to eat chicken three times a day.
Yes starting with breakfast to dinner. Replace tea also, with chicken soup

2) Then I asked him to do weight training, as heavy as possible that u can't do more than 5 reps. Not those 50 gram dumbbells 50 reps

3) I asked him to start climbing stairs, starting with two floors
He thought Gym was for body builders and will make him bulky, climbing stairs will affect his heart as he has high BP too

For non Veg, I had to send him PHD level literature almost everyday, to show my passion on the topic

Finally he said, he will go to gym if mom also goes
For, non Veg, my mom said, better to die with old age that to change religion in old age.

So both started going to gym, for 2 yrs straight, stepped into a gym for the first time after age of 65/60

Rest, as they say is history

Today My dad's HbA1c is 6.5 with 1/4th the medicine
Never touched insulin ever

My mom quit the gym after 2 yrs on the pretext of taking care of grand children (excuse :)

But my dad is so disciplined, never broke the habit, and never feels bored as his morning 5-11am is all about fitness

Now he looks younger than me

Lot of questions about them looking much younger, it's a 3 yr old Pic and not recent one โ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธ
For the love of God, this is not a medical advice. This is a short summery of what he is doing for last 7-8 years. We had to deal with lot of complications like sharp rise in ACR, cortisol and stomach/digestive problems because of my above advice

Thankfully it was tackled much easier than taming diabetes

IMHO, he is living much active, fulfilling life than his condition 10 yrs back.

Burnout among traders , a thread
unlike what we think our brainโ€™s capacity to take multiple decisions, to handle failures, to handle setbacks and to handle negative emotions is limited

just like our bodies get tired, so does our brain

burnout for traders, applies more to discretionary traders then to system traders but it does affect everyone
It affects discretionary traders more, As for them every decision takes a mental toll,

takes away mental reserve and affects them negatively

Listening to one of my all time fav songs

I love Manoj Bajpai and RGV to give joy in my life by their movies (2001-2002) when I was going thru hopeless depression

sorry for bad print above

better here, but too many ads on this
now listening to this one,

Only a 90s kid will understand the depth of this song and will have Goosebumps,

for rest of them its just the way the world was before mobile phones and digital cameras

People actually used to fall in love, u know ;)

This stupid fight on vaccine price has to stop.

for courts to politicians are trying to score points of lower prices.

Unless we leave some money on the table for entrepreneurs and risk takers, in future there will not be any vaccine manufacturer.

Right now, priority should be
super fast vaccination campaign and govt should spend on it as much as our budget for NAREGA or some other subsidy

As cost of not vaccinating "everyone" is too high for our country and economy

Those who can afford it, should come forward for paid vaccine at market price
as determined by manufacturer and there should be an App where people can sponsor / donate for vaccination for weaker section of society (with proper tracking with aadhar)

Also in parallel Govt should run free vaccination camps roping in all govt machinery for quick results
