    Spiders, peas and most of all diabetes!
    Never been ill in my life until 1/1/16 when I was admitted to hospital with a suspected stroke. This was quickly ruled out but over the next few hours I was diagnosed with Bell's Palsy, type 2 diabetes and 2 aneurysms were found in my brain. Quite a shocking start to the new year but coming to terms with it now, largely due to the support and advice I've found in this forum.
