I just finished reading Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s memoir, My Beloved World.
She starts her story shortly after being diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes as a child. Her parents are arguing over which one of them is going to give her the shots of insulin she needs to survive. As the argument goes on Sonia decides then and there that she is the one who has to give herself the shots.
It's well worth the read for people touched by diabetes. You can see my complete review here: http://www.spinningdinnerplates.com/a-hopeful-type-1-tale/
