I had a chance to meet Scott Bennet in person for the first time in the summer of 2012. Previously, I had only read some of his posts on his blog Arden's Day about the life of Arden, his daughter who lives with type 1 diabetes. When I met… Continue

I recently had the pleasure of meeting fellow TuDiabetes member and comic extraordinaire, Nomi Kane, in person. Nomi creates comics on a variety of topics, and she gave me her book Sugar Baby to take a look at. Sugar Baby is about a young girl with type 1 diabetes and her everyday experiences, both those specifically diabetes-related, and others which are not.
I really enjoyed it! I must admit that I don't… Continue

I have said before and I will say it again, I was pleasantly surprised by Leighann Calentine's new book Kids First Diabetes Second. I had seriously wondered how someone relatively new to diabetes would handle an entire book...okay Leighann is not a newbie but sadly we have been on this block a few more years and as I have said, I have become crass over the years. As I said previously, she handled it fabulously! Again, I think this should definitely be given to all newly diagnosed, anyone… Continue

OK, for the first week of my virtual book club we supposedly read the first sections of the latest edition (2011) of "Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution" by Richard K. Bernstein, M.D. -- through page 54.
I have always enjoyed hearing his amazing success story (page xiii) and this time was just as touching and inspirational as my previous readings. That he has not just survived T1 since 1946, but has also both thrived and helped so many other diabetics is quite… Continue

It's been a whirlwind this week -- lots of events, all good, one after the other.
First: my book is back on track! If you didn't know it, here's the back story: back in 2009, I signed a book contract with a publisher I once worked for to write 100 Questions & Answers About Your Child's Type 1 Diabetes, part of a wide-ranging patient education series this publisher had developed when I worked there in 2003. The "gimmick" of the series is that the questions are addressed… Continue

Diabetes is not only a condition you treat with insulin, oral meds, diet and/or exercise. Diabetes, as a chronic condition, takes an important toll over our emotions: it's simply hard to deal with something that won't go away ever no matter what... you can control it but you can't remove it (not yet, at least).
Dr. Polonsky has been studying this for many years and is one of the… Continue

It's been a while since I've read such a great title about diabetes.

I have kept a marginally neat, but stunningly accurate and complete logbook of my numbers, doses and meals since January 1, 2009. *pat on back*
14 day average is down a little too.
