Non-diabetic and diabetic readers will not only learn but be inspired to fight for their lives, distinguishing right from wrong on a daily basis with or without diabetes.  Strategizing life with a private appreciation for yourself is the main theme!

  3. Ms. Buckroth: Found My Diabetic Soul fascinating…then again, I would. Seemed almost autobiographical. I too developed diabetes…in 1959 (at age 6)…as did two of my four siblings (3 out of 5)…Novolog didn’t work for me, either…grew up in southern New England, among Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts…and spent seven years at Joslin from 1962-70…including two as a CIT. Any book that quotes “Abalaba, Gabalaba, Goombala Beesay” gets my vote. Thanks for writing it.
