If you had to read only one book about Diabetes THIS is the book! Extremely insightful for any Diabetics who are feeling overwhelmed or frustrated with the many different aspects that they are faced with. Down to earth. Real - not preachy. Even people not faced with Diabetes will walk away after reading it having learned something.
I needed the information in this book so badly. I wish it had been available to me years ago. Diabetes, especially when you use insulin, is not something you can easily control like a car or a computer. It's more like taming a wild mustang stallion with a mind of its own. It requires constant vigilance with no real vacation. Sometimes you think you're doing things just right, and then you test your blood sugar. Surprise! Your body had other plans.
I started reading this book when I was severely struggling with diabetes-induced depression. There were several takeaways that helped, but the most beneficial part of the book for me was the chapter on the link between depression and Type 1 Diabetes.
Not my preferred style of book. I don't like reading all about other people's problems with the disease. Not sure the book answers the burn-out question. If I am burned-out on the disease, I am not going to readily answer worksheet questions found in the book.
