    On a totally different topic: In her presesentation with Hope Warshaw on the DOC, Amy said she was diagnosed in 2003, and that there was no diabetes online community at the time. But there WAS. When I was diagnosed in 1993, I found and on Usenet, and while these were wild and woolly unmoderated places with both good and bad info, and some nasty people at times, I also found there my first diabetes educator, a CDE who is now on the board of AADE. She worked me through the emotional and practical agonies of being newly diagnosed, NOT being either classic Type 1 OR Type 2 (probably a slow-developing LADA), sulfonylurea being totally useless, and going on insulin, and remains a close friend to this day.
    So while your blog and those of others, and sites like TuDiabetes and Diabetes Daily are a great refinement on what it used to be, the Usenet sites should still be remembered if only as a part of early DOC history! :-)

    I read Amy’s book in galley form, and can vouch for how great it is. But I wanted to say thanks, as always, for the props for my book, Balancing Pregnancy With Pre-Existing Diabetes, and also thanks to commenters Val and Samantha for the pregnancy book praise as well!

    This sounds like a wonderful book, and I am anxious to read it! I love to read books about Type I diabetes, and really haven’t read one written by a woman since the days when June Biermann and Barbara Toohey wrote about Type I. (I’m dating myself – I know!!! I’ve had Type I for 39 years so far.) I also know we’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover (or title) but I must say it sounds like the diabetic’s answer to a book like “French Women Don’t Get Fat!”

    Sounds great! I am interested in reading the body image stuff, because it is always a difficult issue for women, but not generally adressed with women with diabetes.
