    I’ve lived with type 1 for over 28 years now. Some of the things I used to do – I barely remember. This post, and a book like this, brings back memories up from the crawlspace of my memory.

    This books sounds interesting; I love reading diabetes memoirs (being a newly diagnosed T1)! It is on my reading list now, and maybe it’ll be easier to find a copy if I’m a lucky winner :-) . Thanks, DMBooks!

    DM books: A patient of mine once brought me in an old copy of Elaine Stritch (Jack Donaghy’s mother in 30 Rock)’s autobiography “Am I Blue?” which is also still available used online. Since I don’t have diabetes, and can never really know “what it’s like”, I think of reading these books as part of my job.

    My youngest son was diagnosed 12 years ago at the age of four. I have two Aunites and a cousin also with Type 1. We added up the total years on insulin for three of the four a few years ago and it was 90 years! DMBooks.

    I too wonder what happened to the author. Having tested around 25 to 30 many times over the last 38 years I can relate. I’d love to read this book! . DM BOOKS.

    I remember checking this out from the library when I was diagnosed (1986). It wasn’t the best read for a newly dxd teen ;) but at the time there were very few books with patient perspectives. Glad that has changed over the years!
