    I love to see books like these written by non-professionals. It gives us all a fresh look at the daily lives of those who have to suffer under the ravages of a disease that is not fun to think about.

    I like to hear the perspective of the actual people and families that have to deal with this problem – as well as the unique ways they find to cope.

    Sometimes the precious tidbits of information that are found are just what someone needs and you may not find such gems in a strictly
    ‘professional’ book.

    Thanks for reporting on this

    DMBooks….As a single woman raising my Type 1 grand daughter i could sure use a few tips right about now, diagnosed 3 years ago everything has been going smoothly, until recently, i think were hitting some rebellion against this disease, that point where she’s just tired and wants a break, sure could use some tips on how to help her from a parents perspective, ive heard everything the Dr’s and nurses say at her visits and it’s not changing, i’m sure it’s a phase alot of the kids go through but sometimes i feel like i’m saying or doing the wrong things to help her.

    I am still barely treading water in the T1 world. I started following the D-Mom Blog about a month or so ago. It has been wonderful for me. My daughter, Charlotte, is 6 years old and diagnosed in February. It was the scariest day of my life! She was in DKA and we had no idea! I just could no wake her up. After a week in the PICU, we are home trying to cope with our new reality. I’ve done some reading, but I would love to read this book too! Using the DMBooks, I am keeping my fingers crossed that I’ll be reading this sooner than I thought! Thank you so much for this giveaway! And to all those living with CWD, thank you!
