Overview

In this candid anthology, the authors take you on a tour of their experiences living with diabetes. This is not a technical or scientific book but one that exposes the tender emotions of living with this chronic disease. There is humor, warmth and compassion in these poems and stories written by diabetics, their families and friends. Lisa Haynes talks affectionately about her mother's feet in her poem, "Feet Like Small Children"; we learn what it's like for a mother to discover her young daughter has diabetes in Anne-Leigh Parrish's, A Whole New World"; Wilson and Kartonis take us into their playful fantasy about food in, "Living the Sweet Life"; and Cheri and Jade Brooks give us different perspectives on the same hypoglycemic episode in, "Inferno," and "Mirrors in the Sun." These are but a few of the narratives you'll find in these pages.

This is the first book of its kind to introduce you to the emotional workings of diabetes from a creative nonfiction point of view. It incorporates all aspects of diabetes, from diagnosis, to complications and, finally, survival.
