Bloodwork: Married to Diabetes for Six Decades explores how diabetes affects your body, your psyche, and your lovelife. Set in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the birthplace of diabetes research, Merrin finds herself trapped and terrified in Children's Hospital, which she calls, "The Diabetic Factory."

But Merrin is not a whiner. She has spunk and grit to survive two marriages, a fistful of operations and the "Big Three"—Breast Cancer, Heart Disease, and Diabetes.

Readers will root for Merrin as she achieves self-actualization and recognizes her own strength, quesitoning a culture of treatment and research in which diabetics make a "better study than a cure."
