I was really unprepared for my reaction to reading all the stories from women with diabetes that have been coming through my email. I am not an emotional person (for many reasons I won’t go into now…), but needless to say, tears have come to my eyes many times throughout these last two weeks as I’ve read the diagnosis stories I’m collecting for my book: Women with Diabetes, Authentic Advice on Everything from Eating to Dating to Motherhood. I love that so many women are eager to participate and share their personal stories so that other women will benefit and feel less alone! That is my hope anyway. Some of these women include Rachel Garlinghouse (check out her blog at: http://sugarspiceandmorethingsnice.blogspot.com/), Cheryl Alkon, and Kelly Love Johnson….among so many wonderful others! I am still looking for teenagers, I definitely don’t have enough stories from young women so if anyone knows of a teenage girl with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, send her my way!
