Empowering book!

This is a thoughtful explanation of diabetes and it’s impact. I wish that I had this book years ago when my father was diagnosed.

After reading it I came away with a better understanding of the weight of the disease but also came away with hope and calmness about it.

In 2007, at the age of 65, I was diagnosed withType-1 diabetes. Oh how I wish that I would have had the benefit of Karli’s excellent book when I was diagnosed in order to allay my fears about dealing with the disease! Not only would I have greatly benefited from the information and advice contained in that easy-to-read book, I certainly would have strongly encouraged my family to read it. Karli did a wonderful job simply explaining the disease to those who are afflicted with it & their families.
Thanks to Karli for writing the book and to you for publishing it!
