"At first I thought, 'Why would anyone who's burned out want to read a book about burnout?' But this book is really fun! Ginger has a great sense of humor. She puts a smile back on your face and gets you energized to deal with diabetes in a whole new (and realistic) way." -Gary Scheiner MS, CDE, owner and clinical Director, Integrated Diabetes Services, author of Think Like a Pancreas, and 2014 AADE Diabetes Educator of the Year

The only thing I would have liked to see more of was an in-depth look at why many teenagers and young adults go into a burnout that manifests itself as 'denial' of their condition, and how best to break free of that (it's something I personally struggled with for many years).
Overall, a great book for helping anyone who might be feeling a bit lost, unmotivated, etc. with their diabetes self-care right now, anyone who has felt that way in the past, or anyone who may feel it in the future.........in short, ANY person with diabetes!
Your motivating, understanding words jump off the pages of this book and I have grabbed and ran with them! Who knew??!! Who knew that I could allow myself to look at the numbers on my meter and not mentally or physically berate myself because of them? Who knew that a perspective existed that it was ok to admit that D is excruciatingly hard and it's ok to admit feeling challenged? Having extra sleep without feeling guilty? New to me! Scheduling a cheat day, relax day or holiday?? What the! The list goes on...
A similar feeling to that of when I first went onto a pump - I now have wings. I feel liberated, exhilarated, positive and armed with a fresh set of sparkly tools in my life toolbox. THANK YOU. Cannot wait for your next book. -- Vanessa Locke
