Review

Every once in a while, life gives you a 'game changer.' Sometimes it s a career change, sometimes it s a romantic change, and sometimes it is becoming aware that you will now be one of millions living with diabetes. Dr. Beverly S. Adler, and the other amazing women with diabetes who have contributed to this book, have graciously offered up their own experiences with diabetes to give us another game changer. This book gives us a truthful, funny, and optimistic look at what gifts living with diabetes can bestow on us. Whether you are a newly diagnosed person with diabetes struggling to understand what this news means for you, or a 20+ year veteran who could use a little tuning up in the optimism department, this book is a fantastic resource for inspiration, motivation, and gratitude. I am so thankful for the women who shared these stories, and gave us this game changer. This book is the ultimate resource for those who want to take life s lemons and make some darn good sugar-free lemonade!.

Dear Dr. Adler,

I just finished your book My Sweet Life, Successful Women with Diabetes.

Did you ever go to a movie or read a book where you never wanted it to end??

Your book did this to me!!

Every story felt as if I was part of it and was actually living some of it!

Which as you know in a lot of these cases I've been there?

All of the stories moved me.

From your intro and your chapter which were perfect openings for this most amazing book.

To the chapters about Zippora's and Kelli's struggles and amazing successes, to the story about Alexis Pollack which took my breath away and I felt like crying when her parents divorced and then she lost her father. I was drained and ecstatic at the end for her and her accomplishments.

The last story about Hearfha Whitlow humbled me.

Here is this amazing humble, giving woman who made her life's journey into many lessons for many of us with diabetes.

Her epilogue I will reprint, frame and put up on my wall.

Dr. Adler, thanks you for this gift this book.

I've read many books in the diabetes field, and have been written up in a few but none as moving or profound as this one.

Thank you again.

Format: Paperback
It always inspires me to read about others' challenges and triumphs, and whether you're newly diagnosed or have had diabetes for decades, you'll find the same inspiration here. In full disclosure, I am one of the 24 women featured in the book, and having now read the entire book, I found my fellow women's stories each triumphal in a different way. Some women have had diabetes for only a few years, some even longer than my forty, which I celebrate this month!

For an interview with the author, and to learn more about what it takes to do one's best with diabetes, check out "How 24 Women Live Successfully With Diabetes" on the Huffington Post under my byline.

Wow! If you or a loved one has diabetes or you are a healthcare provider who works with people with diabetes, the twin compendiums, My Sweet Life: Successful Women with Diabetes and My Sweet Life: Successful Men with Diabetes, should be on your list of must reads!

These two books are the brainchild of Beverly Adler, a person who herself has had type 1 diabetes for 38 years. Dr. Adler, (AKA Dr. Bev), is also a psychologist (PhD) and Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE).

In both My Sweet Life books, each about 250 pages, Beverly has compiled stories from people who have had diabetes for a number of years. Collectively these books represent hundreds of years of wisdom around living with this VERY challenging disease.

Most of the women and men who Dr. Bev lends the pages of her books to share their stories have type 1 or LADA - Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (more closely resembles type 1 than type 2). There are sprinklings of stories from people with type 2 diabetes, but not enough in my mind as this represents about 95% of diabetes in the U.S. Maybe Dr. Bev is saving their stories for volume 3?

Many of the people who recount their years with diabetes have lived with it using, relatively speaking, much more rudimentary tools than we have available today (yes, boiling glass syringes, NPH and Regular insulin, urine testing, etc.)...and they're still relatively rudimentary, but in many respects, light years better.

In My Sweet Life: Successful Men with Diabetes, you'll hear from a sports star, Jay Hewitt, two diabetes educator stars Keith Campbell, a pharmacist, and Gary Scheiner, an exercise physiologist; a chef, Chris Smith, and a race car driver, Charlie Kimball.
