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.

Format: Paperback
All the stories in this book have something that anyone with diabetes, or who loves someone with diabetes can relate to. But the book does not simply disclose the hardships living with diabetes can cause, it offers inspiration that can help you face any form of adversity head on. This book teaches us that the reality checks life deals us don't have to defeat us but can be very empowering.

I recommend this book to any woman (or man) struggling with diabetes -- but ESPECIALLY to parents who have a child with diabetes. I also recommend this book to those in the non-diabetic community looking for inspiration because this book is not about diabetes -- it is about courage, determination, and the ups and downs that come with the journey to success.

If you have lost your mojo to diabetes, or anything else in life, this inspiring book will help you get it back.
