"An understanding of diabetic emotion over life defining moments. Bridging the gap between professional understanding and who we are."
"If all 371,000,000 of us #diabetics jump up and down at the same time, we can shake the world into understanding. Every Thursday @ 19:00 GMT share!"
"I tell you how messed up diabetes is: the medical community actually looks at you funny when your blood sugar is level. - He must be cheating, they think to themselves."
I wrote this book because I kept getting ill and the hospitals could not make me better.
I wrote this book because they kept telling me to make myself better, but I couldn't and my world fell apart.
I wrote this book because I'd lost four good jobs already, and I kept finding myself in the street not knowing who or where I was.
I wrote this book because the Diabetes Industry kept telling me just to have some more insulin.
Then they told me things were a lot worse than I ever could have imagined. – So I figured things out and I made myself better. I wrote this book for you.
Interview with the Author
How did you come up with the title?
The title is a reaction to the development process, in which a reader reacted with difficulty to the working title 'The Big D: life as an everyday diabetic,' at which point I became aware of the absurd politically correct term, 'A person with diabetes.'... continue reading

A book that will stay with me forever.*****
It made my eyes fill up with empathy and emotion, yet at the same time laugh out loud, loud enough for my husband to stop what he was doing and ask what was tickling my fancy!! This book actually made me talk to my husband more about my own past experiences, about the good moments and also the bad ones. Sometimes I read the same page twice. Not because I hadn't read it properly the first time around, but because for the very first time in my life I felt that I had never really gone through these emotions all on my own, someone somewhere out there was jumping on and off the very same ship as me! I felt at home. Paul Cathcart is a pure genius and this book is a must buy for anyone living, teaching and wondering, what does it really feel like to develop diabetes and live through the life that has been mapped out for them. How do they cope with diabetes day to day, week to week, month to month and year after year. This book tells it how it is and I can sum it up in the following words, breath taking, realistic and a million per cent spot on. Amazing. Rating 10/10. continue to professional reviews
