5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book EVER on what it is ike living with Diabetes! 30 August 2013
By Someone Who Gets it - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I finished the book and all I can say is "THANK YOU" and "WOW". Your stuggles mirror my five days you can not believe how many people I have told about this book! I have quoted you and watched as others go "YEAH....THAT IS SO RIGHT ON!" I can guarantee when this hits paper back.....I am buying several and I am going to give them to all the d specialists and my personal doctor..some with some quotes UNDERLINED and HIGHLIGHTED for them! I also train diabetic alert dogs and I will carry a copy of the book to hand to those that make snide rude comments about YOU DONT LOOK DISABLED! A smile and a read this and then call me we will chat!

Thank you for bearing your soul to the world and know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE EITHER!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Yep. Yep. Yep. (Laugh). Yep." 5 January 2014

A fantastic portrait of living with diabetes, including the fears, the unknowns, the frustrations, and even the positives that come hand-in-hand with living with this disease. I'm not entirely certain those with diabetes will take anything new away from this, other than saying, "Yep. Yep. Yep. (Laugh). Yep." in agreement as you read from cover-to-cover. This book IS, however, PERFECT for those living with, or in a relationship with, someone who has diabetes. It is an open door into what it is like to live with this disease, from onset on forward. As an educator in the world of diabetes, I will certainly recommend this book to those wanting to know more than just the basic understanding of the disease. Good work Paul. You beat me to it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Real life with Diabetes - Telling it Like it Is. 4 January 2014

Well done Paul Cathcart! Finally, someone has written a book on what it's REALLY like to have diabetes. Most people think living with diabetes is fairly easy - eat, take medicine and off you go. Even medical professionals think along these lines. This book goes through the true ins and outs of the disease. I highly recommend this book to everyone.

Mr Cathcart has a way with words that has helped many people to understand that they are not alone in the fight that is called Diabetes. So many times you feel alone in this disease, and fighting an uphill battle..... NO LONGER ALONE!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent account of living with diabetes 11 November 2013

Excellent read, find myself nodding & laughing at many of the things Mr Cathcart has put in this book as with being a type 1 diabetic I can certainly agree with his accounts of being diagnosed & also living with diabetes. Certainly not the usual text book book about living with diabetes.Brilliant x
