MY SWEET LIFE: Successful Women with Diabetes
S. Adler, PhD, CDE
This book is a collection of life stories - each chapter written by a highly respected successful
woman with diabetes. This group of diverse women share their stories how they find balance between managing their careers
and/or family AND managing their diabetes.
The book is compiled by Dr. Beverly S. Adler who is also one of those women. "Dr.
Bev" as she is better known, is a clinical psychologist and Certified Diabetes Educator in private practice, specializing
treating patients with diabetes and also has had type 1 diabetes for 37 years. All those years ago when she was diagnosed,
there were no role models with diabetes for her. This book is geared for women with diabetes who need
role models who can inspire them. The book is written for the newly diagnosed woman with diabetes who is overwhelmed with
her diagnosis. Or, for the woman who has had diabetes for a while, but can also benefit from uplifting, inspirational stories
to encourage and motivate self-care (especially if they already are trying to cope with some complications).
She is joined by
23 contributing authors who are all women of exceptional accomplishments! Each story is unique and heartwarming, as these
very special women share their triumph over diabetes. The reader can learn how the women's experiences with diabetes helped
to shape them into who they are today. The theme running through the book is that "diabetes is
a blessing in disguise."
This book is inspirational, motivational, and uplifting!
