WHAT CAN BE FUN ABOUT DIABETES?

Not much but we have to make the best of a bad job!

Although this dates back to 1985 the author recounts her worst hypos and the effect diabetes had on her life. Having had bad hypos too I think this book is a “must read”. It is certainly an easy read and here is a review.
The bad news is it is out of print. Fear not, look for it in the usual book sites and itregularly appears fpr a £few.

Not even I can go so far as to say any hospital is fun, but St George’s is good. I was taught to speak as you find and I have received my diabetic treatment and other treatments there for the last few years and keep going back because I do not think I could pay for better.
Look it up on Wikipedia to find out all about it but if you are a diabetic who is looking for more from your clinic you have the right to choose your clinic and my advice is to choose St Georges. I get all the time and help I need and nothing is too much trouble.
Part memoir, part sports adventure, Not Dead Yet tells the inspirational story of Phil Southerland’s battle with Type 1 diabetes and how from diagnosis to sheer determination he beat all odds and turned his diagnosis and his passion for cycling into something good for others. From winning the Race Across America to now managing a world-class cycling program, his journey on and off the bike is changing the way the world views diabetes. You need to get this the same way as Metal Jam but I happened to meet Phil and did not know who he was till afterwards as he was such a modest and friendly chap.
