Re: [IP] Being a kid with diabetes - Way Back When


 All this brings back many of my memories also, but they are packed away in my
mind, not in my closet. LOL

 I remember a book that my mom had to buy when I was first diagnosed; it was
written by Dr. Elliot Joslin, who was a diabetes specialist before insulin was
discovered and his practice was the first to use it, also pioneered close
control of blood sugars, was the founder of Joslin Diabetes Center.

 It was a thick gray book, I don't remember the title. The nurses and doctors
went through the book with my mom and me while they were teaching us during my
six week inpatient hospital stay.
