Re: [IPk] Good News Or Not?/ Hoover quote



Pat
I keep meaning to invest in a comfy duvet to muffle the screams as mine is a
bit old now :)
The quote was actually in another book written by "William H. Polonsky"
entitled " Diabetes Burnout: What to do when you can't take anymore" It's an
American title and the ISBN is 1-580-40033-7. The book in itself is okay
even if the title is a little over-zealous! Hoover is actually a well known
author in diabetes who first developed the concept of diabetes burnout. The
quote actually comes from an article that was written for physicians so you
may be able to do further research on her work.
Two books I would recommend are:
"Showdown with Diabetes" by Deb Butterfield  and
"Needles a memoir" by Andie Dominick
Both are personal stories of Diabetes but the Butterfield book is
informative too.
