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



Yep, Deb Butterfield is the one you are thinking of. In fact I'm pretty sure
she had two transplant's, after the first failed. Have you read "sweet
Invisible body"? It's by Lisa Roney and another of my favourites. I left
"needles" on the bookshelf for ages as I didn't like the sound of the title
but once I began I don't think I put it down till I reached the last page!
It's funny cause my partner and family think it must depress me when I read
these books and they can't seem to grasp that I actually find great comfort
and interest in them. However, I "mentally" am aware of how many diabetic
texts I read :)  I can't say I'm not obsessed, as the very nature of the
illness and treatment means I have to be. But perhaps it's more to do with
the negative tones "obsession" brings about?
