Junk Sick: Confessions of an Uncontrolled Diabetic
on March 16, 2009
Norman Savage's book is honest, insightful, and blunt. It does not romanticize type 1 diabetes in any way. His life doesn't portray type 1 the way clinicians want it to be. But it is a catalyst for many of the choices (or avenues) we take as we live with type 1. I was diagnosed with it at the age of 12 in 1978.
It's all about surviving. And not being perfect along the way. Thank you for writing this book, Norman. You tell it like it is. For anyone interested in knowing what a life with chronic illness is like, this book is for you.
