You can read an excerpt from Mary Tyler Moore's new book, "Growing Up Again: Life, Loves, and Oh Yeah, Diabetes" by clickinghere.
We think this is the best excerpt from the excerpt:
I don't think the story of my life with diabetes is a model for anyone else. There's no template to follow that will determine the course of the disease and how it affects a person's life; no one right way to manage diabetes. What I have put on paper is simply the tale of how, in the course of everyday living--dealing with the losses, the dead ends, and the triumphs that come in often seemingly random order -- I've dodged, faced, and sometimes conquered the challenges of diabetes. I'm sharing my story because it is what I have to give, shedding some light on the follies and achievements that I've racked up in my daily confrontation with the disease.
"No one right way to manage diabetes" -- read it, learn it, live it.
