Some Calls for Diabetes Help.
Good morning! I have a few requests from readers, looking for information from you guys. First up is Wil from Life After DX. He's writing another book and these are the detail about what he's searching for:
Diabetes author William "Lee" Dubois is at it again, writing a book to fill a niche that seems either un-addressed, or under-addressed. He's starting work on his next volume, this time a handbook written for "Type-3s," the non-diabetic loved ones of all of us who suffer from the various flavors of diabetes. Type-3s are commonly husbands and wives, but can be parents, siblings, other family and close friends. Both Type-1 and Type-2 diabetics often complain that our Type-3s just don't "get it" and don't "understand" us. This book seeks to address this, and Wil is asking for input.
Wil tells me, "People have been asking me for years to write something to help their loved ones better understand what it is to be diabetic, why we do what we do, what we need from our loved ones, and perhaps more importantly--what we don't need from them. I've got some pretty good ideas on what should be in this book, but I wanted to cast a bigger net. So what I'm hoping is that both people with diabetes and their loved ones will share with me their thoughts on the things that should be covered in this new book."
You guys can email Wil at firstname.lastname@example.org and send your feedback. :)
Also, another SUM reader had sent me a question about finding a good diabetes doctor in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. Here's her question:
"I wanted to know if you had ANY recommendations for a good doctor in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area? I live in Dallas but would be willing to commute a little ways if it meant someone who actually cares about my medical condition. The doctor I go to know barely listens to what I have to say and I feel all alone in trying to manage my disease. Any help or information you have in finding a good doctor would be much appreciated!!"
If there is anyone reading who is from the Dallas area and can recommend a good doctor, please do in the comments section!
Thanks for all of your help, guys!!
