Description 0945448813 9.0 x 6.0 x 0.5 inches From Library Journal A compilation of articles originally published in Diabetes Forecast, this book is intended to assist diabetic readers in accepting responsibility for their disease through the acquisition of good coping skills. Each of the 25 short articles speaks to the emotional impact that diabetes has on the individual and discusses how one's emotional state can influence control of the disease. Written in reassuring language, the essays discuss such topics as stress management, self-esteem, and other emotional issues. Special sections for parents on helping a child or grandchild, especially through the preteen years, are excellent. The information contained in each piece is very basic; Richard Rubin's Psyching Out Diabetes (Lowell, 1993) covers most of the same issues in more detail, but the present work would be well used in any health collection.?Janet M.
