Balancing Diabetes: Conversations About Finding Happiness and Living Well
When a person receives a diagnosis of diabetes, he or she starts a process of adjusting and making sense of the new normal living with a chronic disease. A large part of that adjustment is figuring out how to balance diabetes with all the intricacies of a life outside of diabetes care.

Whether adult or child, type 1 or type 2, spouse or caregiver, male or female, people in the diabetes world will find themselves in this book and be inspired by the commonality of that continuing search for balance.

Sherry is a former RN - soon to be a practicing RN once more. She last practiced nursing when her first born daughter was a year old. With the birth of a second daughter she decided to focus on parenthood. Little did she know that her nursing background would become part of parenting with a diabetes diagnosis of her two year old.
The theme of Sherry's life as the parent of a child with diabetes and a nurse re-entering the workforce seems to be ‘balance’ — balance in both her life and the lives of her children, particularly that of her child with diabetes. Sherry is always seeking balance — always self analyzing and evaluating to ensure she maintain perspective and haven’t become too narrow in her focus.
