Product Description

About the Author

Roxana is a Holistic Therapist and Hairdresser and lives in Bournemouth with her husband, two sons and two dogs. Roxana has had type 1 diabetes for several years but was mortified when her youngest son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of two. Knowledge and confidence were paramount to ensure the best care possible for her son, so she began trawling the internet to educate herself fully. Once Roxana had accepted her son had type 1 diabetes and was in more control she decided to help other parents and set up a Face Book support group. She then compiled a website to educate other parents and this paved the way for her book. Roxana has always loved writing but never expected to be writing about diabetes. She is currently working on her next novel. Roxana's interests include reading, walking with her dogs, yoga and pilates. She is currently learning to become a Reiki healer.

My child was diagnosed at the age of 5 this year. This book has helped me no end. I would recommend it to anyone that has a child with type 1. It is hands down the best, it has a point of view from other parents that are going through exactly the same situation. On top of that the Facebook page she has set is full of people that are ready and willing to help. Everyone has the same thing in common. Top marks to the writer. Definitely worth buying this book.

I would highly recommend this book to families of a type 1 diabetic child.
Honest and fact full book, I wish this book had been written 4 years ago when my son was diagnosed.
Full of useful information and real life stories from Acual families, just reading other families stories helped me to realise I wasn't alone in this type 1 journey.
This book would also be useful to educate family members and close friends and even teachers/childcare providers.
My favourite bit about this book is that there is a strong feeling that it was written from the heart and the words are from real experiences.
I would say this book is a must have for a newly diagnosed family.

If your child has type one diabetes then this book is a must read book. The author has type one diabetes and so does her teenage son so she really knows all about living with this difficult and often miss-understood condition. All the real life stories are great to read and make you feel less alone living with this condition. A genuinely great book, well worth a read for anyone who loves someone with type one diabetes, whether you are a parent, grandparent or friend.

I would highly recommend for parents of newly diagnosed children. Its a straightforward and friendly intro to the terminology, decisions, choices and lifestyle that is life with Type 1, with real life stories that are truthful, helpful, personal are reassuring that you are not alone. Thought the tone of the book was sensible and overall positive and addressed the fact that there is a huge adjustment on diagnosis that takes time, but that life can happily and successfully go on!

A wonderful and honest read. I've realised along our short journey (8 months so far) that the professionals are amazing at guiding and supporting you on what is an incredibly hard learning curve. However, the guidance and support of parents who have travelled that same path you are on is worth far far more. A superb read. Wouldn't it be amazing if one day someone in the NHS or government would agree to fund this book to every newly diagnosed T1.

Our 9 year old son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes this January. We are still very much getting used to our complete life change. This book is a great read for both newcomers like ourselves, and for those who have had to deal with Diabetes for a while.
I would certainly recommend this book, the real stories are very touching and brought a tear to my eye to read about others who had been through the same as us. Well done Roxana!!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this as it is very informative, a very well written book.
As a Parent of a Type 1 child I could relate to Roxana and all the other Parents..
Highs and Lows but above all showing that life does go on and everything in life is still achievable.
A Highly recommended read for all ...
Well done Roxana Reynolds

Would have found this book really useful years ago when my daughter was diagnosed. At the time,10 years ago, there was alot to take in as a parent. Having a book that can explain what the hospital covers, which can be read later after the shock from the inital diagnose's is invaluable. If you forget or miss information; just refer to the book.
