BLOG TOUR AND GIVEAWAY OF 21 SIMPLE THINGS YOU CAN DO TO HELP SOMEONE WITH DIABETES BY C. BURBACH



Join Cherie Burbach, author of the nonfiction health book, 21 Simple Things You Can Do to Help Someone with Diabetes (Bonjour Publishing), as she virtually tours the blogosphere on her second virtual book tour with Pump Up Your Book!

Why should non-diabetics get informed? Because as much as we know about diabetes treatment today, the support from our family and friends still plays a part in how healthy we are. An understanding approach from someone who cares means everything to us. Your diabetic friend or relative counts on you to be the person in their life that “gets it” when no one else does. This book will tell you what you can do to help. Things like what you should (and shouldn’t) say, what you should learn to truly be supportive, and even how you can help in the fight for a cure. 21 Things You Can Do To Help Someone With Diabetes will point you in the right direction so you can truly support your diabetic friend.

She met lots of great people and one of those turned out to be the guy she would marry just one year later. Cherie’s new dating book, Internet Dating Is Not Like Ordering a Pizza is available now.


My Thoughts-


There are many self-help books about diabetes out there, and many of them were written by non-diabetics. There are many people that you go to school or work with may have diabetes. You can never know what they are going through and sometimes you do not support them when they need it. Cherie’s book is just what the Dr. ordered. I have a friend who is a diabetic and she has gone through some rough times. She has been on insulin since she was two years old and she is now sixteen. She often mentions to me that no one “gets it”. I thought I understood her feelings,until I read this handy little book. The twenty one tips are concise and easy to read. Since the author is a diabetic, she knows what it is all about. She included her own life stories and how she handled her diabetes. Many people do not know what the disease is all about and tip # 1 is very important. She says that it is very important to get educated about the disease and then you can be more supportive of the person with diabetes. So if you know someone who is diabetic or someone who just got diagnosed with the disease this book is an excellent resource.
