Issue 15 of Sweet Life
I know we might not technically know each other as friends, but each time we finish putting together an issue of Sweet Life I get so excited to share it with you: it feels like sharing a gift with friends.
This issue is no different. When I was first diagnosed with diabetes, I remember thinking, “Thank heavens I’m 25 and not a child or a teenager – that must be so difficult.” Being diagnosed as an adult meant that I could understand all the many faces of diabetes and make the right decisions for me – and my health.
But diabetes in children – especially Type 1 diabetes – is a reality for so many people, young and old. That’s why we’ve dedicated this issue to all the kids (and young adults) with diabetes, and the family and friends who care for them and share their lives. We talk about exercise, and diet, and the stigma and emotions surrounding diabetes: I think there’s a little something for everyone in this issue, no matter your age.
Our last issue of the year will be in November, and we’ll be talking about diabetes in the workplace. If there’s anything in particular you’d like us to explore, please let me know by emailing me on firstname.lastname@example.org. This is your magazine, and we want it to be as helpful as possible.
Until next time,
Sweet Life Magazine
