Peachtree, GA, July 25, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Readers will relive her childhood, when doctors sterilized and reused syringes, and treating diseases like hers could be hit and miss. Each small victory provides a celebration, whether it is learning how to inject a grapefruit with make-believe insulin or watching from a hospital bed as the Beatles debuted on the “Ed Sullivan Show.” The strides modern medicine has made can only be called immense, as this book shows how far treatment has come in diabetes, a disease with ever-increasing prevalence in our time.
A Handful of Rain, published by Dog Ear Publishing, not only introduces readers – gently and with humor – to the daily realities of life with diabetes, but also brings a sense of awe at the hope and inspiration that can uplift spirits. As a young girl, she learns how to regulate her diet but also to participate in everyday things: summer camp, piano lessons and trips to the lake. Although imperfect control of her disease eventually quietly takes its toll, the author remained optimistic that someday she would be free of diabetes. As the author writes, sometimes dreams have a way of coming true. Her journey along the way, and what happens afterward, put a human face on the devastation of diabetes and shows how inspiration can follow.
Author Carol Ward Wilson, who is legally blind, lives with her husband, Mick, in Peachtree City, Georgia. She attended Texas Christian University-Harris College of Nursing from 1971 to 1973. A Handful of Rain is her first book.
