successfully living with diabetes - mit Diabetes erfolgreich leben
What the Publisher says: In snapshots and episodes Grit Ott describes her life as a diabetic. She takes the reader with her on her journey from a childhood of utter dependency - as a girl teased by other children and pitied by grown-ups - to an adulthood as a self-confident woman who accepts her diabetes and deals with it responsibly. Instead of finding a moralizing approach, the readers of this book will profit from Grit Ott's experience, her courage and her unquenchable hope.
Grit Ott, born in 1948, is married and, after living for 15 years in Wiesbaden, where she worked as an occupational therapist for physically handicapped people, has moved back to Berlin. For 18 years she was youth coordinator of the German Diabetic Association for the Berlin area. She is also co-founder and an active member of the "Insuliner" self-help groups which now have chapters across Germany. The first chapters of "My Sweet Life" were adapted for a television documentary about Grit's stormy childhood with diabetes, which was featured on German National Television (ARD).
