    Casey Hawley has this to say about her new book Loving and Living with Your Diabetic Spouse: "I wish someone had handed me this book when I married a diabetic. I hope it will help diabetics and their spouses who want to live life to the fullest but need some ideas and encouragement to achieve that very possible goal." Loving and Living with Your Diabetic Spouse is the manual for spouses of diabetics. This enthusiastic approach to living successfully and happily with diabetes encourages couples to take appropriate steps for diabetes care, to keep diabetes in perspective and to live well. Practical how-tos in the book offer the spouses of diabetics guidelines for achieving mutual happiness. Everything from each spouse's responsibilities, to care for a diabetic high or low, to sexually related subjects are covered in this helpful book. Casey Hawley offers this very personal yet universal message to any spouse of a diabetic: "Diabetes today is not the diabetes your grandmother told you about. The diabetic lifestyle is a healthy lifestyle for anyone, and partnering with your spouse to adapt to diabetes may even have benefits for your own health! Be informed, be encouraged, and be pleasantly surprised by all you will learn from this valuable information about diabetes and your marriage."
