With generosity of spirit, ebullience, and sly humor, Mary Tyler Moore presents the intensely private, often funny, and sometimes startling story of her life with diabetes. Growing Up Again is a delightfully candid read for her legion of fans, the more than 20 million Americans with diabetes, and everyone struggling to cope with life's unexpected challenges. Mary Tyler Moore, actress and activist, relates the highs and lows of living with type 1 diabetes for the past forty years. With inspired, well-crafted prose, she drills down to the most heartfelt, yet universal truths about life—including the lives of those with diabetes. She unflinchingly chronicles her struggle with diabetes, as well as her successful rehabilitation from alcohol dependence, all while deriving gratification from her roles as an actress, mother, businesswoman, campaigner, and fund-raiser. Her revealing tales of both her successes and failures in coping with diabetes offer others with the disease guidance and inspiration through example. In the book, stories include her rebounding from a low-blood-sugar episode during a Mary Tyler Moore Show script reading after the director poured orange juice down her throat, to misadventures caused by diabetes-related vision impairment at a dimly lit party for John Travolta. She also taps into the vast diabetes research network to talk to diabetic children and adults and with leading experts who are discovering new ways to control diabetes and its complications, and pursuing new ways to cure this disease. "Her TV alter ego, Mary Richards, may have been perfect, but it’s Moore’s imperfections that make her the ideal author of this surprisingly frank memoir about living with diabetes." - Publishers Weekly

My name is Chris Cracolice I am 53 years old and have had diabetes for 48 of those years. I remember growing up with diabetes and how it not only affected me physically but mentally as well. One of the most vivid memories I have was as any child growing up in the 60's was watching Batman, Superman and Tarzan on TV. Of course the next day I would go outside and have my own adventures as being that Super Hero. One day I was being Tarzan and it hit me if I was out in the middle of a jungle without insulin I would die. This affected my self-esteem in many ways and still does to this day. I was not like other kids who could do things that I was not able to. For years I wanted to help other children with diabetes not have to go through this. A couple of years ago I came up with an idea of a child Super Hero with diabetes called Diabetic Dude. I have written and illustrated a book about Diabetic Dude with his sidekick FRED who is a glucose monitor Fast Reliable Educating Data, and his foes the Glucose Gang

This book is written to motivate diabetics, and to give their parents, families, partners and friends an insight into what their beloved diabetic thinks, and how she/he feels. Story-tellers are 6 different people who have been living with diabetes for decades, and regardless of diabetes, today as adults, live fulfilling and quality lives; work, travel, and have families of their own. First story is told by a young and successful thirty-year-old woman who describes her path: her parents' attitude to diabetes and the way it shaped her attitude in adulthood. The story of the stigmatization of children with diabetes, falling in love, going out in the evening ... and finally, pregnancy with diabetes.Second story is telling us that despite growing up in a completely dysfunctional family, a child with diabetes can grow into a healthy, responsible and positive person.Third story is told from a male angle, and is more systematic and less emotionally charged. Perspective of a 40-year-old man who got diabetes when he was a baby, is very different from the previous ones, although the problem is the same. He also describes the attitude of his parents, but he also talks about his work, and his colleagues' attitude towards his diabetes. He specifically referred to the pharmaceutical industry and alternative medicine.Fourth story is told by a woman who, at a certain point in her life, was completely dependent on others, and unable to cope with the challenges of adulthood with diabetes. This is a person who developed chronic complications of diabetes, so in this book she describes the attitude towards that fact as well. Particularly interesting in this story is her experience with falling in love and choosing a life partner, and how diabetes affected her love life.Fifth story teller is a young man who got diabetes during the period of adolescence. He gives us an insight into the feelings of a 16-year-old diabetes patient who cannot cope with the challenges that diabetes brings, and just wants to be a normal teenager. Sixth story is told by a mother of a child with Type 1 diabetes. Positive and inspiring, her thoughts, attitudes and actions should help other parents of children with diabetes to find their own path of dealing with diabetes. Through these true life stories of six real people who have been living well with diabetes for several decades, you will encounter topics such as building responsibility of children with diabetes and strength of adult character, falling in love, obsessions, overriding fears, priorities, awareness of human life span, "otherness", "caring", living by someone else's or own rules, desire for healing, self-understanding, self-worth, burnout, not accepting diabetes, feeling guilty, and many others.
