Diabetes is a very sensitive topic for me. Apart from the fact that I have family members who suffer from it, I did develop gestational diabetes when I was pregnant. This is a very common thing, I was told, but as I was older, I was afraid it would lead to more complications. In the end, I had to have a C-section because I was told my baby would be too large. However, I had managed to control the blood sugar levels to the point that when Cole was born, he was of normal weight. Still, those who develop gestational diabetes are far more likely to develop diabetes in the future, around age 50, so we must constantly monitor ourselves. I have put myself on a healthier diet now, one with less sugars, to help my body stay in a healthy state, yet that thought remains. Diabetes has affected and continues to affect many people's lives, so I believe that this is a worthy cause and again, I'm proud to be a participating author.
If you're interested in doing your part, please place a bid here. The auction for the loaded Kindle Paperwhite is a ONE DAY ONLY auction taking place on the 28th May (starting at 12.21 A.M. and ending at 8.58 P.M.). Don't miss it!
