Diabetes Can’t Stop Me Book & Diabetes Dino+Dragon Soft Toys

$49.95

Life with type 1 diabetes is not easy. For children and their families, the relentless daily management tasks can become overwhelming and it can be an emotional roller coaster for everyone. As a person living with type 1 diabetes since childhood, and working in diabetes for many years, I wanted to offer families a resource which takes some of the stress and worry out of managing diabetes, allows children to see themselves in the story, to have their worries heard and realise they are not alone. The message of the story is that finding other people who understand what it’s like to live with diabetes, can make all the difference and you never have to do it alone.

Growing up with type 1 diabetes since childhood, working as a social worker and having hundreds of conversations with families about their daily lives with diabetes over my 16 years managing the online counselling service I founded – Diabetes Counselling Online – all led to the creation of Diabetes Dino, writen when I managed the counselling service – (please note this service and the links in the book are no longer operating but you can find the archived website here.)

This package is for the print version of the book plus both the Diabetes Dino and the Diabetes Dragon toy, who both come with brightly coloured spots on their tummies to reflect where insulin injections, pump sites and continuous glucose monitor sensors may be situated. This helps in educating and supporting your child with their diabetes management regime. They also have pump/CGM pockets!

You can find the book alone here if you would rather not purchase the toys as well.

I hope you and your child enjoy reading and playing with Diabetes Dino® and Dragon, and that they can help you to have a calmer, happier and healthier relationship with diabetes.
