When I read a book called Chicken Soup for the College Soul, one of the stories was about a college student with diabetes. It was interesting. Has anyone read the book? If not, I recommend that you should read it.
I did not have diabetes yet when I was in university. I can't begin to understand the whole ramification of moving out of the home you grew up in, being far away from your family and friends, settling into residence, meeting new people, feeling like you're all alone in a sea of thousands...all that, WITH diabetes!! FRIGHTENING!
I remember getting "care packages" from both home and from my grandmother. Those care packages, stuffed with favourites were an anchor.
