Diabetes is generally a serious business…Haidee Merritt, on the other hand, has made a business out of its less-serious aspects. It is a collection of cartoons exploring the idiosyncrasies and frustrations of living with diabetes. Part comedy, part catharsis, part black humor, it’s a fascinating view through the eyes of someone coping with the disease on a daily basis—and laughing at the complexity of it all.
This is an insightful interview done with Riva Greenberg on the Huffington Post at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/riva-greenberg/diabetes-book-review_b_886216.html
Haidee calls them cartoons and I call them art but whatever you call them please laugh, cry, empathize and most of all, enjoy these often very prophetic snippets of Haidee’s lifelong dance with diabetes.
