My life in one book title.

Welcome to day one of my trip down the rabbit hole. If you didn't catch it yesterday, I'll be participating in National Health Blog Posting Month, (or NBPM,) in honor of Diabetes Awareness Month. This means I'll be blogging every day. That is a lot of me. I apologize ahead of time for week two or three, when you will undoubtedly be sick of my constant posts!

Today's prompt was: Titles of my future book. Say you’re writing a book about your life, community, condition, or Health Activism. Come up with working titles and a quick book jacket synopsis.

Actually, I didn't have to think about this one. I've always had a title for my life in the back of my swelly brain. It is just one more piece of information I am holding onto until I can use it someday.

The title would be: "My Umbrella of Hope"

I would have a picture of me in the rain, with an umbrella made out of the word hope...or something...

The tag line would be a little trickier...hmmm...maybe...

"Protecting my family from the Type 1 Diabetes storm."

Maybe, "TYRING to protect my family from the storm of Type 1 Diabetes."

Or...maybe my book should be called:

"My Kaleidoscope Life of Worry and Joy. The many emotions of a mother with three kids with Type 1 Diabetes."

How long are these titles allowed to be, anyway?

Good thing I don't have to come up with a hard answer now. I'm sure it will be years and years before I endeavour to take on writing a book. Maybe I should take on the teen years first? (Will I even survive the teen years? That remains to be seen.)

What would the title of your book be called?

"Autoimmune Happens?"

"When Insulin Met Sally?"

Inquiring minds want to know!


  1. You are so funny! and awesome! and I love your Umbrella of Hope!

  2. First - you will survive the teen years!
    Any book you write would be wonderful and I'd be first in line to purchase it.

  3. i would like to pre-order 'umbrella of hope' please and thank you! :D

  4. I'll take two umbrella's of hope and I'd like to submit my book idea for "Quit Trying to Fix Them, They're Just Fine! (my life living in love with two amazing diabetes dudes.)
