This is not Diabetes University.

This is Diabetes University...

...the everyday challenges and events of life. The people you meet, the places you go...

...the food you eat.

Learn how I found this out.

A meeting room in a hospital..

This is horrible! No... no...

No. Not me.

Diabetes is going to control my life!

I had a choice to make. I could not change the fact that I had been diagnosed with diabetes. But I could change how I responded to the disease...

At a supermarket Of course, I would have to eat differently.

But there was just as much good food to eat in the new way as in the old...

At Home I would have to test my blood sugar every day with this kit... But that was a simple act, quickly over.

Was I going to let it take over my mind?

Focus. That’s what I would do.

Focus on the good, not the bad. The bad would still be there, of course. But i wouldn’t let it take over.

Was I going to surround myself with situations that brought me down? Or with situations--and people-that brought me joy?



Volunt ee


At the rink...

I chose joy.

The Creators of this Book Shawn Shepheard Inspirational speaker Shawn Shepheard is NOT a Big Deal, but he is a big fan of Will Farrell movies (love that scene from ‘Anchorman’). He has never been on The New York Times Best Seller List, has never been featured in any award winning films, and is not a graduate of any Ivy League school. He’s just a regular guy who loves sports, family and friends, laughter, his wife, presenting, and living life to the fullest…. yes, with diabetes. To find out more about Shawn please visit (seriously, he needs the traffic).

Scott Robert Dawson Artist, writer, designer Scott Robert Dawson watched way too many cartoons as a child. In spite of this, he manages to work as a technical writer, study languages, draw his own cartoons, and generally think up new and interesting stories.
