This book is exactly what it says it is which is a memoir of growing up with diabetes and is not a memoir in general of Andie Dominick s sister s life, but only where diabetes has touched it This could have made for a very depressing and disjointed book but the writing is so spot on detail where you want it, brevity where an episode is necessarily included but is not interesting in itself.It s educational too I had thought that type 1 diabetes was a matter of insulin injections and balancing the [...]

This book was published in 1998, when Dominick had had type 1 diabetes for 18 years, including through her teenage years Unlike Lisa Roney author of type 1 memoir Sweet Invisible Body , Dominick s prose is spare and straightforward, making this a quick read Major themes include various aspects of the theme of family and Dominick s struggles with retinopathy Her older sister Denise, also a type 1, died of a drug overdose As her roommate, Dominick found her body and understood that Denise had a su [...]

Dominick is honest and brave for telling this story She validated many experiences of growing up with type I Diabetes among other youthful issues Bravo

In my book my main character had her eye vessels pop, she went to the doctor to help stop that from happening they performed laser surgery With the eyes vessels popping it could lead to her going blind At first I thought t hat if she continued to go to the doctor, it would stop and go away like a cold But then after reading up on diabetes I learned that most of the time it does not go away even with going to the doctor u still lose your vision but with the laser surgery it helps slow down that p [...]

This biography was awesome Having a daughter with juvenile diabetes, we can relate to the day to day struggles of control and the fear of the unknown future Many people don t know the difference between type 1 usually juvenile diabetes and type 2 diabetes Type 1 diabetics didn t get diabetes because of their diet, or the causes of type 2 diabetics This is a recommend read not only for all teens but adults as well.

The book needles really makes me think about how good my life is Andie, the main character and her sister, Denise, grow up with diabetes and have life changing problems all the time This book is filled with romance, action, and it s historical, plus it all fits into one book Needles is definitely a good to read if you like hook hangers at the end I recommend this book to everybody who loves a touching novel every once in a while.

I didn t rate this one as high, although it s on my favorite books of all time list i think the magic in this book for me might not be something everyone else could share unless you too are a type 1 but for those of us who are, it really is magical to have years of misery and pain spelled out so perfectly and simply it s not a depressing read, just hits close to home.

The book Needles By Andy Dominique was A very unique and exquisite book to me I enjoyed this book because I was walking in the eyes of somebody that I have never met The type of person I would never be Yet yet this story yet this story really touched me It was not and encouraging uplifting story at all it was very depressing and dark but it showed me that the world other than people being shot people dying of cancer War it showed me that there was other kinds of darkness in the world other than [...]

A breakthrough in diabetes means a new way to give an injection or monitor blood sugars I m not holding my breath A cure for diabetes I don t even think about that I just hope for advances in how to treat the complications of the disease Ways to prevent blindness and restore circulation A kidney transplant without a life of immunosuppressants I don t think this is hoping for too much, but a cure is too much to ask for The doctors say diabetes is manageable, so the focus is on the best ways to ma [...]

I did not personally like the book Parts of it just made me uneasy People died and the main character was talking about her suicidal thoughts, drug use, and other things My least favorite part was when the main character s sister died on the couch I would recommend this book to anyone who likes deep and weird books.

I really liked the book Needles by Andie Dominick When Andie was growing up, her sister Denise had diabetes She played doctor with her stuffed animals and dolls using the needles her sister used to her give herself a shot everyday Andie never thought that the needles would belong to her one day, she never thought she would have to give herself shots everyday for the rest of her life Growing up with diabetes wasn t easy Andie couldn t eat a lot of sweets, sometimes she had insulin reactions where [...]

Dominick draws us into her life and complex relationship with her sister, explaining what it is like to live with type 1 diabetes, both as a sibling to someone with it, and then later as someone experiencing it herself.I felt that she was eloquent enough to help the reader understand both the disease itself and importantly her subjective experience of it But she also made it clear that if you do not have it, there is no way to truly understand Some authors might say this in a way that is off pu [...]


Rachel Thornley

Needles is a memoir by Andie Dominick It was such an interesting book because you learn about diabetes just as Andie does Andie starts as a child in the book so you grow up with her and see how differently others treat people as young children with the disease to adults with it It goes through Andie s life with her sister and her relationship with her parents and husband, Doug She ends up having serious eye problems so it is all about the struggle being a diabetic can be and some of the worst sc [...]

As a T1 myself, I was eager to read this memoir because the ADA, JDRF and every medical provider I ve ever dealt with has made it sound like control is such a simple thing that every responsible diabetic finds a way to achieve So I appreciated the author s forthrightness and the validation it gave me At the same time, her experiences were so harrowing that this book hasn t exactly helped me in regard to my own relationship with the disease I d call it a cautionary tale, but not one that inspires [...]

Spare, frank, memoir about the author s experiences growing up with diabetes The stars are for a couple of excellent insights there s a passage about how doctors assume diabetics must not be afraid of needles, even though they re fear inducing even for folks who use them every day, that s stayed with me for a long time It s only three stars, though, because Dominick s life isn t that exceptional outside her diabetes The few aforementioned flashes of insight could each be contained in a long essa [...]


Malak

An insightful story about diabetes from angels that are rarely talked about How she overcome her sister s passing from the same disease she is suffering from was very brave At time I didn t understand the point of talking about the little details Andi talked about The books was an assigned reading for a course, but i m so glad i got the chance to read it.


Megan

I enjoyed this book and the unflinching look it provided on growing up with this chronic illness.However, I felt cheated to realize after the fact that the narrator s sister had died of drug overdose, when we are led to believe that the death is as a result of her diabetes control or lack thereof All in all though, a very interesting and informative read.


Cathy Klingler

What at informative, educational book It helps the reader see what it would be like to be a teenager when it was discovered you had diabetes It s a realistic portrayal of her emotions, relationships, and her medical condition Great read


Shelfari Moved

nice record for memoriesbut it was getting pretty constant and dull in the end.i know tht you dont have twists in real life all the time.but as a novel or storyi was expecting much


Emilybrooks89

Well written I enjoyed most of it, but there were parts that were disturbing and scary, for which I wish there had been warning Deals with disabilities including diabetes, visual impairment, depression, and addiction.


Angie

This book went so many places that I didn t expect it to go Wow It s a good read even for someone with no connection to insulin dependent diabetes.


Erin

I liked the beginning and probably related to it than the ending chapters but I hope that the author is able to go on with life as best she can can live happily


Morgan

this book was very infommational in telling about diabetes i will recommend this book to friends.


Jason Terrell

A little long, but it was a good and intersting book, read 160 pages in 2 days


Meghan

Good for a patient s view of chronic disease, even though the medical pieces are very outdated


Serenity Huntwork

A good read, well developed As the story went on and Andie got older, so did the tone of the chapters and her view on diabetes.
