ABOUT MY WRITING
This memoir began as self-imposed therapy, an attempt to organize and understand events during a thirty-year period of my life that I never got to process. It became a literary undertaking (e.g. creative non-fiction) when I realized that some of my memories of exactly who did what, when and where had faded. The core events and situations are genuine. The supporting characters are blended, in personality, actions and timing. Almost all of their names have been changed, and dialogue attributed to certain ones may not have been theirs or their exact words.
Portions of my therapy writing—events that did not hold a direct connection to my husband’s diabetes but nevertheless additionally impacted my life and needed processing—are either only briefly mentioned or not included in this work.
