Lg Cwd


Books about diabetes matter to the CWD community. Books provide the information and the tool sets we need to make pump adjustments, healthy recipes, and decisions about our medical care. Books show us people with diabetes as the heroes, the scientists, the teachers, the athletes, the change-makers, and these narratives help shape the way we view this health condition.

Here at CWD, we've taken years to cultivate and curate a very special library, filled with stories and science that lift us up and keep us informed. These books are the ones we keep on our staff bookshelves and recommend to our friends. These are the stories we trust to keep us moving forward. Check out our CWD library, peruse the bookshelves, and please reach out if you have a dog-eared diabetes favorite that you'd like us to include.

One Lump or Two?

Haidee Soule Merritt

A collection of cartoons inspired by the diabetes lifestyle, these illustrations span a period of more than a decade. Starting out as nothing more than a few doodles and growing to represent a lifetime of personal struggles and experiences after life changing eye surgeries in the author’s early 20s. During that period she stubbornly continued to write in her journal and finger paint in colors she couldn’t see. As she gradually recovered partial vision, Haidee rediscovered her love for the simplicity and straightforwardness of pen & ink. The cartoons in One Lump or Two mark a significant chapter in Haidee’s artistic life that she overcame with humor.
