Hi! I’m William “Lee” Dubois (called either Wil or Lee, depending what part of the internet you’re on). I’m a diabetes columnist and the author of four books about diabetes that have collectively won 16 national and international book awards. (Hey, if you can’t brag about yourself on your own blog, where can you??) I have the great good fortune to pen the edgy Dear Abby-style advice column every Saturday at Diabetes Mine; write the Diabetes Simplified column for dLife; and am one of the ShareCare diabetes experts. My work also appears in Diabetic Living and Diabetes Self-Management magazines. In addition to writing, I’ve spent the last half-dozen years running the diabetes education program for a rural non-profit clinic in the mountains of New Mexico. Don’t worry, I’ll get some rest after the cure. LifeAfterDx is my personal home base, where I get to say what and how I feel about diabetes and… you know… life, free from the red pens of editors (all of whom I adore, of course!).

Weird and wonderful

So it is here at last. The Spanish version of Taming the Tiger. It is ever so slightly larger, as Spanish words, it turns out, are in general longer than English words which caused nightmare layout and hyphenation problems.

Rio was very concerned. “But Daddy, then it won’t fit in diabetic’s pockets!”

It’s OK, baby, people who speak Spanish have bigger pockets.

“Oh, well… OK then.”

So it is kinda weird having your words translated into a language you do not speak. But kinda wonderful at the same time.
