What happens when a health writer develops a chronic illness? As Rebecca K. Abma can tell you, it turns into an obsession. Since being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in December 2003, 90 percent of her non-work computer time is spent researching the disease and chatting with fellow diabetics.
Pregnant with her first child, due in October, her obsession has moved from just diabetes to pregnancy and diabetes; and of course, shopping for baby items. Frustrated with the lack of helpful information available about pregnancy and diabetes, she is currently writing a book on the subject.
Her writing has appeared in Fitness, First for women, GreatLife and Diabetes Self-Management magazines, among others as well as several websites, including Body1.com. This is her first foray into the world of blogging.
