Madison, WI, June 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reflecting on her brother’s death and her mother’s insufficient knowledge of a diet’s direct relation to health and wellbeing, Anne Marie Herman’s book, “Positive Affirmation - Fear No More: Memoir” aims to provide the knowledge about diabetes her family lacked when it mattered most. This perspicacious guide for those recently diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes or families of those that have to face this high-maintenance disease, looks into Herman’s upbringing as the sole caregiver to her brothers and how she had to learn through trial and error how to feed them while nurturing herself as an adolescent forced to embrace adulthood. Herman is an inherent nurturer and felt the need to care for others the way she cared for her family.

Herman hopes to encourage those living with Type 2 Diabetes to live in a healthy way, develop a strong support system to help them, and have a good handle on the small tips and tricks that can make the biggest difference when navigating this condition.

“Learning to care for my brother and feed him was the only way to keep my family healthy and together. I want others who need advice on caring for someone with Diabetes to have the tools to do so,” Herman said. “My brothers told me they preferred my cooking to a restaurant, and it was healthier believe it or not!”

Herman is an inherent nurturer and felt the need to care for others the way she cared for her family. Readers will be eager to read “Positive Affirmation - Fear No More” because of Herman’s comforting, easily understood and informative approach to a disease commonly misunderstood by those most affected.
