Beyond Control: Caring for a Body with Diabetes.
Powers-Beck, Jeff
Now & Then, v17 n1 p42-44 Spr 2000
A man who has lived with Type 1 "juvenile" diabetes since age 4 reflects on medical professionals' insistence on a vocabulary of "control," although diabetes is not really controllable, and suggests that diabetes education would be more effective if it employed a language of self-care rather than a language of control.
