I want them to feel this is their early morning wake up call, to get out of that ‘zombified’ sleep and start questioning all the big companies.

Mus, France (PRWEB) April 10, 2014

In “They Didn't Listen, They Didn't Know How” (published by AuthorHouse UK), author and orthopedic nurse Olwen Davies fulfills her husband’s dying request and shares his story of battling Type 2 diabetes in an effort to educate readers facing their own medical challenges and doubting the medical community.

“They Didn't Listen, They Didn't Know How” is organized into three parts. In the first section, Davies recounts her husband’s childhood and adolescent years. The second part details his last five weeks alive as he battles Type 2 diabetes.

The final section is Davies’ story of her healing journey as she pieces her life back together, trying to understand her beloved husband’s death. Her writing offers the perspectives of both a healthcare professional and that of a grieving widow.

It is Davies’ hope that readers approach her book with an open mind and take back control of their bodies.

“I want readers to be responsible for what's happening to their lives,” writes Davies. “I want them to feel this is their early morning wake up call, to get out of that ‘zombified’ sleep and start questioning all the big companies.”
