Just trully write from your heart. First, talk about how you first knew that you had diabeties and express your true feeling on paper, then talking about how it been and then write about whats happaning now to you and how you feel. Be sure to show, not tell and add lots of details including the five sences.

First, write your story.
Edit your book many times to make it the best it can be, type it in proper manuscript form (visit http://www.writersdigest.com to find out what is needed), consider joining a local writer's group to get feedback from other would-be writers, and get it proofread by someone who knows what they are doing (don't rely just on spellcheck). Edit it some more.
There are a tiny number of publishers that accept unsolicited manuscripts (those that don't go through a literary agent), so getting an agent first is a really good idea.
At the library or bookstore is Guide to Literary Agents, published by Writer's Digest, or Bowker's Literary Marketplace (or visit http://www.agentquery.com). Look for agents that specialize in your genre, and are looking for new clients. Read, and follow, their submission guidelines. In those books will be something about writing a query letter, which is what you send to the agent, first. It's part synopsis of your book, and part explanation as to why your book deserves to be published. You have only that one-page letter to wow the agent, so take the time to make it a good one. Expect the whole process to take lots of time, and expect many rejections. When you are accepted by an agent, they will send your book to publishers, not you. The whole process is free, except for postage, until your book is bought by a publisher. That is when the agent gets their cut (usually 15%) of the money which would go to you.
If you decide to self-publish, then you will pay (potentially up to a couple of thousand dollars, depending on which publisher you choose). Also, the marketing of your book is up to you.
People will want to read your book and share your experiences. We are living in the recommendation age, and your experiences and recommendations can help others who have diabetes or need more information about living with it. There are many ways to write your book and there is a method that has worked for many people and you can get the book on Amazon. This process can take you from no words to a finished book real quick and get it to a New York publisher.

Don't think about it like, I want to write a book. Just start writing all your feelings, memories, hopes, whatever, down and see if they start to add up to some sort of cohesive testimony. Maybe write an article or an essay first. The point is to take whatever is going on inside you and try to articulate it so that your life makes sense to you. If you're honest then it will hold some sort of appeal to people who read it. Writing a book is a colossal task that requires immense organizational skill. Start small and you'll remain true. Then later, maybe you'll be able to morph it into something more ambitious.

A story, whether it's a novel, short story, or screenplay, is started with some of the following:
1. Premise. This is when you ask, "What would happen if?" Anything can get you started with it. The author of "Lord of the Rings" started his when he wrote about a hole in the ground on a piece of paper. He had no clue what it meant, he simply wrote it. Then he started asking "what would happen if..." something lived in it? Then it grew into "The Hobbit" and "Lord of the Rings". Brainstorm, read the news, and start asking what if questions to develop the premise of your story.
2. Setting. You can set your story anywhere, on Mars, in the past on Earth, in the future on a starship, anywhere. Even thinking about the setting can help you to develop the premise.
3. Multiple Characters. Almost all stories contain multiple characters to play off of the values of the others. Start thinking about characters and what they want and this will also help you to develop your story. Ask lots of "what would happen if?"
4. Inciting Incident. This is where you story begins that turns your story's world upside-down and forces your character to set it straight. Then your character will begin a quest to reach an object of desire. Thinking about an inciting incident can also be your premise: "What would happen if a shark ate someone and the partially-eaten body ends up on the beach?" Jaws.
These points should help you to get started.

A 13 year old boy called Luke Jackson attending Arnold School in Blackpool suffers from Asphergers Syndrome. That is an autistic disorder which makes it difficult for him to socialise. He wrote a book about Asphergers Syndrome from the point of view of someone who has it and got it published.

I believe you actually have to copy their work word for word or use something that is undeniably the author's idea to be hit with plagiarism. For example, you would not be able to publish a book with Harry Potter as the main character but you would be able to write a story about a boy who finds out he is a wizard. Does that make sense?
