just now I was trying to start a group:Art& Diabetes,fill information but would not be accepted,now I know why.who else but you Manny who can start all beautiful things on this site,
but my idea is a little bit different,I like to see poeple with diabetes to bring out any artistic tendencies or if they are artistic to develop it and art can decrease depression ( it cured me),takes mind of worries that some diabetics face and connect people together,then comes the part of using art for speaking for diabetics and be their voice,and to help charity.
I started my first book ( arabic poems,romance& nostalgia with a poem about Raed,an 18 month old boy,and the book sold during world diabetes day2007 allover hospitals in Reyadh,money bought supplies for diabetic kids( strips and lancets have to be purchased by parets in most places).
yes art is healing ad poweful.It is a language understood by many.
IDF started many compitions for children,asked us to encourage them to write about diabetes,an adopted girl wrote very touching diary about her adoption and diabetes,
thanks Manny again.will you advertise this group in the main page please!
