Thank you D! I am so very sorry I'm just now responding. The note got pushed down in my in-box! : )
ll three pieces ar 20x20". All three represent how the daily grind of being a diabetic can obscure the bright beauty in life.
The first is acrylic with pen over it. I started by writing all the messages that go on in my head all the time.
- Don't forget to bring an extra bottle of insulin.
- Don't leave your purse in the sun or the insulin will spoil.
- Don't go outside without shoes.
- Always have sugar with you.
Then it just started pouring out.....
Messages from other people, "My grandmother had diabetes and lost her foot"
Messages from me, "You know you can't go hiking, you'll have a low blood sugar"
The ongoing list of to-do's, "Change your pump every 2 days, move your CGM every 7, use antibacterial soap so you don't get infections again, eat 30 grams of carbs a meal, write down your meals/insulin/exercise/bolus to tell your doctor, get an A1C every three months, see your endocrinologies every three weeks, your Ophthalmologist every year, your podiatrist yearly, it goes on and on.
Before I knew it my canvass was totally filled up!
The second is obviously all the trash / supplies created every day by being a diabetic.
And the last is black tangled yarn over a bright canvas.
Thank you for the nice complement!! : )
