I am an artist... so I made art with my used supplies.
hanging in my studio now...gets mixed reviews.
some love it, some hate it.
most people think heroin.. I have to tell them diabetes.

What to do with my used syringes?
I haven't thrown one away for 15 years.
Until Dec 2012... then I threw them all away.
In a sharps container (18 gallon) full.
