Diabetes Art Day is a fun event started by my friend Lee Ann to “encourage individuals and families with diabetes to engage in creative visual expression to communicate their experience with diabetes, connect with others, raise awareness, and promote insight and positive coping skills”. One thing that I have learned over the past few years participating in this is that I’m really not all that creative But I still have fun and especially love seeing the entries by others in the community.
My submission for this year is about the ups and downs of diabetes. Figuratively and literally. There are both good and bad times living with diabetes. And even though the bad times can seem overpowering and never ending at times, in reality, the good times are bigger. And this I believe is what gets us through.
