Diabetes Art Day is a web-based initiative for the Diabetes Online Community to “tell a story” about life with diabetes though creative visual expression.”
Diabetes make its way into my dreams every now and again, especially when my blood glucose drops or is dropping while I sleep. These pictures are a recreation of some of my recent dreams or diabetes nightmares as I call them.
The photos above are from a dream in which my fingers were leaking blood from being overused. In my dream, I sat helpless watching each finger bleed, then my test strips marched towards the blood as if they were magnets being pulled towards each other.
This photo below is a scene from a dream where my late maternal grandmother took me into a lab where a cure is being worked on.
Today February 4th 2013 is the forth-annual Diabetes Art Day. To participate, make a piece of art that reflects something about your life with diabetes and share it.
Find out all about it and take a look at all the submissions at the Diabetes Art Day website.
