Diabetes Blog Week - Day 5 - Diabetes Art



Hello. Day 5 and this where I prove I'm not creative....


This year Diabetes Art moves up from the Wildcard choices as we all channel our creativity with art in the broadest sense. Do some “traditional” art like drawing, painting, collage or any other craft you enjoy. Or look to the literary arts and perhaps write a d-poem or share and discuss a favorite quote. Groove to some musical arts by sharing a song that inspires you diabetes-wise, reworking some song lyrics with a d-twist, or even writing your own song. Don’t forget dramatic arts too, perhaps you can create a diabetes reality show or play. These are just a starting point today – there are no right or wrong ways to get creative!



Once there was boy who needed lots of wees,
They called the doctor who said he had diabetes. 
Many years later after thousands of stabs and injections,
He got a pump to help him achieve BG perfection. 
There'll be more stress to come but hopefully no tears,
Because the cure's coming in ten years*. 

*Always 10 years. 

That is all. Thank you and apologies for my damage to the arts. 

Dave

    1. Thank you. I think laughter is the second best medicine we have - after insulin obviously.
