The Roller Coaster Ride of Diabetes! Whoo! Whoo!

I am a Type 1 diabetic diagnosed back in the early 60's as a child.  I am living in Montreal, Canada and enjoy scribbling about diabetes from time to time. I’ve had my ups / downs just like any person would experience with going through life - diabetic or not.  My motto in life?  Diabetes does not control me – I control it!! 

You can find more posts/discussions at my Facebook page called "The Roller Coaster Ride of Diabetes" and also on Twitter under the name of FatCatAnna.  Feel free to follow me at both places or send me a private message!

  • Diabetes Art Day - September 1st

    Lee Ann Thill is like myself, diagnosed at an early age and is an art therapist specializing in treating people with diabetes as well as a blog writer extraordinaire.  She came up with this brillant idea when putting her head together with a few other PWD's (people with diabetes)  and posted her thoughts at her blog site called The Butter Compartment. 

    UPDATE **  (June 29, 2011):  To see the artwork that was submitted - please cut/paste the following link in a new browser window incase the one below does not work  - this may be due to Lee Ann not allowing outside websites such as Diabetes1.org to access her web page - http://www.thebuttercompartment.com/?page_id=5553.  I realise this is an extra step - but you won't be disappoointed - you'll get to see my creation I made which is the 1st one shown !!  For now, when posting the above link - it does work - but it may change once she realises we are accessing her website!

    I'm presently collecting diabetic supplies that I've been using - and waiting for that light bulb to pop off in my head - I've got some great ideas ... but guess what??? You can't copy me (I'll let you use my markers if you need them).  You'll have to think of one yourself (feel like I'm back in Grade school hunched over my artwork so no one copies from me ... ONLY KIDDING). 
    Who knows maybe you'll be the next Salvador Dali???

    If you have a blog site, you can post your artwork there, if not, do not fret, you can  post it here at Diabetes1.org.  Even better Lee Ann doesn't mind you sending it directly to her, where she will post it at The Butter Compartment (see link above as to how to contact her)!  Main thing is, whatever works for you - don't be shy - come and get involved and be part of a community art project that welcomes anyone to join in and have some fun and create!
