Today’s topic: Diabetes Art
Infusion sets, omnipods, sensors, and tape.
These all look foreign and unusual on your body to someone who isn’t familiar with diabetes.
I’ve spent a lot of time trying to conceal what’s on my stomach, to prevent the stares.
But not today.
Today I want to draw attention to this area.
I want it to be seen and admired. I want it to be viewed as something beautiful.
I am not embarrassed. I am not ashamed.
I am proud.
I am diabetic.
