A picture is worth 1000 words . . .

Last week I was asked to take part in study being conducted by Schlesinger and Associates.  They were looking for caregivers of children with diabetes (CWD).  Hey - that's me!  I have a CWD so I was more than happy to participate.

They asked me to make a collage about diabetes and bring it to the meeting.  So, the above picture is what I made and took into the meeting. Pretty cute - no?  I mean if you have to make a picture about diabetes - it's pretty cute.  Oh wait - maybe it's just my adorable son, Nate that makes it so cute!!  :)

Anyway, I have no idea who or what the research was for but I hope that I was able to help in some way because ONE DAY I WOULD LOVE TO SAY THAT MY SON USED TO HAVE DIABETES!

Well, if you HAVE to make a picture about diabetes - it IS pretty darn cute. Especially with Nate in it :)

What a cutie - though the picture of him crying in your arms is a heartbreaker.

Hey Laura - I participated in the Schlesinger research group about Type 1 caregivers here in Philly - just two days ago! There was a group of 7 of us and it was like paid therapy! I had to do the collage too, but yours is awesome! The homework was kind of interesting, huh? Pictures of what a low would 'look like'? I almost felt like I WAS in therapy! Great collage though!

Nice job on the collage.

One day soon please.
