what’s up?

My name is heather, and i’m a diabetic.

It happened when i was eleven and from there you know the drill. Shots, shots, shots, pump, shots, pump, pump, pump.

i guess you can say i’m all about it. My job, my passion, my life. Diabetes, Diabetes, Diabetes.

Here, i’ll be showing you how and where the big D catches me off guard. i think you will be as surprised by the ‘unexpected blues’ as i was when i began photographing the occurrences. That awkward moment where you see something completely unrelated to a major part of your life that somehow reminds you of that part of your life.

Why blue? It’s the everywhere diabetes color and well, you’ll see.

Maybe ‘meta’ isn’t the best word to use. But, you get me, right?

  1. Love your blogs from Diabetes Blog Week – whenever I find the time to get around to blogging our last topic – for our fav blogs – you get two thumbs up (or should I say “claws”. BTW, love the name of your pug … Lancet!

  4. Dear Heather,

    DIABETV, located in Miami FL, is a new media company for all people touched by pre-diabetes, diabetes and those interested in a healthier lifestyle. We are an interactive platform providing bi-lingual content (English and Spanish) on our blogs, web site and social media accounts.

    Our main goal is to enlightening information about diabetes and pre-diabetes for people with the disease and their care givers. In order for us to achieve this, we have selected a great team of doctors, nutritionist and people with diabetes or pre-diabetes who support and write for us.

    We acknowledge that to fulfill this goal, we need to connect with people and institutions that are touched or driven by Diabetes now more than ever because the “World Diabetes Day” is fast approaching.

    Our plan during this next month is to create a campaign to tell YOUR story to the world. That is why we are respectfully asking for a contact with you or your institution. Hopefully, we will have the opportunity to have a short Q&A with you via either by e-mail, mail, phone, skype or however is most convenient for you.

    We would like to share your story and journey in the fight against Diabetes on all of our platforms (blog, website and social media).

    Thank you so much for your time and consideration,

    MIAMI, FLORIDA 33131
