Sustainable prospects Project development week 3 – https://www.bambino-art.co.uk/sustainable-prospects-project-development-week-3/
I became diabetic when I was pregnant with my eldest child, when I was 18 years old. The day before his 18th birthday, at the end of September, I made the 4/5 hour trip from Cornwall to London to have an insulin pump fitted. I woke up on the morning of the drive, for the 10th/15th/20th day in a row with my phone beeping at me telling me I had low blood sugar (I have a continuous glucose meter fitted that tells my phone what my blood sugars are all the time), and I became overwhelmed with the desire to capture this journey that had taken 18 years for me to get to. I never planned on sharing this project here at all, it was just for me, but I realised this journey is just one of the many personally journeys I have been on, and will continue to go on, that continue to inform my work in sometimes obvious, and sometimes totally unseen ways.
This day. My children learnt that sometimes, even mothers need to take the day away to look after themselves.
