If staying alive is sickly then fair enough.

Dramatic black and white photo brings home the message of living with diabetes. Hope they find a cure soon. I also like the expression in the eyes and face and posture.

Sorry Paul if I have upset you in anyway, I appreciate the syringe and that is keeps people like yourself alive, I am not having a dig at that fact, It is purely the image you have put on, turns my stomach a bit.........Regards Martin

I did wonder what was going on here before I read your description. A cracking self portrait, one with a message, one that makes you think.
