Diabetes Video Storytelling Project

Are you or someone you know living with diabetes? Would you like to share your story and  help us help others?

Emotion Technology is producing a series of educational videos centering on people’s experiences with diabetes. We’ll be shooting the video in Austin, TX April 20th-22nd and are able to offer a $150.00 stipend to thank every participant for their time.

Contact me (meredith@emotiontechnology.com) with questions!

I put it in as a contact in my phone. Why? Because there may be someone I come across that will need it. I have the number memorized now, but what about three weeks from now?
Another reason is, I’ve been there too many times this year. Maybe you have too. So do yourself a favor, and put it in your phone. Maybe it will save you in that dark hour.

During my junior year of high school I was diagnosed with major depression. Every morning I’d get up and contemplate suicide. I was under a lot of stress at school with two AP level tests coming up (& I was failing miserably at them), I was a major lead in the school play, I had been staying up…

So let me tell you a little about myself, and what this project is about.

I am 20 years old, and at rock bottom. I am failing school, I am depressed, I have no job, .38 in the bank and my rent is due the 8th. Most of this comes from my own stupidity regarding school, and reaching the bottom is…
