In a recent attempt to begin painting with oils I started a painting of daisies. When I took the unfinished piece home my very observant husband asked if they were fried eggs. So I guess back to the drawing (painting) board on that one. Learning a new skill does take time effort and patience.
Another new almost hobby I am trying to cultivate is crocheting and I seem to at least be able to get a few things to resemble what they are supposed to look like.
Patients with diabetes who are initially diagnosed also have to learn a whole new set of skills, particularly type 1. In a child’s case the whole family needs to upskill. This is daunting. Especially when there is technology attached to the skill set. Starting with a glucometer and needles/syringes etc and moving towards more integrated pump/continous monitoring systems is a steep learning curve – one that inevitably will result in some eggs dropping on the floor.
When you learn to cook you usually start with boiling eggs- they are generally hard to flop but even they can be “flopped”.
Don’t let learning a new skill get on top of you, don’t let anyone discourage you. Very soon you will be painting daisies that anyone can recognise.
