photoblog image NA!   I just need a definition for PANHYPOPITUITARISM.

NA! I just need a definition for PANHYPOPITUITARISM.

It's health awareness week in my books people!!! In future I will be doing a series on life in the hospital. (Thanks to a dear friend of mine for giving me some pointers ;) . Don't know when, because I have to get clearance first.  Too many laws in this country. Anyways but it will be pretty soon.

If Disease had a face what would it look like? Flesh eating, Cancerous, Disgusting, fluid filled.........and all that good stuff. I know this image is going to scare some people....

I am so sorry people but I have a pathology exam and I am really in the mood. Had a brain wave while I was studying last week :D

The processing is excellent in this very expressive image. It looks like she's eating her fingers! Dis-ease indeed.
Ada Emihe: lol...Thank you so much Larry. Glad you looked at my image.

Nice work Ada. How did you set up the shot?
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Stan. I used a tripod, one hallogen lamp directly on her face and I processed in Light room. I am bad at technical descriptions, so if you have any other questions I will be happy to answer them.

I like this, Ada. I see that you portray worry and concern with a look of contemplation of things you can't control. I note that you write the word disease in largish letters, in red, and falling down the page rather than the usual. The choice of font is irregular too. Good choice.
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Chad. You sound so different...lol...
This should most certainly make most people ponder and wonder about the the fortunes and /or misfortunes that happen to us through the issue of disease and how we cope and deal with it. richard
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Richard.

Not every "disease" and not everyone with a "disease" fits this stereotype. Some of us are vital and empowered and even have grown because of the "diseases" we have.

My mother is a 78 year old woman with cancer who just ran in a 5k race and parachuted for her birthday.

I have an immune disorder and a kidney "disease" and have never viewed myself or my "disease" through the lens which you portray.

While you think the image is scary, I find the potential of stereotyping "diseases" and their effects on us to be even more scary. We, humans, the one's with "diseases," are inseparable from the diseases we have.

If I were to portray my "disease," it would be as wisdom and a gentle teacher.
Ada Emihe: I am sorry Kathryn, but I was in no way trying to make this picture represent people with diseases. This is merely an introduction for a series that will feature the progress patients and healthcare providers have made or are making in fighting Disease. I apologize if it looks that way. Secondly I agree with all you have said, but I must say something though. I too have had my own experiences and if you look through my eyes it's quite an interesting one. I have never viewed disease as something good neither have i viewed it as something so terrible or scary. I have had my own share of disease, I have lost my God mother, my uncle, friends, my mums sister, my dads brother, cousins, you name it, to Cancer and AIDS. I took care of my ailing God mother, loved her and watched her get better, I came back the next week only to relize she was gone. I have been with patients today and had a different story to tell the next day. Some of them I have grieved for and some of thenm I have rejoiced with. I have travelled on this road for a while, I started out with a number of people, but that number has decreased. The last thing this image is supposed to do is stereotype disease and it's effects. I am happy to say that we agree on something; Diseases shouldn't break us, but should make us. My apologies once again.

Congrats, you're going to be in the medical profession...... as a Mortician, I used to bury Doctors' mistakes. Stereotyping, am I? Well, just remember : your own stereotype engenders others ...... .

u have created a piece of art, cos it seems to have caused a debate. nice shot. in my humble opinion you don't really need the red letter text, its too obvious hence watering down the impact, let the image speak for itself. You work in hospital, thats great....... run with those idea ma'am
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Asiko....Yes this has caused an interesting debate.
There is a lot in what Kathryn says. The way some people cope with a serious illness, or even just the increased frailty of age can be truly inspiring. Ask anybody who works in a hospice.smile
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Bill. I have had my own experience with hospice care and it's not pretty.

I'm pretty scared of ill health, so this image resonates with me, but I think Kathryn makes some good points. I once read a book called 'Love Your Disease, It's Keeping You Healthy' which took the unconventional line that diseases were messages from the body which we need to attend to. I don't completely swallow this, but there's something in it. Also my creative writing teacher, who was the most vibrant, life-affirming person, lived with breast cancer for over ten years. It killed her eventually, but she lived right up to the end.

A pathology exam and your taking time out to post on SC! Rather you than me! I hate it when I look through those books A-Z of diseases - enough to make you stay in forever ;o) Good photo btw and good luck with the exams ;o)
Ada Emihe: Thank you Blackdog. All work and no posts..............not good for me.
Lovely way to start girl, you keep impressing us with each image these days, now looking forward and wondering what the next image will be, so hence need to keep coming back, thats all down to your lovely talent.
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Guys for all your encouragement.
It's a good image, Ada. Good luck with the exam.
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Bridge...
An artistic piece, love it. I would loose the disease writing on it though. I think the image is strong enough to speak for itself.
Ada Emihe: Thank you Adebayo. Good thing I have a copy without the word. I am still laughing...at you, that is.

nice one buddy

the writing doesn't take away from it, it just turns a good photograph into a good poster

as much as i don't think i can ever see disease as a good thing, i agree with kathryn that we can learn a lot from it, and it can make us stronger on the inside

so if i were to portray disease it would be a teacher too but a cruel one with shifty eyes
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Draw. Please lets see that image and your own potrayal.

Bit of a stir with this one eh?
As a photo I really like it and as for its deeper meaning I guess its different for each person based on their own experience, but thats art isn't it? I see somebody lost in their own thoughts and worries maybe at the early stages before they found the strength they need to fight.
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Padraig.......Your words are soothing, and your interpretation is nice. Thank you again.

When all pituitary hormone production is deficient or decreased, the term Panhypopituitarism is used! wink
Ada Emihe: Thank you grin............ Now what would I have done without your help :p
After reading most of the comments and looking at the pic I'm scared to comment...
Ada Emihe: Lol Nig....what are you afraid of? Say what you want to...lol
scare me lol, far from it Ada, just makes me admire you and your imagination and great work. what would it look like hmmmmm no idea but keep on having brain waves pleasesmile
Ada Emihe: I am so glad it doesn't scare you Tim....Thank you so much Tim.
I admire people like you who are are able to find beauty in distressful situations. Another great shot.
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Albert. Appreciate your kind words.
