Whats your Diabetes song?

I totally thought of Stand. When I first heard that song I was caring for my mother who was dying. It totally fit the idea that just when life knocks the wind out of you, you compose yourself, get up and take care of business.

I am particularly fond of choral music. The one that I have programmed into my pump is "If Ye Love Me, Keep my Commandments". The piece was written by Thomas Tallis, who lived in England between 1505 and 1575. The text is from John 14:15-17.

This is a fine rendition of the piece. http://youtu.be/eYtxiuOw2Vc

i'd have to look it up :)

LOVELY! :) I don't listen to much choir music but it is very nice!


#25

I like Tool too (Parabol > Parabola and others) but Forty Six & 2 is new to me. Cool song.

TB Blues, recorded by Jimmie Rogers in 1931, is about living with a chronic condition. In those days there was no cure, "There ain't nobody ever whipped the TB blues". Jimmie died of TB a year and a half after recording this song.

Here's Merle Haggard's version.

On the surface its not very uplifting but like many blues tunes under the surface I think it's really about keeping a positive attitude despite what life throws at you.

Merle ends the song with a little yodeling.
"Yodel le he
Yodel le he
a le he
Got the TB Blues"

Maybe it's just me, but a song that ends with yodeling can't really be sad:)

TB Blues fits me very well! My initials are TB, and I was born in 1932, which was probably the year when Jimmie Rogers passed away. I've never had much of a problem with those initials, but my father did (I'm named after him), so he included the middle initial whenever possible.

A lot of Tool songs seem to deal with various sorts of transformations which, to some degree, is what we deal with with diabetes, since we have to anticipate and react to blood sugar related inputs all the time. I like Tool a lot. I have a cool shirt but, unfortunately, I got it when I was chunky and it's too big to do much but sleep in these days!!

Some days for me it's Plumb's "I can't do this". I definately would be lost somedays without my families help! Had a nasty low glucose in the middle of the night a few nights ago and my husband woke up because I was "restless" in his words. He woke me up and helped me out. I'm not sure I would have woken up in the morning if I had been alone!


#34

I love Plumb :) Thats scary and and I can relate. Tuesday night I dropped to 30 for the second time in a weeks time. Always happens at 2:30 am. I always wake up on my own but I'm afraid I won't sometime. Family is amazing! doesn't help too much if you sleep in your own room but my mom wants me to wake her then she sits with me till I'm okay.


#35

I'm pretty sure I first heard it when my mother was sick, too. It SO helped!

You Never Let Go - by Matt Redman

The Chorus (that only a person with Diabetes would hear differently):

Oh no, You never let go
Through the calm and through the storm
Oh no, You never let go
In every high and every low
Oh no, You never let go
Lord, You never let go of me

Watch the lyric video!
