I've generally steered away from this as a wild card before, but this year I actually had an idea about what to do! Now, I'm not particularly creative, so my contribution to today's topic is going to be some songs that I associate with diabetes.
First up is Think Like a Pancreas:
I was fortunate enough to be able to go to FFL in Glasgow this year, and I had a fantastic time. As part of the opening night Ollie Double, a parent to two children with diabetes, performed "Think Like a Pancreas" to the tune of "Walk Like an Egyptian", and it made me laugh so much. :)
Secondly, it's Turbulence by Bowling For Soup (or a bowl of soup as my mum calls them...)
I love this song, and it's got me through quite a lot, but it particularly rings true to me about diabetes. It's the song that gets me through when I'm having one of those days (or weeks...) when diabetes is just not playing ball. That, and it's a beautiful song.
Finally, I had to include Pancreas by Weird Al Yankovic.
It just makes me smile, and I think our poor little pancreases could do with a bit of love ;) Also, it was my ringtone on my husband's phone for quite a while when we first started seeing each other. <3 br="">3>
