I just tested and my sugar is 64 and I thought of how my husband should feed me something but he's asleep...and anyway, forgive this "drunk dial" of a discussion post when I'm THIS low and loopy, but I had to do it...

"Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when my sugar is 64?"

"Baby, you can drive my car (if you've tested and your sugar is in the appropriate range)."

"Eleanor Rigby...died of a high and was buried along with her ketostix..."

"Obla-di, obla-di, life goes on, yeah, even after diagnosis..."

I think we could start a band called the Dia-Beatles. I challenge you guys to come up with more diabetically-charged song titles and lyrics. Beatles only. Extra points if it the lyrics sound like the original ones...or fit with the melody and rhythm...or make me laugh.

(I will so regret this in about 15 minutes when those marshmallows kick in.)

I've been having so much fun with these old Beatles songs that I have loved since I first saw them on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, that I failed to realize an incredible serious side to all this. And it was this song that caused me to think. About half way through it I realized I didn't need to change any more of the words, because they fit perfectly as did the message they spoke. It just sort of became real, you know? Like it wasn't a joke--it had a real message. You'll think I'm crazy, I know, but it just touched me. Sorry, I have dain bramage.

Let It Be
When I find myself in times of trouble
Diabetes comes to me
Speaking words of darkness
Let it be
And in my hour of darkness
He is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of anger
Let it be

Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of darkness
Let it be

But when the TuDiabetes people
Living in the world agree
There will be an answer
Let it be
For though they may be parted there is
still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer
Let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
yeah, there will be an answer
Let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be

Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be

And when the night is cloudy
There is still a light that shines on me
Shine until tomorrow
Let it be
I wake up to the sound of music
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom
Let it be

Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
There will be an answer
Let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
There will be an answer
Let it be

Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be
Help! I need some insulin!
Help! Not just any insulin!
Help! You know I need my insulin!
Help!
Now tell me, those of you from my generation (that would be the baby boomers) who listened to the Beatles growing up, that you aren't reading all these songs and trying to sing the lyrics to them. See I knew it, because that's exactly what I've done. Melissa, you've created a monster.
Test today...
All my glucose tabs so far away.
On my nightstand where they cannot sway
my low that won't just go away.

Why it dropped so low, I don't know,
my meter's gay.
I did something wrong, now I long
for lunch buffet-et-et-et

Test today.
Sugar's such a crazy game to play.
Now I need a snack to be okay
Oh, I believe I'll test today.
(doo-doo-doo-doo-doo test todaaaaaaaaay...)
*giggles* Cute!
omg i nearly pee'd myself to that one soooo funny x
Ob-LADA

Desmond is a Type II with the dawn phenom'.
Molly is a Type I from Riyadh.
Desmond says to Molly "Girl, your pump's awesome."
And Molly says "Thanks, it's a brand new omnipod...
Ob-la-di, ob-LADA, life goes on, brah!
I'm LADA but my life goes on.
Ob-la-di, ob-LADA, life goes on, brah!
I'm LADA but my life goes on."

Desmond takes a bolus with his Minimed,
Hopes someday to manage just the food,
Gives his heart to Molly, and, in time, they wed,
And about her diagnosis, still she croons,
"Ob-la-di, ob-LADA, life goes on, brah!
I'm LADA but my life goes on.
Ob-la-di, ob-LADA, life goes on, brah!
I'm LADA but my life goes on."

In a couple of years, A1cs have come back down,
He's off the pump, but he's still the love
Of Type 1 D Molly Jones... (Ha ha ha ha ha)

Happy ever after at their CDE's,
Desmond helps to manage with her lows.
Molly starts a blog about her recipes
And in the evening she still sings her diagnos'.
"Ob-la-di, ob-LADA, life goes on, brah!
I'm LADA but my life goes on.
Ob-la-di, ob-LADA, life goes on, brah!
I'm LADA but my life goes on."

Low blood sugar in the dead of night
Take this insulin pump and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for your BG to arise

High blood sugar in the light of day
Take these clouded thoughts so far away
All your life
You were only waiting for this high to be OK

Diabetes fly, far away
Into the light of the dark black night
Diabetes fly, far away
Into the light of the dark black night
You were only waiting for the cure to be OK.
You were only waiting for the cure to be OK.
