So I have a few songs that I feel like describe my thoughts on diabetes well and I want to hear yours. One of mine is Mandisa's Stronger. It just fits the way I feel about fighting diabetes day in and day out. Another one is Plumb's Need you Now. I honestly don't think I'd ever connected that one to diabetes related stuff until one night last week when I woke up at 2:30am with a bg of 31. It took 30 mins to get it to 84 and while sitting there Need You Now was in my head.

What are the songs that help you?

Stand, by Rascal Flatts, when I need inspiration. Just about any Simple Plan song (especially Astronaut and Welcome to my Life) when I'm sad or just plain p***ed off.

Oh, and Carry On, by Fun.

going to listen to them both!

i did know and like stand but havent heard the others ever.

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.

love that song, brought me to tears many of times! jacobs diabetes song goes something like if you ever walk a mile in my shoes you might know how it feels im not sure of the title but oh so appropriate

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

omg, i have been thinking about this all week! listening to love songs and thinking i could be singing them to my pancreas! any song that has anything like, "please come back to me", "i cant live without you", "i miss you".

My choice is "Survival" by Muse.

Just listen to the lyrics:

love the song and the video. Thanks for sharing!

great lyrics!
