Last November I wrote a song for World Diabetes Day which I played on a vlog post.

It was one of the first songs I have ever written that honestly came to me on the drive home from work! After the vlog went up, I had a lot of people asking for a copy to download. As much as I liked the words and the way I sang it, it was not complete.

In March I went into a professional studio with a 24 pack of diet soda, my guitar, and a piece of paper with my lyrics on it. I spent 8 hours recording tracks, changing harmonies, and adding instruments.

And finally it was done.

The song is really a journey through my diabetes life, from being diagnosed and having no idea what I was dealing with, to wondering why this happened to me, to finally accepting it and preparing myself to not let it get the best of me.

The chorus says, "You're here with me, but not by choice. Your scream so loud without a voice. I learned your name, but still I don't understand why it never ends."

Here is a link to iTunes where you can purchase it.

I hope when you listen to it, you find your own story within the words.

Also, I would love to know what you think. Your opinion and support means to much to me.

I was just about to go post my own blog post out here to get the members to check your blog post out! Great job dude, you are awesome! I am so glad to have connected with you online, for awhile I thought I was the only born again diabetic out there in the world. Knowing your story is helping me gear up for the last phase of changing my lifestyle, quitting smoking. I have a quit date set now and I am gearing up to get this done.

George, I just did a blog entry about your song. I am so very impressed. I think you said what so many feel and you said it so eloquently! Congrats on that song!

I bought the song George. See what a little polish can do?! I rated that 5 stars. That is in a class with something Eric Clapton would do.
