I use to perform around the valley playing for local artists. I really enjoyed that. I also have done some studio work here and in Los Angeles. Not much anymore. I just play at home, and every once in a while with friends or groups, but not much anymore.
I have noticed a lot that with stress comes complications with diabetes. I think that is why the exercise is key...and rest. I used to neglect my rest but not try to get a minimum of 7 hours a day. I hope that your next A1C will be back down to 6.2! Look forward to future music from you guys. Love your music! Have it on now as I work. Think you just picked up a fan in Arizona!
I have been playing drums since I was 12 years old. I am 34 now. These days I play more Latin percussion than anything. I love it. As for my Diabetes...it has been good. I am type 2, and have been exercising and eating really well. In A few months back...My A1C was at 7.4, and I had really high blood pressure. Not to long ago I went to the doctor and my A1c was at 6.2 and blood pressure normal, so I am doing and feeling much better. How about you? Do you tend to have issues when playing or performing?
No prob, thanks for the request. I hope you learn as much as I have just from looking around on the site. I understand the loss of control due to studying and life in general. I'm in grad school and it's hard to meet the demands of school and take care of my health. It took me some time, but eventually I learned how to set limitations for myself. I hope you find your way of making it work soon.
BTW, I LOVED your music. We frequently have projects that we result in a video for which we need music. Would you mind talking to the band about the possibility of using "Lots To Learn" (perhaps you can send me the lyrics) as part of a Diabetes Awareness video?
