My Diabetes Playlist . . .

11Theme song. Imagine your health focus or blog is getting its own theme song. What would the lyrics be? What type of music would it be played to?

I was pretty sure I was going to skip this topic today, because I just can’t come up with a theme song for my blog.  But I decided to just take the topic in a different direction.  Instead of a theme song, I want to share two of my favorite diabetes songs by two very special people.

The first is the song that my friend George, the Ninjabetic, wrote in 2008 for World Diabetes Day.  Every time iTunes shuffles to Not By Choice when I’m in the car, it makes me smile and cry at the same time.  I’m so proud of George for writing this wonderful anthem.

For the second song on my d-playlist, George teamed up with the fantastic Cherise to parody a Beyoncé song.  Pete and I have been known to randomly break out into a chorus of All the Diabetics when we are at home.  (Okay, and sometimes in public too.)

What songs are on your Diabetes Playlist?


  1. Oh my goodness Karen thank you so much for the double shout out!

    I have been working on more music but I am not sure it is ready for public consumption. LOL

    SugaSheen must work on a new jam!

    1. More music??? You just put a HUGE smile on my face!!

  2. Love it!!! What great music and lyrics. Way to go, George and Cherise! Thanks for sharing Karen.

  3. WOW! I had to share All The Diabetics on my FB page - so awesome and funny. You guys rock! Thanks for sharing these in today's HAWMC post!

  4. Love love love both of these songs!! Your blog made me smile really wide today! Thank you, I REALLY needed that:)

  5. YAY! this post makes me so happy! :)

  6. I have Not by Choice in Itunes but totally forgot about the All the Diabetics one. Great picks!

  7. I love MY version of Not By Choice from George playing it with the slideshow at his walk. Seeing all of our faces behind him makes an awesome song that much better!

  8. All The Diabetics is great! Now when I test I can think positive, in control thoughts rather than hassle, out of control thoughts. And I can hum to the test! Thanks!


Thanks for your comment!
