Diabetes Challenge: (Art) Wanted Dead or Alive (Diabetes Style)

Diabetes Blog Challenge:  Diabetes Art

Saturday Challenge:
This year Diabetes Art moves up from the Wildcard choices as we all channel our creativity with art in the broadest sense. Do some “traditional” art like drawing, painting, collage or any other craft you enjoy. Or look to the literary arts and perhaps write a d-poem or share and discuss a favorite quote. Groove to some musical arts by sharing a song that inspires you diabetes-wise, reworking some song lyrics with a d-twist, or even writing your own song. Don’t forget dramatic arts too, perhaps you can create a diabetes reality show or play. These are just a starting point today – there are no right or wrong ways to get creative!

I’m going a bit out of order here, but I have to act on my little strokes of genius when they strike.


It’s never the same
Only the days will change
Every day
It seems I’m dosing away
Another day
Where the numbers just won’t hold
I try all night to fight that low

I’m a D-Mom
Got Glucose on my mind
I’m wanted (needed)
Dead or alive

Sometimes I sleep, Sometimes it’s not for days
The people I meet
Don’t know what’s right to say
Sometimes I tell the day
By the carbs that I treat
Sometimes when I’m alone
All I do is think

I’m a D-Mom
Got Insulin on my mind
I’m wanted (needed)
Dead or alive

I Walk for the Cure
Meters and Snacks are on my back
Appointments we keep
There’s just no turning back
I’ve tried everything
And sometimes we hit a wall
Given a million shots
And I’ve rocked them all

I’m a D-Mom
Got A1C on my mind
I’m wanted (needed)
Dead or alive

I’m a D-Mom
I’ve got Science on my side
And I’m wanted
Dead or Alive
Not always right
Dead or Alive
I still try
(I still try)
Until I'm Dead ... or Alive

Now, If I could get Jon and Richie to sing it…



  1. That's great ! I had the tune playing in my head as I read through it. Someone with some skill should put it to music !!!!

  2. Diabetes is a very tough disease to care for. You have to make huge changes in your diet and also carefully monitor and maintain your disease.The level of sugar in blood is most essential part and if it increases above the level causes lots of problems.

  3. I wish I could sing...maybe it would go viral. In the meantime, I'm hoping someone shows Jon and.or Richie so they can sing it for me! ;)
