PODCAST EPISODE

#47 Type 1 Diabetes THE MUSICAL

Sugar Mama's Podcast: Type 1 Diabetes

Nov 23 2021 • 27 mins


I am, and have always been, one of those people who goes around singing songs that match whatever circumstance I find myself in. Sometimes the lyrics are already perfect for the situation at hand and sometimes I change them a little bit to make a parody. When my daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, naturally this "habit" of mine came right alongside me as we bolused for meals, changed devices, and dealt with the highs and lows that are just inevitable with being insulin dependent. Thus, Type 1 Diabetes THE MUSICAL was born and today I want to share it with you, listeners of The Sugar Mama's Podcast!

In this episode, I sing my way (yes, you get to hear me sing) through each and every one of these songs. Type 1 Diabetes the Musical has 9 categories or scenes that I organized the nearly 40 songs into. Below you will find a written list of these categories and songs as well as a link to the Spotify Playlist where you can listen to all of these songs in ordered or shuffled. Enjoy!
