The song was popular in the early 70’s – 1972, to be exact.
Here’s the song – https://youtu.be/lLeCB7Kn-VE
I put it at the bottom of this post.
Here are the lyrics (for you younger d-people who think the 70’s are the old days – please remember that the Beatles and the Rolling Stones were the 60’s) – (And some of us were around for those…)
I very often think of the d-bloggers that I got to know when I was first diagnosed. OMG – I have Diabetes? Me? I was scared. I was angry. I was petrified. And there they all were – right there on my computer screen. It was very nice.
I have this terrible habit of speaking before I think. Commenting on blogs? Well, I’ve grown wiser with age and kept my mouth shut for a long time. I was a “lurker.” There was even a day for “unlurking.” I really enjoy having all of these d-friends and know that I’m lucky to have found the DOC – Diabetes Online Community.
Back in the beginning, I spent a whole lot of time Googling terms I would read on the d-blogs.
What’s a basal? (Hint – not the plant you grow in your veggie garden.)
What’s a bolus? (Another hint – frequently seen as “I bloused 2 units for the cupcake,” because spell checks just don’t get bolusing – )
What’s MDI? (Multiple Daily Injections) It’s not an advanced degree – but it probably should be!
And now? Well – I’m pumping with an Animas Ping. I’m CGM’g (Continuous Glucose Monitor) with a Dexcom. And I’m writing letters to Senators and Representatives for their help in making CGMs available through Medicare. And – my preference is approval for Types 1 & 2.
So – since I’ve dusted this ole blog off (Thanks, Reyna!), I hope to find some new friends in addition to boring my old friends.
Oh – one more thing! I can spell Endocrinologist! Yay, me!
AND – we haven’t had to shovel any snow yet!
