Addendum to "Dealing with it"

I left out a big part of what helped/helps me deal with all this: music

Music has always marked certain times and places in my life. The songs that meant something to me at that time are tightly tied to those memories. Sometimes it’s a line from the song, other times just the tune. It's a random mix some of it a bit cheesy but it's what touched me.

Here’s the playlist from the past few months:

  • Leave It All Behind – Nya Jade (leave it all behind - the chaos and the fear)
  • My Denial – Nya Jade ("here in my denial I stand trial for what I've done. Redemption..")
  • Too Little Too Late – JoJo (This one brought tears to my eyes just about every time, not wanting to ever have to say I did too little, too late to figth diabetes)
  • Don’t Look Back – Antigone Rising
  • Lucky Denver Mint – Jimmy Eat World ("you're not bigger than this, not better, why can't you see...")
  • All These Things That I’ve Done – The Killers (dealing withthe guilt)
  • I Can’t Take It – Tegan and Sarah
  • Live Again – Better Than Ezra (finding the strenght to really live not just get by)
  • All at Once – the Fray ("sometimes the hardest thing & the rigth thing are the same")
  • Let Go – Frou Frou (let go of all the anger at diabetes)
  • Jumper – Third Eye Blind ("cut ties with all the lies you've been living in")
