Turning My Struggles Into Songs


Hi!

My name is Siena, and I have multiple chronic illnesses, including some headache disorders. I love writing goofy song parodies to popular songs about chronic illness, so I wrote one to Rise by Katy Perry called Ice, and it is about headaches.

To listen to the original song click here.

Song Parody:

"Ice"

I won't just lie down

Oh, you will see me ice

Can’t write my homework

I’m too tired for that

I won’t just take pills

Even if I do scream my lungs out

‘Cause my brain, it will scream, oh

Oh, body of so little function

Please stop this, please stop this

Maxalt is in my veins

I feel it, I feel it

And I will not stand up

I’ll lie down, I’ll lie down

I will sleep

When, when the drugs are out of my blood

And I’m waiting on my next dose

They’re hiding from me and my brain

But still I ice

This is no good luck, no dream of mine

When I thought I had a handle on this

Think again

Don’t be surprised

I will still ice

I must stay conscious

Through pain and near syncope

So I call on the meds

I say

Oh, body of so little function

Please stop this, please stop this

Maxalt is in my veins

I feel it, I feel it

And I will not stand up

I’ll lie down, I’ll lie down

I will sleep

When, when the drugs are out of my blood

And I’m waiting on my next dose

They’re hiding from me and my brain

But still I ice

This is no good luck, no dream of mine

When I thought I had a handle on this

Think again

Don’t be surprised

I will still ice

Don't doubt it, don't doubt it

Oh, oh, oh, oh

You know it, you know it

Still ice

Just keep it, just keep it

Don’t be surprised,

I will still ice
