I don't pick songs that literally have something to do with illness rather I pick songs that speak to my feelings on my illness so Gravity by Sarah Barielles is my favorite and if you You Tube so you think you can dance and gravity that dance that also reminds me of how I feel....the man representing the illness.

I took the literal route this time, but your suggestions are great for creating an inspirational/feelings based playlist about chronic illness. Thanks for the suggestions Jenny.

LOVED THIS!! I was entertained for quite a while listening to your choices. My favorite song on your list is Fever, I remember seeing her on Ed Sullivan singing that song. She was so glamorous1
