Bret Michaels Stops Concert Because Of Emergency

It wasn't a curtain that came crashing into Bret Michael's head last night that caused him to stop his concert after just three songs, but low blood sugar. Bret was playing a show in Manchester, NH and walked off the stage before being assisted by paramedics and then walking back on stage to tell the crowd he had to go before being carried off stage to his bus where he was in such bad shape that he could barely speak. That is the thing about diabetes. You can live with it and have a great life, but if you do not watch it all the time then something like this can happen. Bret has been living with diabetes since being diagnosed when he was a child, but sometimes you can just get so caught up in your day that you forget to check your numbers. He appears to be on the mend and hopefully he will be just fine. You know since he is fine that I just have to play the clip.

Good luck for him at least he was near somebody that could help him before he had a major incident.

"Since we know he's fine, here's a clip of Brett getting dropped by a curtain, Temple of Doom-style."

Ahaha. Enty, I could write you a sonnet, you fat bastard.

FSP said...

I hope there are videos all day.

Oh Bret, I made fun of your music back in the day because as much as I secretly loved it, GnR was just so.much.cooler. I fell for you during Rock of Love and now I worry about you. Mange mange you bald bastage.

Good morning guys!

Hi TTM!!

Violet said...

Dr Enty, diabetes expert. Just in case the gossip business ever ups and dies.

Hello all.

OneEyeCharlie said...

Good Morning, Sandy and TTM. Heeeeey, Kristin. Good Afternoon, Spunky MsViolet.

Not gonna lie... why work ethic is sorely lacking today.I may just dick around on the Internet all day long. Shhhhh. Don't tell the Director of IT. The guy's a tool.

Maybe I will try to integrate titles of Poison songs into my conversation throughout the day.

Also, to be clear: not making fun of diabetes. Horrible disease. Especially when it is that severe. Kind of impressed he managed to live as crazy as a life as he has. Plus: for my money,when he sings Talk Dirty To Me,it doesn't get much better

Talk Dirty to Us Charlie while youre doing the Unskinny Bop

Violet said...

Hey Charlie - I would surf all day at work too but they monitor your internet use and call out the worst offenders. 'Lucky' for me Enty starts his working day just as mine is ending.

Good morning all!
My good friends little girl was just diagnosed, she's just five and a bit...so sad that she'll have to deal with needles and watching her food her whole life. I know nada about Bret but I hope he recovers well...

But be careful, Charlie, Every Rose Has Its Thorn

Heeey Charlie! Hey fellow campers!

Enty is in an especially snarky mood today. We all win.

@FSP, you know I love you more than my luggage, but if E posts videos all day, I have a box cutter with your name on it.

(By box cutter, I mean a bunch of gifs. I'm Seven, not Se7en.)

That never gets old

Riven said...

Morning. Obligatory "Not it."

Seven of Eleven said...

All you ducks posting before me.

@BeckyMae, I remember a kid in my grade 5 class who had diabetes and got two fruit roll-ups a day to manage her diabetes. Childhood diabetes sucks and I wouldn't wish it on anyone, but I remember thinking, "What is this thing that equals two fruit rollups a day and where can I sign up?" Kids are so dumb sometimes.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Riven, you gotta save your "not it" for the afternoon!

Vera L- said...

Seven of eleven I so enjoy your Orphan Black gifs.

Sass71 said...

As a girl who went to a ton of Poison concerts in high school, I wish Bret well. They always put on one hell of a show.

BeckyMae said...

Oh Seven you reminded me of the time in primary school when I wanted the same medi-bracelet as the epileptic girl in my class! I was an attention whore from a very early age obvs.....

We need another season of . By the way, what happened to that muppet, Daisy? I'm sure she hasn't aged well and stripping can only last so long.

FSP said...

What's in the box? What's in the box?

ethorne said...

Should've listened to Wilford Brimley.


And I would so donate $8 to a Rock of Love kickstarter

Sprink said...

Geez Wiglet, I don't know if I laughed harder at Enty's fantastically flagrant piss-take video or your love thanks to him for posting it.

Either way, it's a great way to start the day's news.

Morning All,
One of my dearest friends has diabetes. Was there for a severe hypoglycaemic incident. So scary. People think they are drunk. A manager in a bar wouldn't let us in because he thought she was drunk even though there were 5 other adults in their 40's telling him she had diabetes. She has an insulin pump, we had to turn that off and call an ambulance. They had a tube of glucose and squirted it in her mouth, then another one. The scene in Steel Magnolias where Shelby has the hypo & argues with her mother, just like that. They get petulant & you have to hold it together to help them. Crying thinking about it. Wouldn't wish that bloody disease on anybody.

I have type 2 diabetes, and low blood sugar has never been my problem. Guess I'm lucky I just take a couple of pills everyday and have to count my carbs (which I do rather loosely).
