Last year, Lady GaGa released a powerful song entitled, “Til It Happens To You.”
This song was not written for those with chronic illness; however, if you pay attention to the lyrics, you may find that it still resonates deeply with those who have lived in a world full of healthy people while suffering from intense and chronic pain. The words paint a picture for anyone who has dealt with loss.
“Til It Happens To You” received several awards and was nominated for an Academy Award in the category of Best Original Song in the 2016 ceremony. I have included a video of Lady GaGa’s performance below. Once you watch it and truly listen to the lyrics, I believe you will understand why this song has touched so many people, including myself.
