    thats mean if you just hate him then why are you watching his performance

  • Anonymous

    omg i was there it was AMAZING!!! the first night he made it kinda short. but the
    second night he made it really long and he would play the piano for us to sing
    and he said “i just love to hear you guys sing” and he was smiling soooo muchhh
    it was adorable!!! they said we were the best audience on tour yet!! and you could
    see it on their faces!

  • Bethany

    wow… whenever he tlks about his diabetes i cry!

    okayyy… so now we’re fighting about people actually
    HAVING the disease? wow. chill out. ALLLL of you.
    my best friend is a diabetic and she hates nick.
    think that’s wrong? just watch what she says in this
    video! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QyODBxhMAQ4
    __________________________

    I honestly think you’re friend is acting like an idiot.
    Disease stealer? WTF? What is this … third grade?
    She’s acting as if she’s the first person ever to get the disease, when the people who previously lived or were born before her have had the disease as well … So technically she’s a “disease stealer” too. Hypocrite. Maybe if she listened to the lyrics more carefully she’d be able to decipher that the song is actually about Diabetes and the process of not knowing, questioning, confusion, struggles, etc.

    Nick…you rock! You are a gift from above.

  • CHANCE it

    He is such an INSPIRATION to me and I am sure to a lot of other girls too!Nick is so HUMBLE about it and handles it so well that it makes me wanna cry. Because I know how hard it is to go through something like that. I am sure that being famous and a teen idol makes it all that harder to deal. YOU FASCINATE ME NICK!!!!

    don’t you “stfu” ?

  • Mandyyy

    wow. actually diabetes is really manageable compared to something like cancer. yeah its inconvenient, but you can still take care of it.

    i’m not saying that what nick’s doing isnt wonderful because it is. its not just about diabetes, its about any obstacle you need to over come in your life.

    and that was soo rude to say about a doctor “biggest loser doctor”? newsflash: doctors don’t care if you call them “losers”

    so how about YOU go play in the sandbox? that person was just telling a story, she didnt say she agreed with it.

    god, everyone on oceanup is so quick to jump down each others throats.

    Nick talks in all the applause here. I wanted Miley & Nick to stage on Stage Longer when they performed BTS.. They got off the stage too fast. They should of just let the crowd go wild. It was definitely an EPIC moment. JB said the fan reaction was fantastic. The fans screamed non stop, I don’t know how they kept singing..

    I’m not saying that what the person said was right, but everyone deals differently with grief.

    some people tend to be angry and lash out (i believe that the person later on said that they have diabetes). some people just don’t know how to deal with it and seeing someone up on stage doing something that they know they could never do is upsetting.

    Actually, conventionally it’s called Type A and Type B. Type 1 and Type 2 are alternate terms for the disease. Just like juvenile and adult-onset are also used to describe Type A/1 and Type B/2. You should know what you are talking about before you say something.

    omg when i went to the burning up tour i felt the same way! like everyone was crying and me and my cousin were just kind of like “aw that’s great” but we definitely weren’t any where near tears.

    i felt so awful about it… but it just didn’t seem to touch me that much which is weird because i really do like nick and i think he’s great and i think its awesome that he talks about it and stuff.

    but the speech just didn’t really do it for me.

    Nit to scare you guys or anything, but Diabetes is SERIOUS. People die younger than life expectancy & you can lose a limb if not regulated. It is extremely hard on the body. You have to check you sugar 12 times a day and monitor everything you eat & you can go into Diabetic shock real quick. My Aunt got Diabetes after giving birth out of the Blue. She always took care of herself & her Diabetes but still died at 56. While 56 sounds old cause we all here are in our teens, I assure you its’s not!

    Um, I actually have Type A Diabetes. I, as my opinion, think he takes this speech thing too far. I mean, yeah, it’s hard as hell to live with it, but I wear a pump, and does he. Most of the time, it’s like I’m normal. Honestly, I think he’s served as a great inspiration, but there is a such thing as taking it overboard. It seems like he uses it more for promotion and sympathy than awareness and inspiration now. He needs to stop always talking about it.

    ‘m pretty sickened by some of the comments on here.
    Some of you cold-hearted morons need to get some
    respect. Sure he deals with it differently than others, he’s trying to get others to understand and people with Diabetes to not feel so alone. He’s just helping those who have no clue about it and are going through what he went through.
    To be honest before I heard this speech a while ago I had no clue Diabetes was this serious and that difficult. And you know what Nick Jonas could have just said you know what I have diabetes feel sorry for me do stuff for me blah blah. But no he works harder than most people WITHOUT a illness and has never asked for sympathy – he just uses his story to support others and help towards finding a cure.
    You know what I’m so fed up of sick comments- if you were saying that about my family memebers i’d be so pissed off – to be honest don’t like JB or Nick Jonas get the heck off the post about him moron.
    And tbh not only is Nick an inspiration but his family too – they help him deal with it and keep a strong family wall around him when he needs them.
    So tbh don’t like JB why click on this and post a comment it screams “I have no life”.
    Purchase a Diary and write down your spiteful comments there i’m sure it’s the only place they are valued :).

    I agree with everything you wrote! I can’t believe what some people are writing. They are just obviously ignorant to what type 1 is all about. REALLY all about. It is sickening to read these comments. Funny this is, i have NEVER heard Nick whine about diabetes, but gosh alot of people are whining like there’s no tomorrow on this post.

    Wow, you guys are horrible. Diabetes is a disease, and do you know what the hell it does to your body? 10 years ago my grandfather got a cut under his foot that never healed and because the wound would not close, he kept getting serious infections to the point where they almost had to amputate his foot. Yes, Diabetes can lead to all of those things. Thank god the technology today has eased up some of the discomforts, but Nick is singing a song about an experience that he has to deal with. Can you imagine being told you have a disease and thinking that you’re going to die? The song is a way of comfort to not only him, but to others as well. Did you not hear the part where he says that he is told he is an inspiration to so many people everyday and he said he wanted to say that we are his? Even if you’re not dealing with a disease, the song can apply to almost any bad situation you’re in, because for every problem, there is a solution, there is a cure. His speech is telling a story, one that he wants to share with the world. Because he knows how easy it is for people to just give up, he’s been there, he feels like giving up some days too. It’s a strong, emotional, and inspirational speech, and it’s beautiful.

    I definitely agree with you. I have friends who have diabetes and most of the time I forget they even have it. I can’t imagine the level of difficulty in managing it, but my friends live their lives pretty much the same as everyone else. I sympathize with them, but it is not constantly a topic of conversation, actually I think after knowing them all my life, it’s come up maybe 3 times on a tough day or something.

    Not trying to be rude here, but are you being sincere? Because there is no Type A diabetes! It is called Type 1, or it is sometimes also called juvenile diabetes. I have never, ever heard it referred to as Type A, by anyone, that is why I have a hard time believing you are sincere.

His speech is telling a story, one that he wants to share with the world. Because he knows how easy it is for people to just give up, he’s been there, he feels like giving up some days too. It’s a strong, emotional, and inspirational speech, and it’s beautiful.

    I definitely agree with you. I have friends who have diabetes and most of the time I forget they even have it. I can’t imagine the level of difficulty in managing it, but my friends live their lives pretty much the same as everyone else. I sympathize with them, but it is not constantly a topic of conversation, actually I think after knowing them all my life, it’s come up maybe 3 times on a tough day or something.

    I am calling BS on you too. The chances of having one friend with Type 1 is one thing, but having more than one, just randomly, is pretty unusual, do you realize that?

    Laura | July 16, 2009 1:10 PM | Reply I’m pretty sickened by some of the comments on here.
    Some of you cold-hearted morons need to get some
    respect. Sure he deals with it differently than others, he’s trying to get others to understand and people with Diabetes to not feel so alone. He’s just helping those who have no clue about it and are going through what he went through.

    To be honest before I heard this speech a while ago I had no clue Diabetes was this serious and that difficult. And you know what Nick Jonas could have just said you know what I have diabetes feel sorry for me do stuff for me blah blah. But no he works harder than most people WITHOUT a illness and has never asked for sympathy – he just uses his story to support others and help towards finding a cure.

    You know what I’m so fed up of sick comments- if you were saying that about my family memebers i’d be so pissed off – to be honest don’t like JB or Nick Jonas get the heck off the post about him moron.

    And tbh not only is Nick an inspiration but his family too – they help him deal with it and keep a strong family wall around him when he needs them.

    So tbh don’t like JB why click on this and post a comment it screams “I have no life”.

    Purchase a Diary and write down your spiteful comments there i’m sure it’s the only place they are valued :).

    so uh when i told my mom (who is a doctor) that nick jonas has diabetes and about a little bit longer and his speech etc…

    she was like ‘he needs to stop whining… diabetes is completely manageable’

    awkward.

    uh you don’t know anything at all about this person. maybe they volunteer at a hospital or clinic. so don’t say that it’s unlikely that they know that many people. maybe she knows a family and several of them have it.

  • WOW wtf

    You guys need to shut up. People deal with things differently. And just because your “friend” with diabetes doesn’t act like nick, who cares? He/she ISN’T Nick. And besides, Nick’s speech isn’t JUST about diabetes. He’s giving hope to EVERYONE, he says “whatever is going on in your lives”. He just uses his diabetes as an example. He hasn’t let it slow him down, and you shouldn’t let whatever struggle you have in YOUR life slow you down.

    Of course you dumb little teenies wouldn’t understand. I guess it’s too deep for you.

    hahahaha are you kidding me? diabetes is an disease. it can kill you sometimes.
    millions people DO live in this world with it, yes they may get through each day but they also struggle a lot too. annddd he is helping everybody he can to find a cure for this disease. imagine telling somebody who has cancer, that its not that bad. you obviously need a serious reality check here because you dont get it. not everybody likes nick but
    you all dont have to be so rude. think about having diabetes and reading some of these comments on here. imagine how they feel. think about that
