A Parkie Poem

Somebody tell me it will all be okay,
Tell me tomorrow won't be like today.
Tell me this illness was just a big hoax;
A not-very-funny impractical joke.

If these things are not true,
And you can't tell me why,
Don't worry about it;
Goddamnit, just lie!

OK, denial has its place. We can visit, we just can't live there. Together we can make it. Hang on.

He he. That's what it was; I was visiting a river in Egypt; Denial. :-)

About Me

My photo
I'm a lucky lady. I have a wonderful husband of 27 years, a fantastic 25 year old son (I'm so proud of him!) a loving and supportive family, the best friends in the world, a job that I love, and... Parkinson's Disease. I was diagnosed in September 2006. That was a jolt, but I'm learning to deal with it.
