WELCOME TO MAY EVERYONE>
HOPE IT'S A WONDERFUL MONTH FOR YOU:
THIS MONTH I AM NOT INSECURE
BUT FULL OF HOPE AS I AM FIGHTING A CAUSE:
I am no spring chicken,
But am Epiletic nevertheless.
I have had this illness for thrity two years,
And it's been no worry I confess.
That is until last year,
When my long term medication was taken away.
Due to not being manufactured anymore,
Each day I've had to pay.
Pay with the side effects of the new drug,
Which is unpleasant to say the least.
My doctor wouldn't do anything about it,
Under my breath I called her "A Beast"
Really she is a lovely lady,
She wrote to a consultant for me to see.
I felt something was at last being done.
Something being done for me.
Last week she paid me a visit,
This is what was said to me.
I will have to wait until OCTOBER
Until the consultant I could see
I know if I were ten-to twenty years younger,
The UK. Health service would advise,
An earlier appointment,
I've seen this this ageist happen before my very eyes.
Well, I'm not prepared to wait that long,
Many phone calls I have made.
To complain about my situation,
My hopes will not fade.
You see I have no one to speak up for me,
And "There;s plenty of life in the old dog yet".
I will not be satisfied,
Until a new appointment date has been set.
So yes, I am a rebel with a cause.
I won't take this laying daown.
I've still a smile on my positive face.
Not some tearful frown.
