I FACED A FEAR:
As you read I had a visit from "Dracula"
In the shape and form of a nurse.
To take some samples of blood,
Inwardly I did curse.

Well on Friday with intrepidation.
I rang the surgery for the results.
Having got through to the appropiate person.
I took a deep breath as the news she brought.

Everything they had tested,
Was "Normal" she said with glee.
My blood count,thyroid, liver/kindeys
Also sugar level was good yes indeed.

The only thing they didn't test was
My arthitis to ascertain if  it had spread.
But I have to see a consultant on Tuesday,
Another thing I am beginning to dread.

I should be over the moon.
As I hope to get new medication for Epilepsy.
Which for the past year.
What I have been taking has upset me.

I faced one fear on Friday.
No doubt will face another tomorrow(Tues.)
I won't run away from what lies ahead.
It only brings sadness and sorrow.

    1. Well Arlee I have had Epilepsy for 32 years so if I am on the right medication that should be ok. There are people worse off than I.
      Have a good week yourself.
