Smile For Raynaud's

Posted by CFMBabs , 12 November 2008 · 698 views

Batten down the hatches, bring out the winter attire
Put on the layers and move closer to the fire
Don't go out in the wind and rain -- for sure a blue attack
Before you've even got there you'll be wanting to come back

You'll be wanting to drink plenty - no ice or fizzy juice
With fingers gone into spasm they won't be much use
You'll curse your condition, how it spoils the fun you have
And for a little spot of cuddling, your hubby will need Sat Nav!

You sit in an office waiting for the nurse to call
Looking at the ceiling and staring at the wall
This place is cold and lonely I'd go home if I could
I know I'll be ages coz the vampire's after blood

I hope the one they send me isn't a trainee nurse
I'm not really moaning but it couldn't really be worse
My veins are very choosy and just a little shy
I find I make excuses, for each time they try

The fifth time of trying, the nurse begins to shake
My arm is full of pin holes and both begin to ache
She got a little spot of blood, I ask if that's enough
But I have so many tests, they simply need more stuff

The attempts are now too many and she admits defeat
So I go back into the waiting room and sit upon on a seat
The room is full of strangers, a woman starts to smile
How long have you been here? -- I say well, quite a while!

We begin a conversation and I suddenly realise
That they all have sclero -- What a surprise!
Put the heating on full blast we're having an attack
Someone left the door open and didn't put it back

The life and times of a sufferer, sclero is the pits
I never feel beautiful, never get out my bits
I never eat a single meal, a funny woman indeed
When I use a whirring pump to deliver all my feed

So why am I complaining as I look around the room
I see smiling faces not dread or doom and gloom
I think life's what you make it and always keep a smile
It's not a special requirement but important all the while!
