Ignorance!

Posted by CFMBabs , 17 May 2009 · 966 views

Ha,ha, ha, hee, hee, hee.
The sound of laughter directed at me
In a daft hat and sensible shoes
And my fingertips have got the blues
Yes, I was nineteen a tender age
And had just begun to earn a wage

Look at that, what could it be?
I didn't understand then, you see
It seemed the perfect party trick
Didn't know it would make me sick
First it was one, then two and three
First on one hand, what was happening to me?
Then it was both, something not right
So I went to the doctor that very night

Don't worry, my dear, coz I've seen loads
Woman of your age, you've got Raynaud's
It's really nothing of great concern
Go away, there's nothing to learn
You won't die and you're not the first
So please don't worry or fear the worst

So home I went without a care
This loss of touch I'll grin and bear
It only happens when I'm cold
So down the river I was sold
How ignorance can be so cruel
A clever doctor sure ain't no fool
If he says don't worry it's okay
Then why not go on my merry way

The years went by and how I regret
Not questioning things I'd rather forget
If only I'd known what lay ahead
I'd have never listened to what he said
For Raynaud's wasn't no party piece
In fact the problem would never cease

Thirty years went quickly by
In my forties now am I
Can't eat, have a limp, in fact I'm a mess
Not the woman I'd hoped to be, I guess
Now I'll be lucky to get through the day
Without any pain along the way
This Raynaud's thing is not much fun
In a country that barely sees the sun!
