Is today the day?

6 posts in this topic

This is a poem that I wrote to express the feeling I am having:

 

Is today the day?

 that I get another diagnosis.

Is today the day?

 I have another test that my body is subjected to another xray, MRI,or some other form of radiation in a test.

Is today the day?

  I have to make another hard decision about a treatment that could or could not save my life and make things better or worse.

Is today the day?

 I awake from my sleep to find that my hands and feet are frozen in one position no longer able to move 

Is today the day?

 My family get that call that send everyone into devastation.

 

    NO !

Today is the day

 that I live and fight through this all.

Today is the day

 That I have hope for a cure.

Today is the day

  That I put one foot in front of the other and do what I can and look my doctors straight in the eye and I say I will live.

Just for today.

Thank you.  

 

I was feeling depressed and frustrated this morning so at those times I often write poems.   It really helps me to understand myself.

Quiltfairy, the best thing about sharing how you feel is that it will resonate with someone, letting  them know that they're not alone. There's no guide to how our emotions will react to a life changing diagnosis and its continuing effects on us. When we end up riding the "emotional rollercoaster" we have no idea what's going on so what a relief to find out we're not the only one!

 

Take care.
