I go swimming every week
So my legs won’t feel tired or weak.
Don’t know why my legs have to swell.

GO AWAY LYMPHEDEMA!


Why me?
I go swimming every week
So my legs won’t feel tired or weak.
Don’t know why my legs have to swell.
A disease created in hell.

Why me?
A bigger nuisance there can’t be.
It makes life much harder for me.
Humidity is my enemy
As I cry out, “Stay away from me.”

Why me?
I want to begin a day feeling well.
That’s why I have this story to tell.
Life has these hurdles we must overcome.
Most of them aren’t any kind of fun.  

Why me?
This question has no answer for me.
It is just the way things have to be.
My father suffered from this in quiet.
I will follow his lead and not riot.

Losses

My mother had dementia before she died. She was blind most of her life. When she began to lose her memories, my heart broke for her. She became a person trapped in her own body with no colors or lights and little knowledge of who she is or was.
It was a hard road for her. When she finally succumbed at the end, part of me was relieved that she was free and maybe in a better place with my father and brother.

Was it wrong for me to feel a little relief that she was finally set free?  Is she in a better place?
