Its ok to be scared

norrms Member Posts: 41 Courageous
Written NINE years ago when i was first diagnosed with dementia aged just 50, please share if you wish to..

Ok to be

It’s ok to be scared he said to me,
Just after telling me I’d got AD,
That’s ok for you to say,
Don`t you know you’ve just ruined my day?
Sitting there without a care,
Looking over your glasses in you big plush chair
What happens now, do I pray?
Or just carry on from day to day,
As if nothing’s wrong? That should be fun,
When you`ve just said my life is done,
What do you mean there is no cure?
Of that are you absolutely sure?
Well I for one do not believe,
That these symptoms you can’t relieve
So I will go now and try my best
To be the winner of my new Quest!!

There is always hope, best wishes, Norrms and family

i was also once a little angry ...........................

    Hi @norrms, I like your poem. 
    It is really poetic too. I wrote few poems as well. May share here one day. As most of mine are in my native language. I think I have 3 in English so far. Anyway, I read psychological article few years ago (after going true incredible pain in my life and unpleasant experience better to forget about) that due to  r traumatic experience in life , your brain is undergoing a switch between right and left sides. If you were more scientific person in deep intreats what, why, how and where you become more artistic soul. 
    I then analyse my approaches before my health problems and after the medical condition tried to take control over. I come to the conclusion it is true. All my life I was such a scientific person getting to know how everything is functioning but that I drop my interest and become more creative. It is incredible how our lives change after experience related to medical conditions/ disability. 

    I always say my life turn up side down. 

    Have a nice weekend.
