THE SHIP THEY CALL 'ALZHEIMER'S'

Hello my friend, welcome aboard

The ship they call 'Alzheimer's'

There's forty thousand under sixty-five

'Young onset' to 'Old timers'

 

It doesn't matter what you call it

The umbrella term's 'Dementia'

On the ship they call 'Alzheimer's'

Every day's a new adventure

 

Forget your hip replacement

And your osteoarthritis

They we...

Torticollis Torture

            This pain cripples me.

                         It works its way through
           me quickly,          
                               like lightening bolts
 spiking throughout my  
                         entire body.

 

 

It keeps digging...

 

deeper...
 

into

my bones and

muscles.

I can  feel them

knotting and

twisting and

What are Chiari malformations?

Chiari malformations are structural defects in the base of the skull and cerebellum, the part of the brain that controls balance.  Normally the cerebellum and parts of the brain stem sit above an opening in the skull that allows the spinal cord to pass through it (called the foramen magnum).  When part of the cerebellum extends below the foramen magnum and into th...

Rare Brain Disease




When you have a rare

brain disease with no cure yet




So long ago as me being

inside my mother's

womb a very bad rare

brain disease was

passed on to me while

I was inside of my mother's

womb



Then from that time I

have found out that my

disease is called Arnold Chiari

Rolling Curtains

entry picture

The rolling of the curtains,
Shimmering silvery black,
In an instant woke me up,
Stretched the curves in one, two, three.

A backbone bent unbroken,
A detour along the way,
A chosen path of loving,
Walking slowly in four, five, six.

Then the curtains rolled again,
My last piece of hope awaits,
Body laid and tied on the bed,
Pushed and pulled in seven, eight, nine.

Patiently watching the...

Bends in the Road

"Crooked!"

A voice sang through the pavement of your innocence. You wondered.
But ignored to listen. Then, regret eventually rushed through you when neglecting the voice has turned into a warning.

"I can do this...everything..."

And that same innocence blanketed your sight towards what could have been done. Such naivety comforted you with rising above the warning. By pushing yourself. So hard....

Pale faced love

My little pale faced love

Pixie now for you or closer

Hang on in there, it's proof it's working

This is just a sign of the clock ticking 

Ticking away the days to full health

Full recovery no less my lovely, you'll see

The pest shrinking daily for others to catch

Trust in their judgement and hold my hand tight

You'll be free soon my lovely, just you wait and see

Time

I want my little girl back

Back from the woes and worries she holds

Back to the days of freedom and fun

When we could wake carefree and calm and cuddling

Time will get us there, but it will take time

But time we have and time we've had

Deep memories of times to cherish and nourish

Forward looking of times to come

When our lives will have peace and the world can stop churnin...

HOSPITAL WAITING AREA

The man opposite my gaze

framed the wall with his stony face

under

How to recognize a stroke

how cancer affects us

first signs of memory loss

violence towards staff - paperwork.

All corporate stuff, advertising

opening up the game,

good clean living stuff, helpful to a fault,

inviting curiosity where there was none

only fear of the future.

HEALTH

BACON BUTTY

 

The advice comes from everywhere

The 'Spin Doctors' getting bolder

With lots of little anecdotes

To stop us getting older

 

So read it, take it all on board

You don't want any grief

Two minutes a day is all it takes

For you to floss your teeth

 

Two minutes hopping on each leg

"It's so good for the hip"

Where the hell does that come from?

It makes me wan...

A Shock Treatment

When I regretted
Why God is stingy
In showering me
With wealth
He took my health
Goading me
With a threat of death!

Praying when
I recuperated
I realized
Foolishly I had been
Daydreaming for wealth
Oblivious
My health
Is my
Number one wealth!/////

GOOD MORNING

entry picture

As the sun beats down

on another glorious day,

the blackbirds are singing

in their sweet little way.

 

The world is still

and my mind is at peace,

how I pray for this stillness

as it offers such release.

 

The sky so blue

and clear overhead,

the world still in slumber;

tucked up in their beds.

 

Dreaming of worlds

with strange designs

and, for now...

Doorway

The following poem, Doorway was published in The Outreach for Breast Health Foundation's Anthology: Beyond Memories (2006).


DOORWAY
by, Melissa R. Mendelson

Racing ahead of hope,
fear meets me at the door
to hear the news
that I already know,
and an icy hand
holds my heart,
silencing the rapid beats
still breaking against my chest.
There were moments in time
that I feared being here
at the door
and finally f...

Too Bad the World Doesn't Revolve Around Me?

So...What is it today ?

Who's next?

Will you accept me or reject me?

Nobody truly wants me for the form of existence that I am

I know I am not perfect

I have feelings

How does one live without these things?

Is it wrong for me to want what I cannot have?

I am only human

I am probably so human that I allow my own vulnerabilities transform me into an abomination

Smoking my life away

entry picture

To comfort me in times of trouble, to have and told

to lovingly clasp, like hasp and staple

if only I was still able to grasp and cling to the wrists

of the family that deserted me years before

for the same lost cause - I forget I'm not a little girl anymore.

 

Yet it makes no difference, I wasn't even legal before I succumbed to this evil -

for Heaven's sake, it...

Last Runes Cast

 

Face down in the mud, he paused before he rose

'Women pay a fortune and I'm covered to my toes'

Back among the runners, he tried again to jump

Over the high barriers, but he really got the hump

 

When soon for the third time he took a mighty fall

'You'd think that after all this time my feet would now play ball'

Some weeks went by before he had to go and seek some hel...
