OH THE PAIN, THE MADNESS.

HI JOURNAL.
 
SIT DOWN AND WRITE WHAT YOU THINK,
AND THINK NOT WHAT YOU WRITE.
 
COME, LET US TALK OF MANY THINGS,
OF SHOES AND SHIPS AND CEILING WAX,
AND CABBAGES AND KINGS,
AND WHY THE SEA IS BOILING HOT,
AND WETHER PIGS HAVE WINGS.
                                          EDWARD LEAR.
 
I DO NOT HAVE A DISEASE OF ANY KIND, 
I DO NOT SUFFFR  FROM PARKINSON'S DISEASE.
I WILL NOT BE DESCRIBED IN SUCH NEGATIVE TERMS.
SUFFICE TO SAY 'TRAVELING WITH PARKINSON'S CONDITION.'
 
THERE YOU GO, AND THERE I GO.
HEY LOOK AT ME, I'VE GONE CRAZY.
WELL THAT'S AS MAY BE.
 
IF THAT BEING SO,
THEN WHAT OF THE GUY WHO,
ACCUSES HIS WIFE OF FAKING PARKINSON'S,
SHEAR MADNESS, PERHAPS ?
I AM REMINDED OF THE SAYING -
'THEY WHOM THE GODS WISH TO DESTROY, 
THEY FIRST MAKE MAD.'
 
A MEDICARE SYSTEM THAT,
FOR THE SAKE OF A LOUSY $800,
HAS FORCED SOMEONE TO STOP AND DROP,
ONE OF HER PRESCRIBED PARKINSON'S MEDICATIONS,
NOW BEING UNAFFORDABLE TO HER.
 
OR THE PATIENT IN HOSPITAL,
FOR SURGERY UNRELATED TO PARKINSON'S,
BEING GIVEN THE WRONG HIGH DOSES,
OF THE WRONG ANTI PARKINSON'S DRUGS.
AND I'M CRAZY ?
SOME THINGS ARE NEVER QUITE,
WHAT THEY SEEM.

The medical system sucks basically and unless you are rich you do not receive proper care. Sometimes even if you are rich you do not receive proper care. Why can\'t doctors try to catch things BEFORE they happen instead of waiting till you are dying of something THEN treating you for it. If only we could all be healthy till we die and just turn into angelic, sparkly beings and float up to heaven at our time. Why does life have to be so hard and painful and scary? I do not understand this.
