WHEN YOU CAME TO CLAIM ME!!!!
BY BRENDA M BODANZA
I remember the day, like it was yesterday, when I stumbled and thought how funny
For now out of nowhere, I seemed to be ever so clumsy.
I didn’t pay it a lot of attention
Just continued to carry on without much anticipation.
You came to visit, every now and then, leaving little reminders, which would spark my imagination.
You became such a part of me, that your appearance made it hard to ignore you,
It became my desire to investigate your claim
Running from doctor to doctor seeking a name
With much persistence, explaining your game.
Seemed so many imposters act similar to you, though your traits eventually came shining through.
So many years of thinking, I could be crazy, for you hid yourself so well.
But your desire to steadily progress, gave me the drive to expose your presence.
I have to really “thank you”, for you helped me to build my skills of life.
I learned to fight for myself, to trust in myself, knowing that what many claimed was “only in my head”, was partially true……
For those 27 lesions that covered my brain, showed a bit too late….that MULIPLE SCLEROSIS…It really was YOU!!!
