Invisible Illness Poem by, Lolly
It crept up on me, like a thief in the night
Not only effecting my well being, also my sight
Visually impaired, weight loss, palpitations
I wonder, would I’ve needed hospitalisation.
Sent to the Endocrimologist to treat this disease
I’m only thankful I’m not paying extortionate fees
Blood tests taken at least every 6 to 8 weeks
Let’s hope I become stable after this last tweak
Educate, advocate and not forgetting to defecate.
