Tired so tired

Of jumping through

The hoops

My doctor after

Eight years

Will no longer see me

The county hospital closed

Now over half the doctors

Were not contracted

Many in the medical profession

Left to do something else

Or leave town

My Psychologist

Thank God

Will still see me

A bright light

In this insanity

Have an appoinntment

Next week with someone new

After eight years or more

The thought not very apealing

But what choose do I have.

I can't play around

My health is not a game

Living with a Neuromuscular Disoder

Requires constant care

But I pray that this

Doctor is one who will listen to me

Who does not just brush me off

Runte was never that way

Always heard what I had to say.

Hope it works out! I know the feeling my doctor of many years left very recently, who knows why! But, I'm trying to get established with a new doctor as well. My first visit was Tuesday, seemed okay. My second visit will be in two far so good! Wishing you the best!

Michelle, I agree with Karla. If we had millions, we would have been in a private hospital, having one test after another done, until they could find how to cure what ails us. Neuromuscular disorders are nothing to fool with, and when the county, city, or state close a medical facility, they have no care about those that are ill or suffering. Our county hopsital here was a good hospital, but then it became Doyne, and now Froedert Lutheran Memorial Hospital, and the services there have gone into a choosy disposition. Hugs and prayers for you Michelle, you have powerfully penned a most and very sad crime against those of us who need medical care. Thank you for sharing, and maybe a few doctors have read this ... I hope.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy tothe world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your sister, Barbie

The rich get richer, the poor get poorer; the well fed get selfish, the hungry starve; the healthy get meaner and the sick get sicker (and die for lack of compassion). Sad. You're in my thoughts and prayers, Michelle, powerfully, sadly penned crime against the less fortunate.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
