And all the while the drunkenness goes on

by Jane, UK


Why is it that everything I do?
from climbing the stairs to going to the loo,
is harder these days, I have to take care,
my legs feel so strange, I am never unaware.
My hands have no strength, it's difficult to grip,
and each night in bed my legs give me gyp.
My vision is blurred, my eyes give me pain,
not all the time but over and over again.

Worst of all is that everything I do
leaves me feeling dizzy, like I've had a drink or two.
Walking, reading and writing too,
makes me feel dizzy, like I've had a drink or two.

When my vision is bad and my eyes give me pain
I feel dizzy and disorientated, I think I'm insane.
My ears feel muffled, I lie in bed,
I can't read a book for the spinning in my head.
I just throw up if I move too quick,
and to close my eyes makes me feel sick.
So why is it so hard to get along?
And all the while the drunkenness goes on and on and on.

Worst of all is that everything I do
leaves me feeling dizzy, like I've had a drink or two.
Walking, reading and writing too,
makes me feel dizzy, like I've had a drink or two.

The diagnosis is MS and there's little can be done,
so I have to make the best of it, I can still have fun.
From one day to the next, I just have to get along.
And all the while the drunkenness goes on and on and on.
