Suddenly my world stood still

And suddenly I woke

Suddenly my world had changed

And I had had a stroke

Suddenly a whispered word

But in my head I shout

Suddenly the words are there

But I can’t get them out

Suddenly my arm is wrong

My leg is not the best

And suddenly I’m tired now

And I will need to rest

But gradually the words will come

And gradually I’ll talk

And gradually my legs will move

And I will start to walk

And gradually I’ll start to see

There’s changes I can’t hide

And gradually I’ll come to know

I still am me inside

I work in health and have been with the same supportive team for over 7 years. They are all aware of my diagnosis and this helps tremendously especially while I get used to the idea of my diagnosis. My parents both had Parkinsons, so I guess my odds were higher than most.
