Imagine if people with MS communicated all their frustrations in haikus…

Fatigue
House needs a tidy.
Not gonna happen. Craving
downtime. Urgently.

Unpredictability
Yesterday all good
Today I am bedridden
MS is like that

Doctors
"MS", so he says.
Does not make much sense to me.
When will I be cured?

Disease-modifying therapies
Rather than a pill
Or a stem cell transplant
Daily injections

Nutrition
What to eat for lunch?
Might lead to further disease…
Best abstain from all

Supplements
First sun, then tablets
To increase Vitamin D
And stop relapses

 

HaikuEmployment
Serious error.
Divulged disease condition.
Now am unemployed.

Parenting
Children require time
MS does too. So sometimes
TV is OK

Relapse
Defences are down
But you look great! so they say
Chaos reigns within

Please post haikus of your own! I'd love to read them.
