My pallaitive care nurse was talking to me last week about doing something to help me deal with all the changes and all the side effects of my chemo. I told her musice helps a lot and so does writing, I told her about my last poem and she is now going to use it in their welcome packages to new patients. She also said she might put it up in the office. I thought I would share it with you all, I know some will totally understand what I am talking about. I hope this reaches some hearts and let them know you are not alone in this walk we are forced to march.

You are not alone
by
Anne Behymer

I wake up and you are there
by my side

I try to go for a walk and
and you slow my walk
to a crawl

I try to have a bit to
eat, and even that
I can not do without
you

Why wont you go away
I am so tired
You hide sleep so well
I seek but can not
Find peace

Must you stay so long
Must I feel you
All day long

Cancer was not enough you
Had to tag along
You make my day and nights
A living hell

Cancer you and your friends
I can beat
But Pain you knock me
Off my feet

Love, Hugs, and Prayers
Anne

so do I my mom and I were talking about this today my life has changed so much because of one catscan in the ER when I went in because I was having problems breathing. Really not only my life but the life of my mom and dads, I am now not able to pay rent and they watch me like a hawk because they don't know when this diesase will take me from them.

My pain has gotten better I just hate that I have to use such heave medication to keep it under control I can not drive until I am off it so I feel like I am stuck at home and any time I need to go some where I am a burden to my family and friends. I am praying for the day that I don't have to use morphine anymore.

Love, Hugs, and Prayers
Anne

And all of us will celebrate with you when you reach that day when morphine is no longer needed!
