The Diagnosis- Poem Style

The moment you hear your diagnosis for the first time,

your breath that you lost, is something you try to find.

You finally figured out why you’ve been suffering for so long,

you try not to react, you just strive to stay strong.

Tears unwillingly welt up in your eyes,

all you want is a long life, that’s the end prize.

You look weary into your loved ones eyes,

you just pray they won’t abandon you, through the lows and the highs.

You wonder what you ever did to deserve this,

life before your illness is something you will forever miss.

Now you will never take life for granted,

each moment with your loved ones will be in your brain, forever planted.

You work hard to have a new normal life, every second of everyday,

even though life is not handed to you, you know you will be okay.

  1. I love this. Hang in there girl. I have Fibro and Sjögren’s also. It’s so much more difficult, but we can get through this!!!! I’m here for you if you ever need anything. Surround yourself with people who understand your struggles and who appreciate your day to day accomplishments. Sometimes hour to hour! 💜💜💜

  2. Hey Mackenzie, you have a way with words. I believe the biggest stress reliever for me was getting a diagnosis. I have four autoimmune disorders and they all came with their own symptoms and frustrations. After getting a diagnosis, I felt like I could breathe.

    Your life is a gift even when it comes with complications. You are going to live a productive life. Live it to it’s fullest!

    1. Thank you so much, Brenda! I appreciate that! It’s a huge stress reliever to receive a diagnosis. I now have 4 autoimmune diseases as well and I just received another diagnosis. I’m sorry to hear you’re going through that. It brings it’s challenges but you are exactly right life is a gift and it just makes us appreciate life even more. 😊

  3. Your poem touched me! 😌 I have a new friend with Lupus and I’m just beginning to fathom the gravity of her life with a chronic illness. She is brave and is inspiring and teaching me about her struggles and successes every time we meet!
