oh my bones , they ache with pain. it’s that old arthur acting up again . from head to toe, from my knees to my elbows.
would anyone understand, or do they even want to know.
the agony I feel I try not to let it show.
I go to the doctor to ask for relief ;
he looks at me with a sigh of grief.
he says he wants to help.
so he gives me meds for the pain.
this old arthur bothers me every day
it dont care come sun shine or rain.
just to pay the doctor bills is driving me insane.
why should i lie , i have nothing to gain.
I don’t like how it feels, I don’t like taking pills
and it shur don’t give me a thrill.
my toes are all crunched and they hurt a whole bunch.
whenever I go out somewhere, it hurts to walk..
I’m so out of breath I can hardly talk.
not to mention the fact that I even have pain in the small of my back.
Oh’ I know its no crime to hear someone wine,
but I wish I didnt have so much pain all the time.
a wheelchair might help but I dont like to bother..
I’m not the kind to make fuss or hollar. I try not to worry,
but with all these aches ……..
when I do find a lover ..they wind up to be fakes.
see..I don’t want my family to think Im a flake
so I have to put up with it no matter what it takes.
can you imagine how my fingers have a twist, it hurts all the
way through my knuckles to my wrists.
with all this mess, its no wonder I’m pist,
if I explained it all I’d have to big of a list.
man ‘ I hope this crap ain’t contageous I wouldn’t want
to give it to my family or friends.
I figured it would be bad, when it first began.
my shoulders get achy and thats not all
my friends all go out and they have a ball, I’m stuck
in my chair to stare down the hall.
I sit here alone with this arthritis problem
cant go to far cause if I aint limpin I’m wobbeling.
Won’t do no good to moan or groan, I consider my self to be lucky
to still live at home.
althou I do need a brake for goodness sakes
how much of this am I expected to take.
I don’t think its funny, this ol arthritis is no joke
especially when it hits us older folks.
I worked hard all my life and kept my family a good name
sometimes I feel useless , this puts me to shame.
well’ to some people I know I’m a pain in the butt,
Just wish there was someway to get out of this rut.
when i think about it I feel like a slouch…so I just grab my pills
and take a nap on the couch..
this disease should leave me alone ..get out of my
life and out of my bones. stop destroying people and what time they
have left in their homes. so here’s to mr. arthur you slithering
snake aking people lose their balance and causing them
to shake..you’r no good to life no one wants you around,
you won’t be bothering us when the rite medacine is found.
so that is my story ,some ome please fin a cure, I’m not the only one with arthritis i’m sure.
after hearing all this my Doctor was confused, he said he was glad not to be in my shoes..the meds they did help me but I need some love,
I asked him to put the word out to help people like us, read this to patients and tell others to think of all of us who suffer from arthritis and don’t be afraid to give a relative or a friend a big hug.
God bless you all , that ol arthurs got gall
he will attack anyone, watch you’r step and don’t fall.
