I am a mother, grandmother, wife and a white-collar worker

I was a provider to so many, perhaps just for you

My mind questions endlessly, about what I should do

While I search for some answer, I looked for a clue

So I went to see my doctors, to get some answer

The questions the probing and the tests I had to endure

I was diagnosed with Primary Sjogren Syndrome

An autoimmune disease I have never heard of before

I freeze as I went through the door

I did some research, but the result just went over my head

Sjogren's Syndrome is a chronic disorder

Of the immune system, a tall order

It’s a long-term autoimmune disease, they say

In which my white blood cells attack me all over

The salivary and tear glands are infected

The disease attacks my joints as well as my lungs

What can be done about, this affliction of mine

I feel I’m a failure, racked with pain all the time

Once my life was mapped out, and I was going damn fine

But all I do now is worry, and in private I wish I could cry

But my tear has gone dry

And I don’t understand why!

Oh! That's a symptom of my Sjogren

This pain manifests itself very day

The stubborn and aggressive force at play

It never takes a day off, no way

I woke up every day crippled with pain

The simplest of tasks became a physical drain

My emotions are polluted, by excruciating pain

Sjogren is holding my body in chains

My close family and friends, proclaim

I feel so ashamed when they give me support

I was once a winner at, this life and its game

Now I have to battle, to stay in the game

To make it through each day

I learn to rely upon many as time passes by

I walk a little slower

I can't stand up on my first try

The aches and pain last all day

But somehow I get by

A walker or a wheelchair helps me get there

At times, I feel I'm a burden

No matter what they say

I began to look for solutions

But this pain is always there

Don’t think about “what if.”

It’s not my attempt to scare

Life isn't always fair, so don’t despair

How much is left to chance

With life, you only get one chance

Just have compassion for others

And show them that you care
