Once upon a time I was an ~120 lb. womyn
[too old for auto-metric-1]
a nurse who could transfer double-amputees on her own, with the most gorgeous gams-2,
and a perfect heart-shaped bum

Then I semi-retired and –
gained ~20 lbs. – all my friends said I’d never looked better.

Then THING-A happened and…

I shrunk to a 100 lbs. in mere months.
The proverbial “Healthy as a horse” FOR 47 years, I was
blessed w/ a constitution that ensured [Nse.-]Managers
I’D make MY shifts while others dropped around me.

  1. First came Early-awakening, which HAD left me awakening in the dark for ELEVEN YEARS;I have finally awoken in daylight – 2018!
  2. Then THING-B happened, Chronic Disease#1 d/t SIDE EFFECT of meds;
    pretty unforgivable considering thr environment I was inhabiting @ the time!
    Tardive Dyskinesia ROBBING me of my trademark, life-long smile!

[and ensuing, distinctive! laugh, that assured that altho 5 ft. 3″
could be located in ANY room, even a Ballroom!

3. Waiting in-the-wings was GOUT [of the foot] from my father

[women may inherit this only from their fathers, and it generally first appears circa menopause].

Then THING-A kind-of re-occurred,

BUT I Found THE greatest [and only] course in Niagara,
and I also have the best FMD.

4. BUT Next has come the un-bearable Chronic Disease#x.
leaving my life nothing but a fantasy.



1] DID YOU KNOW? Canada has been officially metric since 1980.
Compare THAT to advertising fliers…

2] plural noun: gams a leg, especially in reference to the shapeliness of a woman’s leg
