Battling by Blair Gaulton

Feeling blood sugar’s snow;
getting tired and slow;
enveloped in its embrace.
Mind is starting to get numb;
test and do something;
before I feel undone.

Live Your Life by Blair Gaulton

Live Your Life
Sickness, illness, and disease
are a part of life.   
It is important;
that you do not let it; 
be used to take away your rights. 
Nor stop you from doing;
what you want to do;
with your life. 
You might have to fight; 
against sickness, illness or disease;
every step of the way.
Never give up.
You must live your life every day.

The Combination by Blair Gaulton

The Combination
Had a bad headache; 
went out for a walk. 
Did not pay attention,
got lost. 
Blood sugar dived;  
hauled out some food; 
devoured it, 
feeling good. 
Now know where I am; 
heading  back to my neighbourhood.

Alzheimer’s Ocean by Blair Gaulton

Alzheimer’s Ocean
Swept far from shore;
lost in a fog,
nothing is clear.
Suddenly sun appears;
you recognize everything,
and know where you are.
Fog returns, you’ve lost your way;
until sun returns another day.

A Perspective About Disease by Blair Gaulton

A Perspective About Disease
Disease makes all who have it displeased because it lessens the ease of our lives. We must fight to ensure it does not win the upper hand in our life. Most of us are unsure there will be a cure anytime soon, whatever disease we may have. Rather than live a pipe dream; we accept the reality, yet refuse to give up. Some of our days are tough and rough because of our battles against it. We will never quit! Whatever limitations we have we will adapt. Our goal is to live ours controlling our disease and not it us!
