#MySymptoms
I want to be able to move up to running, without becoming unreasonably puffed. To move around without being limited by my heart.

Oct. 2018: #MySymptoms ...

Nerves vibrate, turn me from
sedentary spoon to tuning fork.

Joints break up and make up
like quarrelling lovers.

Appetite has fled, to cohabitate
with Memory- far away from me.

Brain contains a storm
a mass of rain, clouds, and lightning
that waxes and wanes
from damp fog to hurricane.

Muscles tremor like mild earthquakes,
frequent, uncomfortable, but not dire.

Hands tremble. Feet freeze.

Urine leaks. Stomach screams.
Thoughts flee.

(Am I still me?)
