Some Tuesday silliness


I wrote a poem for my doctor that I thought might amuse you all. I’ve had another injection today because I’ve decided having feeling in my fingertips is actually quite helpful.

To my doctor

Hello Mr. doctor, I hope that you’re ok,

I know you think I’m crazy and wish I’d go away,

I know you think it’s strange how I like to feel my fingers

Or survive the day without a nap

(That exhaustion really lingers).

I know you think my blood tests are ‘absolutely fine’,

You tell me that I’m anxious, I suspect you think I whine,

To me the movement in my limbs is not an added plus,

Although you think that’s curious, and that I make a fuss,

I hope you never end up at the mercy of a man,

Who says that he will help you (but somehow never can),

So to sum my thoughts up doctor, and I know that you will scoff,

But I bought some b12 from abroad and now I’ll say... 🤬🤬

(You weren’t very helpful 😆)

Brilliant - especially the end 😊. This is my letter to Doctors who say, ‘You are addicted, you like the rush blah blah !!

Dear Doctors,

I don’t understand your kind of stupid but I admire your total commitment to it.

Yours sarcastically,

Haha, that’s funny 😂

Ha ha ha ha ha ha!

That made me laugh aloud! Fantastic!

Thank you! x

That should be written in capitals in bold framed and put on the Drs office wall. That’s brilliant!

That is amazing!

Love it!


Love the non-rhyme at the end :)

I love it too ! Excellent ! 10/10 🥇
