Lies, Lies, Lies

WEGO writing challenge day fourteen:
Write a poem in which every line is a lie or misconception about your illness.

It's nothing to worry about.
It's only dry eyes.
It's only a dry mouth.
Just drink more water.
Nothing else will change.
This is what happens when women get old.
Get more exercise. That will take care of everything.
Lose weight. That will take care of everything.
Wear crystals. That will take care of everything.
Read this book. Then you'll know that your negative thoughts caused everything.
It's nothing to worry about.

My personal fav: "Your symptoms will be just a nuisance."
Sorry, but anything that is life altering is NOT a nuisance.
