Good morning my spoonfully splendid spoonies, on this stormy-ish, overcast and yet to but looks like a rainy and dooms-ville type day here on the east coast! In lieu of the stormy weather here in the northeast today, I have re-told one of our favorite childhood nursery rhymes- Rain Rain go Away!- with a spoonie twist! I hope you all enjoy, and feel free to write your own verse to add in to our re-worked poem!
Rain, Rain Go Away!
Rain, Rain Go Away! You make my joints flare up all day! If I do too much I'll pay! And sleep away the rest of my day!
Rain, Rain please leave my town! You make it so tough for me to get around! A pain killer that works, I have not found! Rain, Rain Please leave my town!
Rain Rain you make me weep! As all I can do is try to sleep!When my joints are stiff and pain is deep! Rain rain you make me weep!
Rain Rain you're leaving now? The clouds are parting, as I say "Ciao" Can't you leave faster... don't you know how? Get out of my town, I'm tired of my joints screaming "OW!"
Sun Sun your back again? I have not seen you since I cannot remember when! But wait... Now I cannot go outside until the day's end! Or my lupus will flare, and a rash will begin! OH when you're a lupie, you can NEVER WIN!
And that is our spoonie re-make of a childhood classic, and one of my personal favorites. Now, truth be told, I love a good stormy day, especially If I can curl up in a ball on my big comfy chair and bum it all day long and rest and relax as my prednisone dose is SLOWLY (emphasis on the slowly) tapering back to my maintenance dose of 10mg.
Jolt-of-Java: "This pill you take twice a day before meals... And this pill you take right after I tell you what the other pills cost!"-LOL why spoonies take so much medication!
