What It's Like: A Personal Story of Suffering - Eyes

By Janice Veldman

They open
Or they don’t
Mostly they don’t
 Often only one opens
Seeing is difficult
 Already having double vision
Ordered to open my eyes
I try
One remains closed
That is the way it is with weak muscles
Strength comes and goes
The movement disorders of Parkinsonism
Ignorance and lack of understanding
Make hurtful comments
Must be faking
Having to defend
