Simplification( a poem of resolution)

Went to the doc the other day...
Went to the doc the other day...


I went to the bone doctor the other day, with this miserable pain in my hip,

After I had my blood pressure taken, the kindest nurse gave me a nice tip.

The docs got a way with words, she said, so hang on with a strongest grip,

She was right to a tee and I never quite knew, by his words, if he gave a flip.



told me to hang on with a firm grip...
told me to hang on with a firm grip...


My new physician then told me that I had a strange case, known as very unique,

Pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism, was its weird name, as a thyroidal mystique.

I was at a loss for words, after his diagnosis, it seemed so atrocious, right bleak,

I was soon despondent and very depressed, as a new psychiatrist, then to seek.


I needed a psychiatrist...
I needed a psychiatrist...


My psychiatrist seemed a wise professional, I thought she really knew her stuff,

She went right to work, to quiz me so well, as my old doc I then hoped to rebuff.

The first words from her mouth were easy to understand, next I wasn't so sure,

There she went again using those big terms, looked like I'd never have a cure.

help me...
help me...


She prescribed for me a most common old drug, said any brain it would de-bug,

Her new diagnosis was unreal...Floccinaucinihilipilification... then gave me my hug.

I felt so helpless, to be withdrawn, walking outside, gave my last hair strand a tug,

Decided to leave one pic behind, took a selfie of my depressed and hopeless mug.

Mamma... I need help...
Mamma... I need help...


As I opened the site on my computer that day, I was surprised and so relieved,

The meaning my psych gave to my odd condition, was nothing, if I just believed,

My old doc who said I was so ill, he was dismissed, committed, just the other day,

Still wears a white jacket everywhere he goes, a rose in his teeth, dancing away.

Thanks Eric. Yep, there are so many docs just like that aren't there...of course some folks like more wordiness. It makes them feel more important I guess.whonu

I loved this! Super original text, with pictures that make you smile on a gloomy day. I can tell you one thing, I relate tremendously to the type of doctors you describe. I'm always fighting to get straight answers and more direction on this most complicated illness I have called hypothyroidism. Every time I attempt to explain how I feel to these people; I feel like I get Donald Trump answers. It's a whole lot of made-up words and b*lls**t. lol.

Thanks for the smile! :)

I agree my friend. Sounds like you need to see a new endocrinologist. I found out the hard way several years back. I had a pituitary tumor(benign) and went through an operation. We can't give up and must keep on trying. Best wishes my friend. whonu

You've got me on pins and needles, whonu. So what do those big fangdangled words mean?

Legitimate words sometimes used by doctors who have to take a refresher themselves on its real meaning. Thyroidal problems or general terms for illnesses are often made to be much more complex in order to hide behind, not to forget to give well deserved praise for the legitimate service shown by many in the field of medicine. Oh well. whonu
