If only I’d known by Ann Murphy
If only I’d known a long time ago the way the things would turn out as I would grow.
Taking pills day after day
No difference in dose from December to May.
Cough and spluttering its not very nice
Shortening of breath affecting your life
Social life curtailed when things are bad
All in all you can feel quite sad.
Having a belly laugh not any more
Even a good cry is out of the door
Its hard to explain
You can’t make it right
Walking the floor through the night
What’s happened to my wardrobe
It gave me such a fright
Push and Shove
Squeeze and pull
They still won’t fit me right.
I didn’t know the tablets would have these side effects
Someone should have told me just what to expect.
There can be a lot of bad days
Good ones can be few
But make the most of everyone enjoying what you can do.
Being positive can be hard
But try with all your might
Cos after all you’re still alive
So follow your Doctors advice.
