The sky turned grey the day after
To match my head the day after
I lay on the table and
allowed myself to be at the mercy of
doctors and this body
The one that just seems to
Keep failing me
Betraying me
When all I want is to
do this thing I feel called to do
I-
Motherless child
I-
Childless mother
Felt grey the day after
Cervix still open
Another lifeless love
Lifted from my body.

Check out this special episode where I talk about what Meniere’s Disease is, how I was diagnosed, my experience living with it, and the treatment strategies I use to manage the symptoms. If you’re curious to know more about what it’s like living with a disease that causes vertigo, ear pressure, hearing loss, and tinnitus, this is the episode for you.

If you have other questions about this disease or the other chronic illnesses I live with, please email me at lyss@nothingexistsradio.org or reach out to me on Facebook and I am happy to respond, no matter how personal!
