I wrote this poem a couple of years ago. when we we were jumping for dystonia! ..I hope it helps...

I'm getting ready for jumping-
Just hope I don't wobble or fall.
Want to join this campaign,
So I'll move with the pain,
But I'll lean for support on this wall.

The trick is controlling the muscles
For one leg just wants to go South,
While the other goes West
But I'm doing my best.
At least I'm not down in the mouth,

For I've recently been to have Botox
Though it's not for the lines on my cheek,
This relaxant is great,
I can see what I eat
And now I don't croak when I speak.

When I tell friends I sometimes feel muzzy,
And I can't always get out of bed,
They smile and they sigh,
But do they understand why
There's days when I can't turn my head?

My handwriting-trails cross the paper
Like a spider that isn't tee-total,
If my wrist jerks
Don't think I'm berserk,
The experience is not anecdotal.

On the flip side, my skin won't be wrinkled,
And in gloom I will not descend,
Been to loads of events,
Raised money and spent
Some time with a new set of friends.

So I'm getting ready for jumping,
I'm determined to keep straight and tall,
It's all for dystonia,
That's not next to Estonia!
It's my muscles just not playing ball!
