Paraparesis #AtoZofMS #AtoZChallenge #poetry

Paraparesis is weakness in one or both legs

For years
My legs have been

For years
I've blamed it on
My weight

But I was wrong
It's another symptom
of MS

weakness in my left leg

Every day
I get out of bed carefully
Will it hold?

It likes to
to be funny

But no humour found
when on the staircase
or out on town

Now a stick
stays close always
that's OK

Paraparesis can cause problems with walking and balance.  
It can also increase the risk of having a fall.
