Don't Treat Me With Contempt

Don’t treat me with contempt,
You don’t understand my ailments.
I’m not depressed, what a great tag you have given me?
You’re a doctor you should know, shouldn’t he?

Sometimes my looks maybe solemn,
But my humour is still there,
You ain’t experienced my pains,
And I know its still there!

Why after all these years,
Do I still have to prove,
That my faculties
Have not changed,
I’m just stuck in this same old groove!

When I walk the bouncing will begin,
My brain rocks forward,
Then back again and again!
I get so dizzy and can tend to fall,
No one seems to understand,
No one at all!

Sometimes the pain is far too great,
Popping pills, trying to eradicate!
A permanent fuzzy feeling,
Deep inside my head!

My memories seem to have disappeared,
Especially short term, the feelings quite weird!
Alas its something I have to accept,
Knowing I’m still alive with no regrets!

If I wore a bandage around my head,
People would understand my broken brain,
No more questions to ask,
Excepted once again!

Artist's Description

With Head Trauma’s not many doctors realize the real happenings in the brain, and when you try to explain, they just can’t understand the feelings that you have and they just tag it with “depression” an easy word and place to put one in!
So Doctors, please sit down and listen lets hope you can understand better the plight of Head Trauma’s, they are not all the same, they affect people in many different ways!
