This took a LOT of courage to write. I'm going through a difficult time right now because there is something wrong with my legs (they shake / feel weak at random times) but no one can seem to figure out the problem.

My family especially is not helping matters...they're trying...but I'm a teenager, and their words are just not getting through my head.

All I want is an answer, and I believe writing this is a step in the right direction. Well, it's at least a step AWAY from depression.

There is something wrong

I know there is

But no one seems to understand

People seem to believe

That it's all in my head

Just a cry for more attention

The doctors say I'm in perfect health

Three MRI's, two X-rays, tons of bloodwork

And nothing is there

People tell me it's stress

That I need to relax

Try to work through the tough situations

The doctors tell things might be better

If only I would talk

To a professional listener

People stand in my way

Feeding me words I cannot say

Stopping me from taking the doctors advice

There is something wrong

I am convinced

Though no one else seems to see

Regardless of what they say

They cannot stop me:

I will discover answers somehow

Perhaps I am normal-

I know I am sane

But I will find out, once and for all.
