Aly Dumpty Sat on a Wall

Exactly two years ago, Aly Dumpty sat on a wall and Aly Dumpty had a great fall. For two years now, all of the king's horses and all of the king's men have been trying to put Aly Dumpty together again. Two years ago, Aly Dumpty fell off of an invisible wall and her life shattered into pieces all around her. The last weekend of January, 2010, was when I--Aly Dumpty--went from functioning with undiagnosed Lyme disease, to becoming disabled by undiagnosed Lyme disease.

Humpty Dumpty was unable to be put back together. However, I, Aly Dumpty, refuse to accept the same fate for myself. For two years now, I have been instructing all the king's horses and all the king's men exactly which pieces go where. It's not an easy task putting me back together, but I reject the idea that it cannot be done. All the king's horses and all the king's men gave up on Humpty Dumpty. But they will not give up on me. Neither will I give up on me, even when it sometimes looks like some of the pieces may be missing or put on upside down and backward!

Aly Dumpty sat on a wall,
Aly Dumpty had a great fall;
And all the king's horses,
And all the king's men
Worked very hard and put
Aly Dumpty together again!
