Sorry I havent been around of late had a really rough and dark time. Signed off the sick for 4 weeks changes in medication, depression caused by meds which made me question continuing my life, a very dark time(first time I've ever thought like that) not to go on to much about the experience, a snippet is more than enough but good news , the depression is no more in regards to those thoughts so on the recovery to plodding along.
Anyways, this wonderful insomnia that we all love inspired me to write my very first poem, it's not much of a great poem, has no title but I think a lot of you out there will be able to relate ...here we go (nervously going to press send lol) ..
I used to be such a free spirit , so active and fit, No worries , no stresses, not even a bit.
I'd sleep like a log , and wake up refreshed, Now I'm a walking zombie , and a couple of hours is usually my best.
My memory was fab , I'd have it all in a log, It's now becoming hard to have a conversation, from this so called "fog".
Out every night with my friend, loving life and having a laugh, Now I spend most of my time in a long hot bath.
That'll give me 20minutes to get into bed, Then I lean to my side and gobble every med.
I feel like I'm ancient and fading away, But for a cure for me and many I still always pray.
For all my fellow warriors , I feel your heartache and pain, I know if we keep our support together, we can beat this and remain sain.
I wish you all painless , sleep filled nights, Keep looking through that tunnel, I know well find the light.
Peace and love to you all. 💕
