Thank-you fibro

Thank-you fibro for choosing me,

Thank-you for making me so poorly

Thanks for the pain I suffer each day

Thanks for migraines that won't go away

Thanks for helping me to fall on the floor

Thanks for making everything such a chore

Thanks for making me drop things all the time

Thanks for the struggle to make this rhyme

Thanks for the forgetting where I am

Thanks for never making me feel glam

Thanks for the burning, the rashes too

Thanks for the emotions, which keep making me blue

Thanks for the meds, I take each day

Thank-you fibro for making me this way

Thank-you for making every day such a pain

Thank-you fibro once again

Thank-you for the anxiety & the depression

Thanks for making me leave my profession

Thanks for changing my whole lifestyle

What I'd give to not have fibro just for a while.

Thank-you for giving me the fatigue

I hope one day we may all be freed

But for now Christmas is coming & my wish for you all,

Is a pain free day, however big or small.

Hello Tinkerjack. It seems along time since we last spoke. :) We must have kept missing each other.

I love the poem and in case we still keep missing each other.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS. xx

Hi Mary Rose, yes it has been a while, I have been pretty bad lately & not had the strength to do much at all. Glad you like the poem. We should catch up soon.

Just in case though have a great Christmas. Xx
