Elbows bent, can't straighten them,
hands are throbbing, feel the pain.
Knees are stiff and ankles ache,
hips won't move, trapped nerves again!
RA is gnawing through my joints
the meds they gave me just don't touch.
It feels like someone's driving nails
and every movement hurts so much.
If only I could rant and rave
but energy - I have none left.
My Sjogren's makes my mouth so dry
and dry eyes ache, they need to rest.
