on the fibromyalgia forum charlii wrote a blog that quite touched me. I think it applies to us here too.it starts
"Having fibro and surviving day to day is like trying to thread beads on a necklace with no knot in the end.... "
it set my mind off and inspired this poem.
I'm tying a knot for charlii
and all my virtual friends.
I want to keep their beads on safe,
by joining up the ends.
I'd add the beads of sleeping well,
of rest and comfort too.
I'd leave spaces for those you want to add,
I'll leave it up to you.
sunshine beads for rainy days,
& ones to make you smile,
fluffy beads & flowers too,
[this could take a while!]
if they fall, we'll all help pick them up,
with support, understanding, care
know if you ask for it, you're not alone
help is always there.
