I wrote this poem in 2011 during a flare-up of my Fibromyalgia. Please note that the symptoms of Fibromyalgia can vary from person to person, and from day-to-day.
Knots, burning, tingling, pain,
pressure, anxiety, loss of my brain.
Fatigue, fuzziness, uncertainty, shame,
anger, resentment, indecision, blame.
Out of control, sad and confused,
reluctant, unabated, no way to choose.
A life of uncertainty, filled with doubt
Like being trapped in a well unable to climb out!
