I'm glad I decided to investigate this poem. Debra, you really describe the suffering, both physically and psychologically - not only do our bodies "betray" us, but the people in our lives emotionally disconnect from us causing us even more pain. It seems like everything I do sets me back for a day or two or three or four its the uncertainty that I deplore. I have remissions where it troubles me less, but this last flareup has me in distress. It goes on and on without a break forcing a life in a body of ACHE. Thank you all for understanding FMS

Thank you, Debra, for expressing so eloquently what it is like to live with this demon we call fibro. It is obvious fibro has not impacted your creative genius. The demon can wreck havoc with the body, but it can also clarify the mind.
Very serendipitous! I have fibro, RA & herniated/ruptured discs in neck & low back. I look fine, but I know what you mean when it comes to other people looking at you like you want sympathy or pity. I just want my old life back. I want to work, I want to clean house, I want to do dishes, I want to fold laundry, I want to enjoy my 3 little granddaughters, I'm 53 yrs old I'm too young for an old body like this.......
