Fibromyalgia - Poem by Donna Saphier

My body is full of aches and pains
And I can hardly walk
But when I try to say I'm ill
No-one lets me talk

I ache so bad, I cannot move
The pain it hurts me badly
But no-one understands I'm sure
It goes unnoticed, sadly

Fibromyalgia hurts me so
Sometimes I don't like living
My Doctor prescribes nothing
And is doubtful into giving

People just don't understand
This illness I'm enduring
Because they cannot see it
When I speak they think I'm boring

I'm really hurting most of the time
And I am clearly in pain
But Fibromyalgia doesn't stop
Me from going in-sane

I feel alone like no-one cares
And I'm always depending
This Fibromyalgia is such a disease
I'm afraid it's never ending

I still plod on as best I can
Fighting through the pain
Since I am riddled with this disease
Life will never be the same.
