Fab fibro poem…
By Hannah Hill
As a Fibromyalgia sufferer I do not want your sympathy; I just want you to understand who I am because I may forget.
Yesterday I may have been limping, today I may be skipping, and tomorrow I may be having a sofa day.
Yesterday I may have been on top of the world, today I may want to stay indoors; tomorrow I may not be able to get out of bed.
Although my pain is all over, yesterday my leg may have been hurting more than my arm, today it’s my head; tomorrow it may be my back.
Yesterday I was able to make a three course meal; today it’s a frozen meal, tomorrow its Jam and bread.
Yesterday I climbed a mountain, today I may manage a mile, and tomorrow I may manage a smile.
Yesterday I may have been engaging in great conversation, today I may forget my words, tomorrow I may have forgotten we spoke.
It’s not easy living with Fibromyalgia, even harder when others do not understand you!!
