Fibromyalgia Poems

Extra Illness

To me normality is being ill

My body always feels like it’s coming down with the flu

The full body aches

And feeling constantly drained

When I do get a cold

Everything I normally experience is heightened

It makes my symptoms worse

And I’m even more drained

I can’t carry on like others

I can’t ignore it and let it work through my system

I have to listen to my body

Help it in any way I can

My body fights itself

Even at the best of times

Right now it’s at war

Against a new enemy
