Fibromyalgia doesn’t just consist of one type of pain
It can be anything from burning to stabbing to tingling or anything inbetween
It could be a mixture of all of the above.
This pain can form in any part of the body at any time.
From the knees to the feet, the back or my shoulders
I may or may not do something that causes it
It’s like my body is rolling dice to decide where will hurt next and for how long
I can no longer prepare for a lot of things as I just don’t know how much pain I will be in
I have tried so many things to help but nothing gets rid of it. There is no way to stop the pain.
I try painkillers, muscle relaxers, tai chi, walking, resting, drinking water, vitamins
I try to avoid things that may cause me more pain
Some of it helps to a certain degree, but it only eases it slightly
I am still in agonising pain even when I don’t show it
I just try to ignore it as if I don’t, I won’t be able to do anything
I try to act as normal as I can, despite the fact my pain is taking over my life
It controls and commands me but I fight it
When you see my pain, please know it is because I just cannot hide it that moment, that hour, that day
The pain has beaten me this time but I will get my revenge
I always find a way to carry on and I always will.
