Fibromyalgia Poems

Miss the person I used to be

I miss ths person I used to be

The freedom I had before

Before this condition took over

Before I was forced to change

I used to be so carefree

Able to have a social life

Free to do what I wanted

Not held back by anything

I’ve had to change a lot

Develop a new perspective

Appreciate the smaller things

But I still mourn my life before

I cannot do as much

And can’t be the person I want

I’ve lowered my expectations

Now getting up is an achievement

I’m trying to see the funny side

But sometimes it’s really hard

I just want to go back in time

And be the person I used to be
