Fibromyalgia makes me feel old before my time
Even others comment that I am like a 90 year old
Thanks to the stiffness, the pain and the fatigue
Every time someone mentions it, it only worries me more
Its not a nice thought to know how much I’m already suffering
How will I be when I am older if my body is already old?
I struggle to climb the stairs more than my grandma
I can’t sit on the floor as there is no way I’m getting back up
I have the talent to hurt myself from a sneeze or a cough
My brain functions as though I’m getting senile
Forgetting absolutely everything and getting things mixed up
The lack of energy that makes even the simplest task seem impossible
Its hard to think of the future when I already feel old
How will I cope when I’m more weaker and frailer?
I’m already in agony, how much worse can it get?
I just try to focus on myself a day at a time
On how to get through each day as best as I can
And I continue to hope for a way to feel better
