Were you run over by a truck?
Were you run over by a car?
Did someone pull you through a hole?
By your toes onto your nose?
 
Were you dragged behind a train?
Was it a train named Adelaide?
Was it a train that caused your pain?
 
Did someone yank you by the hair?
Chase you with bees; stomp on your knees?
Did an elephant stop by and take a rest upon your thighs?
What you say?  Twas none of these?
Please explain, I beg you please?

I like it a lot. You should add more. Maybe do a little book. Have fun with being creative about fibro. It helps keep you positive. I loved this.
'Cause when push comes to shove
you taste what you're made of.
You might bend til you break
'cause it's all you can take.
On your knees you look up
decide you've had enough.
You get mad.
You get strong.
Wipe your hands
shake it off.
Then you stand.

This is too fun of a topic to pass up.  Been a bit of a tough week so this is the best i can do.
 
Round and round the visits go,
surely one doctor must really know -
symptoms aplenty oh what to do?
problems are many, cures are so few.
 
could this disease be hertzintheknees
or maybe acute falloverwithease?
A bout of the dread whatelsecanbesaid,
or the "go away" diagnosis of itsallinyourhead?
 
The only thing certain is tomorrow is uncertain at best,
so take solace in small things and get plenty of rest.
As the Whos down in Whoville say in their rhyme:
"We can't control the hand we've been dealt,
we can't control the way that we've felt.
All we can do to for an outlook sublime
is think positive thoughts and take one day at a time."

Very good Rich!!!
 
Here is some more:
 

It’s a thing called fibromyalgia

Foul pool algae?  Find my algebra?

No.  I said it’s fibromyalgia.

 

Fibromyalgia? no that’s not real.

It’s not real.  It makes no sense.

You were chomped by a crocodile.

A crocodile came to your house

A crocodile came with a mouse.

They brought their hats and bright blue pants

And brought along some fire ants.

 

They dined upon your back and knees

Said pass the pepper, if you please.

I know it all.  You can’t fool me.

It was a crocodile and a mouse

And a thousand fire ants

Yes. That makes sense.

Just ask aunt Alga.

Because you can’t have fibromyalgia.

I talked to a quack
It hurts my back

My feet are a mess
I must confess

Many times I cry
I don't know why

Can you tell me why?
I want to cry

I hurt all over
then I discover

It's fibromyalgia
that's what they tell ya.

All in my head?
Why am I in bed?
So the doctor said,
There's a better life to be led,
Just take my meds.
They make me feel like lead.
"You're just stubborn", he said,
So I fall on my knees,
Someone believe me please.
Cause I can't handle this disease.
You need coping skills, Jeeze,
But I lived under a tree,
You think I did so with ease?

Another day of who knows what.
Can I trust it to luck?
Attribute the pain to Puck,
The little elf, up to mischief,
With conscious intent.
My feelings are bent
Twisted in knots,
The pain so intense
and robbing my peace.
No sleep ever comes,
Without the drugs to make me numb.
So I feel dumb
And misunderstood,
Even Family doubts,
My sincerity, Humbug.

Can I catch a break,
What a chance I take,
Leaving it all to fate.
Where once I stood tall,
Mastered it all,
Now I feel weak,
Can't think.
Have lost so much,
I feel it's a test.
How far can she go,
Oh, so slow.
One thing at a time.
This life of mine.

~An Ode to all the Dr.'s Who Have Ignored Us, Poo-Paa'd Us, Thrown Pills at Us, Overcharged Us, and Just Generally Frustrated the !%#@ Out of Us~

~or-A Fibro-Mite Finally Loses It, Dr. Seuss Style~

Dr. Man....
….Dr. Man



That Dr. Man
That Dr. Man
I do not like that Dr. Man!

Do you like...your healthcare plan?

I do not like it, Dr. Man
I do not like my healthcare plan.

Do you like being poked
Here or there?

I do not like it here or there
I do not like it anywhere!
I do not like my healthcare plan
I do not like it, Dr. Man

Would you like another test?
If I said “just get more rest”?

I would not like another test!
I do not need “just more rest”!
I don't like pokes here or there
I do not like them anywhere!
I do not like my healthcare plan
I do not like it, Dr. Man.

Would you like another pill?
How bout another outrageous bill?

Not a pill
Not a bill
Not a test
Not more rest
I don't like pokes here or there
I do not like them anywhere!
I do not like my healthcare plan
I do not like it, Dr. Man.

Maybe you just need more exercise?
Maybe your problem is the size of your thighs?

I do not need more exercise!
It isn't all my thighs' size!
I would not like another test!
I do not need “just more rest”!
I don't like pokes here or there
I do not like them anywhere!
I do not like my healthcare plan
I do not like it, Dr. Man.

What if I just sigh and roll my eyes?
What if I just ignore your cries?

I hate it when you roll your eyes!
I hate when you ignore my cries!
I do not need more exercise!
It isn't all my thighs' size!
I would not like another test!
I do not need “just more rest”!
I don't like pokes here or there
I do not like them anywhere!
I do not like my healthcare plan
I do not like it, Dr. Man.

What if I say “It's all in your head?”
What if I say “Just go to bed?”

It is not all in my head!
I feel no better when I'm in bed!
I hate it when you roll your eyes!
I hate when you ignore my cries!
I do not need more exercise!
It isn't all my thighs' size!
I would not like another test!
I do not need “just more rest”!
I don't like pokes here or there
I do not like them anywhere!
I do not like my healthcare plan
I do not like it, Dr. Man.

Well I just think you are depressed.
I just think you're a a bit too stressed.

Well of COURSE I am depressed!
And of COURSE I'm a bit too stressed!
Because YOU just say it's in my head!
And YOU just say go to bed!
You sit there and roll your eyes!
You pay no mind when I cry!
You tell me get more exercise!
You try to blame it on my thighs!
You give me stupid test after test!
You tell me to just get more rest!
You have poked me here and there
You have poked me everywhere!!!
So no-I do not like my healthcare plan!
I do not like it Dr. Man!
I would just love to see
Just one day when you were me
And could finally understand
That this was never my life's plan!
I ache and burn and can not sleep
No matter how much I try to count sheep!
I am in pain, you stupid bird brain!
And your ignorance is totally lame!!
Just because you have a white coat
Doesn't mean you get to gloat!
You haven't helped me with this all
You haven't helped me much at all!
You blow me off, then charge me money
For telling me nothing-this isn't funny!
So I tell you what you can do
I'll tell you what, and then we're through!
You can take your “educated mind”
and shove it where the sun don't shine!
And while your at it, take my “healthcare plan”
And shove that too, Dr. Man!!
love and hugs

Dr. Seuss before ________ (insert name of your favourite pain med!)
 
What's that you say?
Shopping trip today?
 
I cannot do it near or far.
I cannot do it in a car.
 
I cannot do it in the rain.
I cannot do it on the train.
 
I cannot do it in the mall.
I cannot do it, not at all.
 
I will not go shop today.
I will not go, no way!

Dr. Seuss after __________ (insert name of favourite pain med.)
 
We took our meds.
We left our beds.
 
To the mall by city bus!
To the store with no fuss!
 
We can shop here and there.
We can shop anywhere.
 
Shiny round things,
Are they called "rings"?
 
Shoes and clothes, there's lots to buy!
We know the cashier thinks we're high.
 
Please, oh please, Doctor Man,
Is this covered in my healthcare plan?
 
~ dedicated to my Mum who has an autoimmune disease as well and has always been a source of hilarity, whether under the influence of pain meds or not!

There's so many illness out in this world
and some sound pretty absurd.
Fibromyalgia is certainly no joke.
So be careful please, if you decide to poke.
 
It's not all in my head,
that's my my great doctor said.
It's Fibromyalgia, it's hard to pronounce,
and yes, I know it hurts you to bounce.
 
It hurts to stand, it hurts to sit.
Sometimes it even hurts to spit.
It hurts to laugh, it hurts to cry.
But at least I have a reason why.
 
 
'Cause when push comes to shove
you taste what you're made of.
You might bend til you break
'cause it's all you can take.
On your knees you look up
decide you've had enough.
You get mad.
You get strong.
Wipe your hands
shake it off.
Then you stand.
