Dear Fibromyalgia,
Remember me? I am the person who you have worked so hard to destroy. I am the person you infected. I am the person who lives with you every day and every night. You don't give me a moment's peace.
Because of you, I can no longer play with my kid(s) the way I want to. I can no longer clean the house without being exhausted and in pain. I no longer know what it feels like to feel GOOD.
I am on many medications to help me fight you. I take pain pills, sleeping pills, muscle relaxers, migraine pills, and many natural remedies. Some people tell me I remind them of a pharmacy because of all the medications.
You have taken my life and destroyed the me I used to know and love. You have made me tired. You have made me hurt. I suffer many side illnesses because of you. You made me lazy. You have ruined many of my relationships because no one understands. You have ruined my life.
You make my brain foggy. I can no longer think clearly. I forget what I am saying in the middle of a sentence. Sometimes I feel like I am developing Alzheimer's because of my constant forgetfulness. Some people laugh because I forget what I am talking about. And this is all YOUR fault!
Because of my birth, or an illness, or some kind of trauma, you have come into my life. I am constantly depressed because of you. Sometimes I can almost feel you laughing at me. Laughing in my ear because you have made my life a living heck.
But listen to me carefully. I will never stop fighting. I will never stop laughing at jokes or a funny movie. One of these days, there will be a cure, and I will be rid of you forever. Until that day comes, I will continue to fight. No matter how badly you make me feel, no matter how forgetful I am. I will never stop fighting. I can never stop fighting. Take this to heart, and know that no matter what you do to me, I will always fight back.
Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. Dr. Seuss
