I came across this poem in a Facebook Fibromyalgia Support Group, and wanted to share with you as it is very well written, and well said.
This illness sucks the living daylights out of who it touches, and it is NO FUN. Living with constant all over severe body pain, crippling fatigue, memory loss, inability to form whole sentences, depression, anxiety, insomnia, just to name a few, SUCKS! Not being able to work full time, play the sports and do the activities I want to do, spend time with family and friends, clean, cook, do regular errands, is a huge pain in the butt. Having to “count our spoons” every morning just to decide what can and cannot be done that day, SUCKS!
However, as I’ve mentioned before, yes this illness sucks, BUT I think I was meant to suffer so that I could then help heal others. My mission in this lifetime is to help others (and myself) get their bodies to a healing state. My dream is to figure out all the intricacies of this illness, and help heal each fibro sufferers, one at a time. After I graduate and I am officially a registered nutritionist (in October), I am hoping to touch as many lives as possible. I plan to devote the rest of my life to helping others heal from hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, insomnia, and memory loss, to name a few.
If you (or someone you know) is looking for a nutritionist in the fall, feel free to send me a note!
We will beat this, one person at a time, and will no longer be misunderstood 🙂
