Muscles powerless and drained of any charge –
You’ve been tired; but this is on another level.
Any movement, or thought, is a struggle.
Lying in the dark; sensitive to light and sound;
Guilt for not being present in the life I once had.
Illness, illness, illness… I’ve been knocked down hard by a virus I may never recover from!
Chronic Fatigue? This is so much more.
Can’t think straight
Even words have left me
Pain is a constant
Holding on each day
Alone and unsupported
Lost, trapped, deserted
Optimism is hard; but absolutely necessary
My old life has vanished; disappeared in an instant
Yet this theft is not investigated or even acknowledged
Exercise is recommended but it actually does great harm
Lack of understanding and empathy undermines my suffering
I want to get better. It’s
Time to be listened to
I need answers; for the millions who are missing.
