CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME
AWARENESS DAY – May 12th
Imagine a pain so severe that nothing is of comfort.
Un-able to sleep; as bones dive through your skin,
with every toss & turn.
Imagine waking up, not being able to walk.So tired; you’re un-able to speak, nor comprehend. Everything hurts.
Imagine no one believes!Relying on your own ability from one moment to the next, is no longer your option.
Imagine having the flu for twenty years.Enjoying life’s pleasures only once or twice a year; when you are able to fake it!
Imagine a life robbed; each day gets dimmer.Days turn to night. And, the fog like the Bay sets in – never clearing the way..
Imagine a world where there is no one around, but you.. in your bed with only your thoughts & memories; of who you once were.
Imagine your only joy in life is an occasional phone call,or the UPS man stopping by for a signature.
Imagine taking a shower, and feeling as though you
accomplished a new worlds record. Then, calling it a day.
Imagine a life filled with so much pain; tears just roll down your face. A life without comfort. A life filled with fear.
Imagine living in your head, because it’s the only place you can walk to… besides; you’ll never get lost on your way back.
Imagine watching the world pass by, without so much as a glance…Youth turns it’s back; while life passes in the night.
Imagine having to ignore all of this,so you don’t concern the only onesthat are still left to care. God Bless you!
Imagine being 35,and still “looking good” so you are told,but that doesn’t change a thing…imagine being me!
