My Fibromyalgia's acting up BIG time. Keep me in your prayers--

I hope your July 4th holiday is safe, pain free, and fun. :-)


Never ending, these fireworks of pain
The kind that explode again and again
O, what I'd give to gain independence
From Fibromyalgia's pain, so immense

Detonating from my neck to my feet
The kind of pain that repeats and repeats
Sparklers going off in front of my eyes
Adding to color I see in the skies

An eagle tears muscles with wicked claws
The kind that intensifies, there's no pause
Wish I could amputate body from head
No...I have to live with the pain, instead

The finale draws near, but not the end
The kind where many fireworks will blend
They congeal until I'm burning inside
I burst into flame but I have not died

Never ending, these fireworks of pain
The kind that explode again and again
O, what I'd give to gain independence
From Fibromyalgia's pain, so intense

Hi karla. I can understand this from two points of view. Mt wife suffers greatly from "Fibro", and I have chronic pain from degenerative osteo arthritis, which helps me to help Juanita.
You have captured the intensity, and the fears, that come with Fibro extremely well in this work. You write from the heart.

I can relate. I had a big FM flare up from over doing, last night and today. We just have to stay positive and take it easier, that somewhat helps to ease the. My prayers are with you.
