... I want to knead your bones,
pulling and stretching muscle
and tendon like toffee, folding
them until they become brittle,
until they cramp, until they burst
open like powder in my hands...
this is what Fibromyalgia is like.
It is real, this pain; it is not a
made up excuse to avoid life -
although when it breaks, I do.
(c) 2008, Karla Dorman (5/9)

|Yes, fibromyalgia is real. This poem makes it even more real to me. I understand it better. Liz|

|This may not help your pain, but know how much we care for you and your health. Some doctor will finally understand and help you, as it is now becoming a more recognized "disease". Sad to say, doctors didn't previously take this serious because it effects women more than men!! Sheehs!!!
Blessings and Love ~~ Micke

|Karla, my friend Tina has Fybro too. I think she would appreciate the poem and I will tell her about it. As a cluster headache sufferer, I cannot say I understand your pain completely, but I sure do understand pain, and knowing my sympathy cannot help, all the empathy here must make you at least feel less alone in the misery, so I add my support. Keep on hangin in there!

|I'm sorry for your pain, Karla.

|I know what it is like,
extremely difficult to make people accept.
Most of the time, they tend to
"forget" when you look fine.

|I also share the pain of fibromyalgia. My rheumatologist is good though; she understands. I work at a hospital and most people that don't have constant pain do not know how to relate to this issue... I pray that you will be relieved of the pain soon.|
|Reviewed by Karen Palumbo
|Word is getting out and doctors are being to listen. Hopefully very soon there will be medication to help ease the awful pain. One would think they would have something already, such a shame. Godspeed to you and you are always in my prayers...
Be always safe,

|My Doctor just told me I DON'T have spinal stenosis which she had originally thought, thankfully...my sciatic nerve is however pinched off at L-5/s-1 and it does hurt sometimes a great deal but I cannot imagine the pain you must be going through...I am sorry for your suffering...Find Peace, Ed & Rufuz|

Maybe you ought to give some of those callous doctors a taste of what you feel: maybe then they wouldn't call you "crazy" or just looking for an excuse for pain relief. I am sorry you are going through this; fibromyalgia is real, and it is not some made up malady! You are ever in my prayers; here's hoping you'll find the relief you seek soon! Powerfully penned (although this one made me hurt! *OW*); brava, Karla!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your twink, Karen Lynn. :(

|Oh my Karla, I'm so sorry for I have many friends with this and I know how painful it is. Hang on my friend for the pain does subside and with all our prayers, you'll over come this tide. We love you, Love, Bonnie|

|Oh dear Karla I feel your pain and suffering as I have told my Doctor, I take it until I feel I just can't take anymore and feel that I am going to lose it. Do take care there are many out there that know Fibromyalgia is for real for no one choses to suffer this pain.
Newfie Hugs are on the way, Rose
