The pain gets so unbearable My body refusing to do any more The diseases ravaging me from the inside only to hear friends and family say But You Look Fine Must I look frail and decrepit confined and hooked up to machines Before everyone will be able to understand what the stroke and diseases are doing to me. Even the doctors look at me and say But You Look Fine My mind tries so hard to push my body past its limit each and every minute of every day. Knowing this will cost me days possibly weeks of extra pain. I am trying my hardest to stay a part of this life as hard as it is to bear. The invisible illnesses are really cruel and plays mean tricks on the mind. If they could see and feel what's going on inside me, they would never say those words again, But You Look Fine

At the End of the Day

Dear Lisa, by chance I found your writes. I am very pleased to discover your write "But You Look Fine."
It is so true what you are saying and believe me, that I know what you mean. It happened to me very often that just when I suffered the most everyone gave me a compliment, "Your cheeks are flush." But no one knew how I was feeling. One day I asked my wife how I look, she told me the same thing as my colleagues told me. Until I found a good remedy, which is, when I encounter someone I just smile. You will feel very good. I hope you will find the power of the smile. Love Emile

this is terrible...why do people lie to their loved ones
over something so sensitive as this? It's shameful!!
I think too, that maybe they are afraid. This is an
emotional write. Thank you for sharing these truths
within the circumference of perspectives.

Love's Bounty & Blessings
