    Just wanted to say hello. I have been reading some of the posts and I love it when I find a new support group. I wrote this poem that I found a few days ago while going through my files and I wanted to share it.


    Life with FM.

    I deal with pain every day
    Not the pain that everyone can see
    It is like a hidden barrier
    That no one can cross but me.

    I try to be so strong
    Even though sometimes I cannot hide
    The bitterness that I feel
    Sometimes wishing that I would die.

    I am not suicidal
    For a strong Christian I aspire to be
    But sometimes the pain
    It gets the best of me.

    Fibromyalgia is a curse
    It makes life so hard
    Sometimes I feel just like
    It is ripping me apart.

    But I have obligations
    So I have to be strong
    And not let my family know
    Everything that is wrong.

    They know that I hurt
    But not to what extent.
    Everything that I endure
    I do it for them.

    I pray for a cure
    Or at least some relief
    Someday God will see fit for it to happen
    That is my belief.

    And if it happens not here
    Then one day in heaven it will be so.
    When I see Jesus there will be no more pain,
    This I know.

    This is just a burden
    That I must somehow endure
    Until He sees fit
    To send me a cure

    So I will keep going on
    And I won’t let it get the best of me
    Until the Ultimate Healer
    I have the joy to meet.

    Hi! I'm new too as of an hour or so ago (lost track of time!). Hope you're ready to make friends also because I stepped away to fix my lunch, came back to my puter and had LOTS of welcome e-mails! Loved your poem! I write also. Look forward to more from you!

    and what an inspiration your poem was to me. I too cannot wait until we meet our healer and have full joy all the time.

    I am pretty new here too for posting, I have been checking it out for a couple of years though. It has been a total blessing for me as I hope it will be for you.

    May God make his face to shine upon you this day.
