    and it touched me as I hope it will for someone else. This young lady has FM, CFS,HMS, and ME. So she has been on a roller coaster from the age of 18 and she is now 23 and her younger sister started showing signs of some of these things at the age of 14 and is now 20.

    She has many other poems that she has written on this subject. If you want to read them here is her website:

    "TRYING" By Dayna

    Trying to fight not to let it win,
    Trying not to cry just be happy and grin.
    Trying to block out the loss and the pain,
    This I try to do time again and again.


    Trying to be positive is a very big start,
    Trying tablets and treatments is also a part.
    Trying to be brave and hopeful is the main,
    This I try to do time again and again.


    Trying and determined lots of new things,
    Trying to laugh at whatever fate brings.
    Trying not to give up and keep myself sane,
    This I try to do time again and again.


    Trying to live the best life I can,
    Trying to adapt and always to plan.
    Trying to accept whatever the strain.
    This I try to do time again and again.

    I hope that everyone has a good day today!
