Skin Tight: A poem from Harmony via @Vocal_Creators #poetry #chronicpain #chronicillness #Depression and a #Health Update
Hi everyone. I’ve written a poem on Vocal, free verse, which is on the heavy side today and reflects constant pain and other issues … and further down, you’ll see an update from yours truly!
You can find my entry below. Vocal estimates this as a 1-minute read.
Thank you all for your constant support and well wishes.
So many of you hope someone will find something that helps my condition soon. Unfortunately, and outrageously, I’m on my own with this diagnosis.
I’m trying everything I can, but I’m not there yet as regards an answer or ‘magic bullet’. So, once again, apologies for being so absent. I’m having to make a lot of changes at the moment.
Hopefully, soon, I’ll be able to find some sort of rhythm, but right now, it’s a take each minute at a time and see, as my energy can drop off a cliff without notice, and the pain can ramp up within a split second, again without notice. Pain is constant–it’s just the degree that changes.
Sometimes, I’m way down (as this poem shows), but most of the time I bounce up quickly and am able to be my usual happy self. Hugs and love to you all 💕😊🤗
I’d love to know what you think! And I would be delighted if you could read and heart. To heart and/or comment, you’ll need to sign in to Vocal, which is free to do.
Thanks for all your support! Hugs 🤗💕🙂
