Skin Tight: A poem from Harmony via @Vocal_Creators #poetry #chronicpain #chronicillness #Depression and a #Health Update

Skin Tight

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!Β 

You can find my entry below. Vocal estimates this as a 1-minute read.

Health Update:

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 πŸ’•πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—

I’d love to know what you think! And I would be delighted if you could read and heart.Β To heart and/or comment, you’ll need to sign in to Vocal, which is free to do.

Thanks for all your support! Hugs πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ™‚Β

  1. I’m so sorry, Harmony. I’m headed to Vocal to check out your poem, but am sending hugs your way in the interim. Wishing you peace and healing in the days ahead.

  2. Hi Harmony, I am well aware of the limitations of doctors. We recently saw a rheumatologist for Michael and he was not at all encouraging about being able to help him. Sigh! The poem is excellent and I left you a comment there.

    • I’m so sorry, Robbie! It’s next to useless even seeing these consultants when it’s this kind of attitude. Sigh. Thanks so much for your comment. Hugs and love to you all πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ™‚

  3. Your poem shares your deep frustration, Harmony. I could feel it in every line. I hope you find your answers and a way to live comfortably in your skin. <3 <3
