My Poem to my G.P.
12 Replies
Duo - March 10

Pains in my neck and pains in my head
I'm so exhaused I take to my bed
Then pains in my chest, my legs are like lead
Ten minutes later I get out of my bed!
My bum now is numb, my shoulders they tingle
My sex life so sparse you'd think I was single.
My brain it is muffled and I struggle to think
I enter the kitchen and stare at the sink!
Then ten minutes later with lips stuck to teeth
I remember the kitchen's the place where I drink.
Can't bite or chew for this temporomandibular jont
No restaurants for me - there's really no point.
Pains in my toes, feel my fingers will burst
I really don't know from these which is worst.
Quite frightening however, my eyes go all blurred
and up to now I just WASN'T HEARD
But thanks to a Consultant now a diagnosis
It's Fibromyalgia and it stinks more than hallitosis.
It's not life-threatening - you could've fooled me
Thought I was joining ancestors on my family tree.

Sound familiar my Fibro friends ?
Take care - and try to keep smiling.

Great Poem!! We could all write a poem for the pain.It is so widespread it could go on forever. Also so many associated diagnosis you could write one just for that. Why don't you try that one too!!

Hi Duo, I was just wondering if you actually gave this poem to your gp? What was his/her reaction if you did?
Also came up with a few words for gerd ie; word, bird, turd (just kidding) lol ;)
Thanks again for sharing!
Wishing you a super day, Patty
