But this Fibromyalgia Monster has taken over my life
This thorn in my flesh Lord, How can I explain?
I get up every morning though my body is in pain
Itís like a Horrible Flu that just wonít go away
You pray for it to leave you but itís with you everyday
The energyís been sucked out, weakness never goes
Nerves feel inflamed from my head down to my toes
Arms burn like fire and what a sinus headache
I feel like Iím 100 but you say I look athletic
Now sensitive to medicines, chemicals and mold
Legs numb and tingling and Why do I feel cold?
Get worse from the heat till about September
My brain is in a Fog, and thereís words I canít remember
Spasms in my back, my breathing isnít right
My bed feels like nails as I lye awake at night
My muscles scream in agony. Oh my gosh donít touch!
I take my herbs and medicines but they donít help too much
My immune systems weakened, it seems on overdrive
My vision wonít stay focused and I often stay inside
Lights are too bright, noises are too loud
Unfortunately Iíll get sick again standing in this crowd
Some doctors say ďItís all in your headĒ or ďOh, Youíre just depressedĒ
ďYour fine, just take these crazy pills and get a little restĒ
Yes I get down sometimes, upset and so would you
If a truck had just ran over you youíd feel the same way too
The attack of my brain is from infection Iíll bet
This is a neuro immune disease but some donít know it yet
Trying to do my best as a mother and a wife
But this Fibromyalgia Monster has taken over my life.
