Low Battery….

IMG_20170426_083755

Low Battery………I begin every day with a “low battery”…If I had a flashing “low battery” light it would always be on…No matter the time “recharging” in sleep or rest my light would still flash…This results in me constantly going into “energy debt”…Each day my “debt” becomes deeper…Try as I might to “recharge”  the energy I crave eludes me…

I rest…I sleep…I eat well…I manage expectations…I juggle daily tasks required…I try to minimise the daily levels of energy needed to merely exist…I keep things simple so as to save on my energy…I retreat when demands become too great…But still my “low battery” persists…Resting, sleeping & holidays do little to redress the fatigue…

This part of Fibro is like a shadow that is with me always…A haunting being that sucks from me my energy…With this “energy debt” comes the many symptoms that are symbiotic with the extreme fatigue…It is a constant nagging undercurrent that effects everything we do, or try to do…

But we are here…We have a future…It maybe a slower future than we had planned…But a future it is…Despite our battles & troubles we have hope & possibilities…We have words & mobility…We have choices & opportunities…We have will power & inner strength…We are here & we matter…NL x
