I hide my pain

Mar 05, 2017 5:22 AM

i hide my pain in the ribbons of the day... how many fays go by when i say im fine a lie i hide so sympathy is avoided as is pity like a turtle hiding in her shell i appear strong though inside im slow sensitive and soft...

Taxcakez, that was a very beautiful poem and so very true for most all of us here, because of the pity or family member's and Friends,who don't understand us or just don't care so they stop talking to us. Very well said!

Wow how very true and like I said on the other post I can feel the pain from your picture from both the eye and the ribbons, I hope drawing and writing like this helps get it out xx

I've tried hiding the pain and it's actually cost to me jobs because my pain from the fibro overrides my system and causes mistakes so I have to deal with it. I can't stand the pity and the lose weight routine. It's not by choice that we suffer we can and always do manage suck it up and running
