My Crappy Place

Despair sets in-
Darkness covers me

Hair releasing itself,
Resting awkwardly on
Shoulders and back.

Energy, usually just a
Faint memory.

Wait- memory…
What is that?!

Aching body imprisoning
Active thoughts;
Dreams unaccomplished- over;
Wishes set aside.

Weight goes up while
Body temp sinks lower…
Frozen digits.

Holding on with
Everything inside;
Still not measuring up
And anxious.

Forcing a smile on
My lips
While inwardly, the
Tears flow.

Heart sinks
Moods change.

Struggle to be positive
The negatives attack!

Tired, but ever
Pressing on.

    I want to tell you that you’ve reminded me how far I’ve come. Don’t dispair, I can tell you it does get better. SO many endless days it seemed to never show any change. But I remember forcing myself to shower, get dressed and do something, anything each day.
    setbacks? yes
    but spells started to shorten.
    I began to realize clues, and made personal adjustments.
    The mornings are still slow, but as the day moves forward I do too.
    I want you to believe
    that it will get easier
    I know. love, Linny
