Poetry on Fibromyalgia

This poem

As well as this one

Are both about my experiences of having fibromyalgia, which is a chronic pain and fatigue illness/disability. I think it’s important to discuss what it’s like to have a chronic illness/disability that no one can see because it’s so easily ignored. People are struggling but because it’s not as obvious it’s so often discredited and invalidated. These poems are about those struggles.
