My Poem for ME Awareness

I wrote this poem in  2001 
I have had ME since 1995
I still have ME in 2011
And I am still waiting for life to begin

Old Before Time

32 (now 42) years of age
Prime of life
For some that is
Me I am unfortunate
Have a debilitating illness
For which there's no cure
Not terminal
But may as well be
Life on hold
Awaiting a re-birth
To a zestful existence
The former self
Never stopped to rest
Now all I do is…rest
Sympathise with the elderly
Understand their plight
Feel their limitations
But I could wait for that
When it is my time
But for now
I have a lot of living to do

Blood test results

Got my results for the blood tests and found they are all normal, I am not diabetic, I do not have low iron, I do not have thyroid problems, I do not have coeliac disease, so I am relieved and to celebrate I had 6 pieces of chocolate last night:) I still need to see the figures though as I don't take their word for it as I know you can be borderline and they say you are normal especially when it comes to thyroid but it's good to rule other stuff out from time to time as if it's something you can do something about it's better than ME.
