The pain is far greater than the meds.
The meds give me the worst side effects
All together I’m slowing unravelling
Can it get any worse?
I lie in what was once my bed
It’s now become a torturers rack
I toss and turn to no avail
Sleep, sleep, what is that?
I’ll take a pill to let me rest
It zonks me out, into a zone
I’m a zombie and I don’t care,
Can I wake up feeling any worse?
I am now at my wits end
Desperation becomes my default
I grab at anything in the hope,
Can it possibly get any worse?
A friend is currently dealing with chronic pain and suffering terribly through it.
I wrote the above in response to the last email I received.
