Pills, pills, pills, More hefty health bills, Where are life's joys and thrills, I just have to climb endless hills,
Pain radiates throughout me, Pain you can't see, Killing me, Hoping to someday be free,
When will that be, Judge me as crazy feel free, For one day just be me, Then you will understand me,
Another day, To keep the pain at bay, It will be better you say, I pray for that day,
I pray for sleep, The dreams I keep, My alarm it does bleep, On the floor I roll in a heap,
Feeling weak, The day looks bleak, Tears from my eyes do leak, Into darkness you sneak,
Different symptoms all the time, Bloody Lyme, When did I commit such a crime? To get given such a huge slice of lime?
My body may hold, A story which should be told, On my symptoms you may not be sold, To keel over I want to fold,
Wanting to live life, Instead of being battered by a knife, My life? What life?
My mind has goals and dreams, My body wants out it seems, The sun beams, Another day wasted in bed it seems,
Tired after an hour, I can't face being stood up in the shower, Waiting for the day to blossom into a flower, Over those who judged I would tower,
The moments I miss, Goodbye I will kiss, Praying for bliss, My journey don't you dismiss,
See me smile, talk, laugh be the girl you know, My pain I will try not to show, My cover I don't wish to blow, Burning through my body does flow,
Hungry but sick, When will everything click, That bloody tick, Where did time go - it's gone in a tick,
Rest, That's best, Living in the present, Praying for an ascent,
Doctors, hospitals and white walls, My heads full of bowling balls, My body the pins they hope will fall, Here I am despite it all,
My fight you may think it's real, My fate Lyme may seal, Don't judge how I feel, The short straw was drawn in this deal,
Place down my cards, My suffering you can disregard, My heart I will guard, My heart scattered into shards,
My friend, We fight for the darkness to end, A hand to lend, My soul I defend,
See my eyes, For hours there have been cries, Endless tries, The truth held in my eyes,
I will keep on,
The pain may not be gone,
I will rise to number one,
Always fighting full on!
Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN.
Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
