I wake up in the morning

and I don't go to work

But I get a gold star

if I make it to the loo

Just add somef lines each and see where it goes; Just some fun.

      I might be being insane because it's the middle of the night and worry's keeping me awake (family stuff), but I wonder if there's a band who'd rally to our cause and put our song out there; proceeds to ME research?

      We need publicity and to shout about this; we've been ignored for far too long. What do you think?

      ME may sound pretty, but we can assure you it ain't

      A life without pain would be so quaint

      Waking every morning wondering what today will bring

      Just another day of dealing with this thing

      When will it stop, nobody will ever know

      Looking to the future just fills me with woe

      All the time dealing with fear and anxiety

      I long for the day I think with sobriety

      How long will I have to go through this disease

      That keeps on bringing me to my knees

      I live in hope that one day this will pass

      Just like it does with my IBS gas

      My little addition to the song, although mine sounds more like a nursery rhyme!

      That's amazing Paul, thank you. I so relate, especially to the 'when will it stop...' and 'Looking to the future...' lines. I think we must have the stamina of gladiators to cope with it! cool

      I wake up in the morning

      but there's not much I can do

      I should get a gold medal

      for making it to the loo

      My bed is my best friend

      the pain will never end

      I go to bed at night

      but it turns into a fight

      I often sit alone and think of life before ME

      All the things I wanted to do all the places I wanted to see

      I try to think positively and hold on to hope

      But as the months turn to years it becomes harder to cope

      Feeling so lonely laying awake at night

      Becoming defiant and refusing to give up this fight

      Hoping one day this thing may go as fast as it came

      And I can then live my life once again x

      Thankyou

      And we all have each other on here for times when it feels as though nobody else understands.

      The headfog will it ever go away

      The having to pace and rest everyday.

      The missunderstanding of friends 

      and family this will never end.(s)

      It is hard to keep going and be positive

      If only I hadn't suffered for 33 years,if if

      Sorry not very good, but I feel so strongly that I had to write something

      I think it's excellent Alision because you describe it so well for all of us! 33 years! I thought 10 years was bad enough. You must be one strong lady! Big respect.

      I've stopped putting the verses together because it's getting pretty long! But keep them coming everybody; they're amazing. razz

      I could do some editing eventually, choose some of the lines for a chorus and we could have a really great ME song!

      Does anyone know how to go about getting the song out there, finding a band, proceeds for ME research?
