"Due To M.E I Often Say I Feel As Rough As A Rhinos Arse...Like I'm Some Kind Of Rhino Arse Expert?"

One Stupid Dot

Me & M.E, Same Letters Separated By A Dot
One’s Who I Am, One’s What I’ve Got
One’s Who I Used To Be, Ones What I’m Not
Oh I’m Still Me, There’s Just A Dot In-Between
But It’s A Dot That Can Stop You From Living A Dream
It’s A Dot That Separates The M From The E
And While It’s Sat There It’s Hard To Be Me
The Me That I Was In Healthier Days
Before The Dot Came Forcing The Parting Of Ways
I’m Nothing As M And Empty As E
But Side By Side Again I Could Be Me
That Dot Has Got A Lot To Explain
How Can Something So Small Cause So Much Pain
So Much Devastation, Be Endlessly Cruel
It’s Just One Stupid Dot After All?
Why Does It Have To Be Stuck In The Middle
Causing Complex Symptoms That Read Like A Riddle?
I Have To Believe That Just As It Came
That Dot Will Mysteriously Vanish Again
Every Night Before Sleeping I Hope And I Pray
That I’ll Wake Up As Me Without A Dot In The  Way.

M.E Awareness & Free Downloads

Sadly not everyone wakes up, many pass from secondary problems caused by M.E, while others like Amberlin Wu battle weary from trying to fight the illness & the prejudice, end up taking their own lives. She had sadly but beautifully written about her M.E journey  in "The Box Story"  a story that resonated with me and so I wanted to share it with you in her memory.
