Chronic illness


What is like to be diagnosed with illness

I wonder if my dreams will come true
If I’ll be able to do what I want to do
Will my weakness affect others too?

Will I want to lie and say I’m fine
When I’m really experiencing pain inside
Will I wait until I’m alone to cry ?

Is there a treatment? , or even a cure
Which one is best for me ? I’m rather unsure
How will I work, if I’m constantly sore ?

Will my faith be tested ?
Will my body be rested ?
Is this all a test? Or maybe a lesson?

I have a million questions, can’t you see?
that this is all so new to me.
But I want to be strong for family!

What do I do when I can’t sleep?
And my eyes feel heavy and deep
And my body is anxious yet weak ?

I often pray.
To be healed some day
But I don’t always know what to say.

At times I feel afraid
But too afraid to admit I am in pain
For fear that I’ll ruin someone else’s day

Some days are great
Other days I have little faith
My trust in God is the only way

Will I be on medication forever?
How soon will my condition get better?
Am I overdramatizing the matter ?

I have a million questions, can’t you see?
That this is all so new to me
But I need to be strong for my family!
