Have you written a poem about how this disease makes you feel? Here is just a part of Valda's:
The loneliness of this disease
just claws within my soul
and makes my pain so much to bear --
a mean and nasty foe.
But the wisdom of those simple words
console me through tough times
and soar within my soul like birds
with love and joy divine!

And part of the poem that inspired this post:
Isn’t it strange, how nature makes your forget,
That terrible pain you have and continually get.
It comes in waves when you least expect it,
And you think, please stop now and give me a rest for a bit.
