Today we share a poem from Kat Fankhauser who is from Auckland, New Zealand.
Many of us face Goliaths in our lives . . .
My giant is chronic pain and chronic fatigue, sleepless nights, unless I swallow oodles of medication with their side-effects, waking in the morning unrefreshed and groggy.
Relentless pain, being treated like a hypochondriac, when I complain my legs are aching, labelled lazy or slothful because my fatigued and weakened muscles stop me from doing basic household chores.
Living with an irritable bowel, causing unpleasant smells, not being able to have a good poo, or having stomach pains because something I ate
upset my digestion..
Thank you Kat..
Let us begin to understand mental illness.
