    A poem that I wrote today
    floridapoolbum posted:

    It's been difficult lately,
    as the battle lines have been drawn.
    Even getting out of bed is a struggle,
    as the daily fight has already begun.
    There is no energy to be cheerful,
    my body aches, desire has been drained.
    The fight is even more of a struggle
    without ammunition, how can I possibly win?

    What a beautiful poem, floridapoolbum. So much emotion and honesty in your words. I wish I could give you a hug through the screen. Unfortunately, I can't....but I can tell you that we are here for you ((hugs)).

    Do you have someone that you can talk to about this?
