Fibromyalgia warrior, Arushi Lohiya has been suffering from Fibromyalgia since 2012. Arushi has added her face to Faces & Stories of Fibromyalgia and would like to share her poem about Fibromyalgia with us. I am so grateful that Arushi shared this, as each story told raises awareness and helps fellow sufferers.

A slave of my own body,
Don’t have any say.
No longer the life of the party,
Fibromyalgia left me astray.
Had to change my personality,
A constant price I pay.
Pain reduced my sociability,
Ambition had to be locked away.
Saddled with this invisible disability,
Gotta keep a brave front on display.
With limited physical mobility,
Struggling to get through the day.
Hanging on to the probability,
Faith will not betray.
