My chronic illness is a monster

My chronic illness is a monster
It makes me less than
It makes me make mistakes
It makes me look lazy
Like I don’t care
Like I’m stupid

The pressure in my head so intense
The fog so thick
You say things that are incorrect
Communication incoherent
The fog so thick

You see words on the screen
The fog is so thick
You can’t read them
The words swirl around you
You can’t comprehend

The fog so thick
Fatigue so severe
Head pounding

You produce substandard work
Not because you don’t care
Not because your lazy
But because your sick.

      I’m sorry you relate! It’s a horrible feeling isn’t it
