Runnin On Empty
Me & M.E, Same Letters Separated By A Dot
One’s Who I Am, One’s What I’ve Got
One’s Who I Used To Be, Ones What I’m Not
Oh I’m Still Me, There’s Just A Dot In-Between
But It’s A Dot That Can Stop You From Living A Dream
It’s A Dot That Separates The M From The E
And While It’s Sat There It’s Hard To Be Me
The Me That I Was In Healthier Days
Before The Dot Came Forcing The Parting Of Ways
I’m Nothing As M And Empty As E
But Side By Side Again I Could Be Me
That Dot Has Got A Lot To Explain
How Can Something So Small Cause So Much Pain
So Much Devastation, Be Endlessly Cruel
It’s Just One Stupid Dot After All?
Why Does It Have To Be Stuck In The Middle
Causing Complex Symptoms That Read Like A Riddle?
I Have To Believe That Just As It Came
That Dot Will Mysteriously Vanish Again
Every Night Before Sleeping I Hope And I Pray
That I’ll Wake Up As Me Without A Dot In The Way.
Sadly not everyone wakes up, many pass from secondary problems caused by M.E, while others like Amberlin Wu battle weary from trying to fight, not only the illness but the prejudice, end up taking their own lives. She had sadly but beautifully written about her M.E journey in "The Box Story" & so I post this link in her memory and for all M.E warriors no longer with us.
One Stupid Dot That Separates The M From The E & Stops M.E From Being Me......
Later in 2018 I'm aiming to create some new designs & open another store that will offer alot more choice.
But for now, to get my Runnin On Empty design, just click on the Picture & head over to the DizzyJam store 50% of Profit from every sale goes to Charity Invest In ME. I will also be adding a list of some of those blogging, crafting & doing wonderful things to raise M.E awareness & funds.
