Trying Times

I’ve literally had to shut up
and take a back seat in my life.
Just watching as things unfold.

My health took a big hit
and I’ve experienced first hand
the lack of caring
for my well being in my own family.

I’ve had to suck up the pain
and push myself to get better.
It’s as if they think
that I am pretending.
Like it’s all in my head…
