These are not my words. They are written by one of my favorite music artists. I just can't get them out of my head lately and they resonate with me and my situation so much lately so I thought they may be helpful to some of you as well. So thank you JJ Heller for being such a wordsmith and music magician. If you've never heard her stuff you should pop over to her page and check her out. She is awesome and I've met her in person and she is so sweet! Many of her songs could be related to the struggle with chronic illness. But like I said this one is really resonating with me right now. So here it is:
"LivingAm I really livingOr am I just existingHiding away
Danger The world is full of dangerBut if I never try to go outsideMy heart will waste away
Come and save me
You’re the only source of all the peace I need Come and save me
You tell me life will not be pain freeWhat will be will always be in your controlDarkness is light to you And all you ask me to doIs trust what you say is true
You are strongerThan any terrible possible scenario todayCome and save meYou’re the only source of all the peace I need Come and save me
Save me …"~~JJ Heller's "Save Me"
