A Song Dedication To Fibro Awareness – We Are The Champions

A Song Dedication To Fibro Awareness – We Are The Champions

Dedicating ‘We Are The Champions” by Freddie Mercury to Fibro Awareness

Fibro Awareness words in (parenthesis)

I’ve paid my dues
(Chronic muscle pain, muscle spasms, or tightness)

Time after time
(Day after day, hour after hour, minute after minute, with no end in sight)

I’ve done my sentence
(Moderate or severe fatigue and decreased energy, Insomnia or waking up feeling just as tired as when you went to sleep. Stiffness upon waking or after staying in one position for too long)

But committed no crime
(I didn’t ask for this, I didn’t go looking for it.)
And bad mistakes
I’ve made a few
(Doing things I knew would hurt the next day)
I’ve had my share of sand kicked in my face
(Well meaning people or family being insensitive or lack understanding or empathy)

But I’ve come through
(I’m still alive and fighting)

And we mean to go on and on and on and on
(We intend to see a cause and cure and hold on with hope)

We are the champions – my friends
(We will not give up hope!)

And we’ll keep on fighting Till the end
we_are_the_champions_fibro_awareness(It’s not in us to give up, we are fighters to reclaim some sense of our former self.)

We are the champions
(We are champions for not giving up hope.)
We are the champions
(We will no longer be ignored by the medical establishment!)

No time for losers
(We have no time for negative people in our lives. We try to stay positive in the midst of pain. We need positive attitudes around us more than ever)
‘Cause we are the champions of the World

(We will be the champion of the world when everyone that suffers from fibromyalgia will have medical help and a cure.)

I’ve taken my bows
And my curtain calls

(Our bows and curtain calls will come when they know what causes fibromylagia and have a cure or better treatment)
You brought me fame and fortune
And everything that goes with it
I thank you all

(We thank everyone who has supported us and understood us throughout our disabling illness)
But it’s been no bed of roses

(Difficulty remembering, concentrating, and performing simple mental tasks AKA Fibro Fog. Abdominal pain, bloating, nausea, and constipation alternating with diarrhea, AKA IBS)

No pleasure cruise

(Tension or migraine headaches, Jaw and facial tenderness. Sensitivity to one or more of the following: odors, noise, bright lights, medications, certain foods, and cold)
I consider it a challenge before
The whole human race
And I ain’t gonna lose

(Our health has been taken from us but not our hope. With hope we can’t loose.)

And we mean to go on and on and on and on

(And we mean to see this illness through to the end!)

We are the champions – my friends
And we’ll keep on fighting
Till the end

(We are not the type of people to give up.)
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers

(We’ve had many distractors calling fibromyalgia a trash can diagnoses and other disparaging remarks. We have no time for negative people.)
‘Cause we are the champions of the World

We are the champions – my friends
And we’ll keep on fighting
Till the end

(We choose not to let the constant bone crushing chronic pain keep us down. We will keep of fighting until a cure or better treatment is found.)
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers

(We have no time for negativity or distractors. We are down enough and we need positive energy around us to help us fight this chronic illness.)
‘Cause we are the champions

(Not giving up makes us champions my friend.)
