Gee I feel so bored today, I wish something good would occur
There's nothing on the TV and no juicy gossip to share
Oh, I'm not a gossip mind you, I just like a little chat
I like to talk about nothing but a bit of this and that!
I used to be so busy and time just seemed to fly
But now I'm busy watching, time just passing by
I have a daily list of jobs, I'm like a robot programmed to clean
And no matter how I do it, it's still the same routine

I need to break this system and go and do some work
And when I mentioned it to hubby, he simply went berserk
How can you hold down any job, you wouldn't last the day!
You'd cause so much damage, you'd owe them a week's pay
I knew that he was right of course, I'm permanently dropping the dinner
And keeping warm with layers of clothes, that hang off me coz I'm thinner
You'd be a liability, the office jerk, the ice woman, the freak
And you'd look a proper idiot wrapped up just like a geek

So much for my confidence, sclero takes that away from you too
I used to run my own business with so much work to get through
I used to employ several people, I had so much on my plate
The Tax, Insurance and VAT were jobs I used to hate
I used to be respected, a businesswoman with zest
I made it in a man's world and always came out best
I stood my ground with management, protected all my staff
Had fun with all my workers, oh how we used to laugh

Then one day like a bolt from the blue, I was struck down with this curse
I never thought life could be so bad, in fact it was much worse
I had to give up my business and my world changed from that point on
And everything I worked for suddenly vanished and it was gone
I spent so long in hospital I nearly had to pay them monthly rent
And flowers, cards and medicine couldn't replace the life that went

So ask me if I'm feeling down or if I feel my life will end
The answer is no way, not I, I won't lie down my friend
Coz what's the use of worrying it never put's things right
You have to take each day at a time prepare yourself to fight
And yes, I know how hard it is to face each coming day
Not much to look forward to, and not much else to say
The lack of understanding is sometimes hard to take
No proper diagnosis for each and every ache
The doctor who shakes his head coz he don't really know
And makes you feel a nuisance each time you have to go

I hope they eventually find a cure then we'd all be well together
And not worry about the clothes we wear to face the bitter weather
We'd eat the thing's we dare not try, live our lives to the extreme
And be the life and soul again, how distant that life may seem
So hang on in there please keep strong and keep an open mind
One day in the distant future a cure they may find
And I'll go back to my business and go about my life
But just for now I'm happy just being a mum and wife
You see, I'm not boring and I shouldn't feel so blue
Coz although I lost my business, I still have all of you!
