Whipping Post - fibromyalgia version

The other day I wrote about FM being a whipping post for the media among others (TV show Bones uses fibro as an excuse for murder).  After writing that post I was inspired to listen to the song Whipping Post by the Allman Brothers Band (take your choice of the 5 minute version or the 22 minute version) and to check out the lyrics (including a nine minute video of the band, before Duane Allman died).

Ah, the music of my youth.  But back to the here and now.  I was then inspired to rewrite these classic Southern Rock lyrics.  Here's the result.
I been run down, I been lied to,
I don't know why I let that mean doctor make me a fool.
He took all my money, and my new car.
Now they’re usin’ all kinds of media
They’re makin’ fools of us ever’whar.

Sometimes I feel, sometimes I feel,

Like I been tied to the whipping post,
Tied to the whipping post,
Tied to the whipping post,
Good lord, I feel like I'm dyin'.

Some friends tell me, that I’m such a fool,

And I have to stand by and take it, all for havin’ Fibro.
Drown myself in sorrow, and I look at what they’ve done.
But nothin' seems to change, the bad times stay the same,
And I can't run.

Sometimes I feel, sometimes I feel,

Like I been tied to the whipping post
Tied to the whipping post,
Tied to the whipping post,
Good lord, I feel like I'm dyin'.

Sometimes I feel, sometimes I feel,

Like I been tied to the whipping post
Tied to the whipping post,
Tied to the whipping post,
Good lord, I feel like I'm dyin'.
