It Hurts To Be Me

A charity single by Joey Paul for Fibromyalgia research

My name is Joey,

I am thirty and have had Fibromyalgia and M.E since I was nineteen. Every year on May 12th I make a post in my live journal and try to raise awareness in the small circle of friends who read it.

I think my friends are as informed as they are ever going to get so now, this year,  I decided to do something different. I am a writer, I write books and have had four published with a fifth due out in July.

I started playing the ukulele back in August 2010 and have since written nine songs, the latest being the single “It hurts to be me.”

I decided that since I had some awesome friends who make it sound wonderful, the possibility was it could raise some money for The Fibroduck Foundation. So despite the fact that it scares me silly, that people may hate it and all of that. I decided to release it and from there, any profits made could go to the foundation.  

I wanted to something more than just write a post, I wanted to say what a lot of fibromites are thinking that, it hurts to be us and so, while sleep was evading me one day, I wrote the song and my friend Kim and her husband have mixed it and made it into the beauty it is today. Every penny of profit will go to the Fibroduck Foundation.

I don’t want to make any money off my misery (I do that enough with my books!) I want to make a difference. I can only hope it will.
