Have you ever disclose that you have fm only to be given the "yeah yeah I was diagnosed with that too!" My current supervisor did this to me. I was just too through. My respect for her went out the window. The insentsivtivity of it all. ( sorry not a great speller)
I'm so confused and torn by things my doctors and physio keep telling me. They keep stressing the importance of exercise but tell me not to do more than I feel able to. Even just walking from work to the bus stop I feel like my back will snap with the pain or my legs will give way with exhaustion. Do I push through and do more or do I listen to my screaming body and rest? How do you guys cope?
I meant to ask before I went on vacation, but when I went to the pain clinic and explained how I'll I have been, the doctor said I have been having a flare. That means since April 2014, she thinks I've been having a flare. Has anyone else been told this? It's like she brushed off the worsening of my symptoms as if I will recover. If it's a flare, I'll get better attitude.
Plus I have CFS/ME, so suffer from PEM and she told me to walk briskly every day! Really???!!!
