How Does Your Significant Other Handle The Fact That You Have Fibromyalgia?

How Does Your Significant Other Handle The Fact That You Have Fibromyalgia?

My husband is very supported but because I may go long periods of time without having that super bad day when it comes he feels helpless.

@A MyFibroTeam Member: Thank you so much. My husband is a very supportive husband, he takes great care of me when he knows I'm not doing too well. I know how feel when you say you feel guilty when you husband waits on you hand and foot. I am so used to keeping everything together because he works two jobs and I hate for him to worry about me. He comes home so exhausted I just want him to rest. Although I know if I said to him Honey I don't feel so good he'd muster energy to take care of me as he's walking in the door with his tail dragging behind him for being so tired. It's then that I feel like I fail him when the pain gets to be too much. But no matter what he tries to help me through. What seems to catch him of guard is the moments when everything seems fine, I'm having a good day and all of a sudden pain sets in with a vengence.
