Do other family members understand your condition and how you feel daily?
My family doesn't bc apparently it's all in my head for attention. So wrong when you need support
Some of mine do and some don't. I quit trying to explain to ppl who have no idea what it's all about. Some will never truly understand this illness anyhow. Hugs. Take care 🌺
I don't really take the time to explain a lot. My husband is very supportive and goes with me to most appointments. My children understand the multiple auto immune issues that I have. But I don't burden them with a lot cause they have their own families and issues. My sister is also supportive. No one has ever said it is in my head. I would try to print out information so that they understand the situation. But if they were very negative about it, I would not spend time justifying my life. It is a sad thing when families are not supportive.
Please don't let others ignorance about fibro get to.We are our own advocates, and yes normal feeling people are not going to understand,and thats ok stay consistent on your health learning to have a life with fibro. Freinds and family will either be there ir not the most important person is you. If you need to talk were all here
Thanks I appreciate that. I had to stop talking to family bc they were so on the line of " Oh you are looking for attention " I don't need that in my life so they are out. haven't talked to me I 2 years
