How Do You Handle Family And Friends Turning A Deaf Ear When You Say You're In Pain?

How Do You Handle Family And Friends Turning A Deaf Ear When You Say You're In Pain?

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

Thanks to all my fibro warriors for taking time to reply. I find it frustrating and at times it makes me angry when I say I'm in pain and I'm ignored...and it's like they don't even hear me. I guess they think if they do that enough, I'll stop complaining...and I don't think I complain or comment about my pain too much...just can't win...if I don't say anything then my family members say:"why didn't you say something"? Just a losing battle I guess. Thanks again for your help.

I don't handle it very well!! My friend list has dropped and the family who don't understand or at least try to understand, I don't really have much contact with anymore!

I just suffered through it. I'm so tired of explaining how difficult some days are to someone who actually doesn't care one bit and can't emphasize. Kinda used to it. By the way, my symptoms have very much decreased since 4 weeks ago I started to use organic vitamin D and magnesium. The pain is still here but it's much more bearable. I'm hoping as I keep using those vitamins, I'll get even less sore.

I make my visits short..if I feel pain rising..because most people will not understand...I do find Fibro friends are the best to have..because they understand..and they are not upset..they get it..
