My parents just don't grasp Fibro at all, I've tried everything to explain it to them but they remain really tough on me. Today, despite being in the midst of a really bad flare, the forced me to go to an Aquacise class, which was really hard going, and well beyond my capabilities. It took every ounce of strength I had left to climb the stairs to my bedroom afterwards. I decided to go back to be with the electric blanket on to ease my sore muscles and recover my strength, but now they are shouting at me saying I can go to bed in the day time and I should be up and doing. How can they not understand how much that will have taken out of me? they think it's depression putting me in bed when it's just lack of sleep and endless pain and fatigue
