I found this article and I thought I'd post it. Please remember this is an honest account of what many in the health profession think or have thought in the past of Fibromyalgia & associated invisible illnesses.
It is good this honest account has identified the stigma that can face the Fibro community and let's hope articles like this make people realise, as this nurse being diagnosed herself has brought the reality of 'pain' home.
Can I ask for a constructive conversation rather than any unhelpful comments towards this as this person is in my opinion brave to admit was part of this stigma culture, in the hope this will educate others.
I look forward to your thoughts
