Sorry to have come on here for a complete rant - but had to get it out of my system!! I have recently felt well enough to return to work part time, as a medical secretary ( I have 2 degrees but my body doesn't want me to do my old career - so I had to be realistic) Anyhow a Dr comes through coughing badly, people ask her about the cough she let's us all know she's had it for 18 months and that her own gp suggested it may be fibromyalgia. She then goes on to declare how she looses faith in drs and she'll change drs as she isn't being labeled a 'mad cow'! No-one at work knows about my fms due to ridiculous reactions like this, but I kind of expected more from a gp really. Now of course noone at work will know about my fms either. Has left me feeling disheartened
