  • You would think someone who has fibro would understand that the dreaded flares usually last at least a couple of days. Poor you hope you are feeling a bit better soon .

    Must admit the damp cold weather here isn't doing my joints much good either. We had to go to a DIY place and the cold and the concrete floors have done for me I feel like crawling into bed. Take care of yourself.x

  • Thankyou and you there was a misunderstanding she hadnt seen my textsx

  • Hi Cathy

    As you say, you would think that someone else who has Fibromyalgia too would be more understanding.

    Something to remember about Fibro is that everyone is affected very differently.

    Some people are able to live a fairly normal life, whereas others struggle just to get through each day!

    Perhaps your friend has never had a flare and has mild Fibro.

    It's always good to get these things off your chest though, so I hope having your rant has helped :)

    Be kind to yourself

  • Has thanks just had text back saying she didnt recive my text .so she hasn seen it.

  • This is a good and safe place to rant, don't worry.

    It does seem strange she keeps texting you, is she a little bit "needy"? Perhaps she is worried you might have knocked her back to do something else that did not involve her.

    Perhaps she is fortunate to have never suffered a flare up and does not know how difficult it is to cope with the pain and fatigue.

    Give her the benefit of the doubt and don't let it ruin your friendship.


  • Hi know she understands as she has fibo but just got text now .saying didnt see my texts

  • Hi cathy1110 ,Hope your feeling better soon.I think some people just don't get it.You may just have to ignore this person if she makes you upset. Take care.Peck 🐤

  • Thankyou its ok now she hadnt seen her textsx

  • I am so truly sorry to read this my friend, and I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck and please take care of yourself my friend.

    All my hopes and dreams for you
