A warm welcome to everyone on line.
Yesterday and today have been BAD days, I'm sure you know what I mean.
I was diagnosed eleven years since and my partner was brilliantly supportive and attentive. He's a good bloke but as time goes on it feels as if my fibro symptoms are more of a nuisance and boring to him or is it just me that feels that. The question of 'how you feeling' gets a 'fine' reply because saying 'actually I feel like poo and I hurt so much all over I could cry' would probably floor him. Men have the instinct to 'fix' things and as he cant fix this his philosophy is to work through illness and ignore it till it goes away.
As if it's not enough to have to deal with our own little 'blessing' we have to pussy foot round other people to spare them.
I'm sorry about the rant and I do love him to bits but on bad days it would be nice to wallow in a tiny bit of tlc without feeling guilty about it. Or maybe it's just me!!!! Sorry I'm not having a go at men in general.
