I'm sure you've all struggled to get people to understand your fibro? Any advice for me? I'm 21, have suffered with fibromyalgia since I was 12, got diagnosed at 18 and I'm fed up with people saying those dreaded "but you look okay.." words.
I'm struggling to get people even close to me to understand that I'm not able to do everything at once. I can't be on top of my housework whilst looking after my two little girls and trying to keep awake.
I don't know how I was managing before, I really don't. I've just been pushed over the edge by people calling me an attention seeker / lazy / always having health visitors and heck, family members making comments because my house isn't glistening and spotless. (Not sure how many parent's houses are like that anyway, minus the fibro to tackle too..)
What's the worst comments that you've had from insensitive people that just don't get how much we put up with?
