when i first was told i had fm i had a friend who had already claimed benefits for it. i watched her climb ladders travel to africa and never ever ever feel the slightest bit ill it made me feel like a fraud because i could not do even a fraction of what she did on my good days. It made me feel really bad and i pushed myself to the lmit and beyond.
this lady claimed benefits for everything and drew over 3000 pounds a month in benefits which she managed to channel out. and actually bought a house in africa. well it turned out that she was NOT ill at all and it is people like like this that have turned the powers that be against fm claims. she was convicted for fraud but the damage that she and others are doing to our very real claims is making life difficult for us.
the moral of this story is two fold
never ever compare your level of illness to others.
beware of the people who are abusing us by abusing the system
. hope this doesnt annoy anyone just had to get it off my chest. thanks to my stupidity i did a lot of damage to me.
