Hi everyone have you found since having fibromyalgia you find it harder to cope with friends. I'm having big issues with this at the mo. over the years I've had many many friends,I'm not sure if its been a good thing in hindsight as a lot of them hurt me. I know people come in and go out of your life.
During this bad phase with the fibro I just can't cope with anything else other than my kids and my dogs. The three main friends I have at the mo all have very stressful lives and I've got totally overloaded and I'm needing a break badly. I have told them how I'm feeling and they seem to understand but it's also very scary saying "hey guys I can't help you with your problems at the mo" I've told them I do care about them very much but I'm having to be a bit selfish and look after me for a while.
Does anyone identify with this?
