Understanding people with Fibromyalgia - Part 1: Fibro Fog

Life with Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) can be frustrating given the umpteen symptoms and side effects of strong medicines. But what hurts fibromyalgia patients more than anything else is the indifference they face from family, friends and colleagues. And I am not saying this based solely  on my experience, for which I have so many examples that I can compile a book if I can remember them all! This is the voice of over 2000 people on the Facebook page of this blog. 

From Being Human to Being Humane

This post is dedicated to the 2400 (and counting) fans of the Facebook page of this blog. And if you are not a member of this page, this will inspire you a bit or a lot more. 

Life is strange and interesting. So many things happen for so many reasons. And so many things happen for no reason at all.

Good things happen to good people.
Bad things happen to bad people.
Good things happen to bad people.
Bad things happen to good people.

Well, good and bad are relative terms for sure. But some things shake our world, for better or for worse.

The pain of relations

The irony of 'close' relations is what hurts more than Fibromyalgia.

So they know you cannot do various things when you have Fibromyalgia but they will never acknowledge it so that you keep doing the household chores and other work. And they will never ask 'how are you feeling today' and if you ever mention that, they will only say, 'I know you are hurting all the time'!
