I never realized how many people know nothing about fibro. People are so quick to judge or to act like I'm lying. Trust me nobody wants to make up this stuff. Not being able to be the energetic mom I want and need to be is heartbreaking
Chronic pain is exhausting. Patients tend to minimize their pain to try to seem as "normal" as possible. We don't want to be perceived as complainers so we keep much of our pain experience to ourselves.
