When I tell people I have Fibromyalgia, the majority of people just smile and say ahh OK. The reality is that I think even those closest to me don’t fully comprehend what I deal with on a daily basis. How could they when the fact is that the most of the time I look absolutely fine. The “joys”of having an invisible illness means that we suffer alone, don’t really know how to explain our condition to others and look fine when feeling crap.
Here is a great clip (courtesy of Jennifer Charette) that I found on You Tube which basically…yes, very basically explains what is happening, it is useful to show to loved ones and friends and hopefully they will get a better understanding of what Fibromyalgia really is and how it affects us.
