Explaining Fibromyalgia to Family & Friends

….it’s not that easy!

When it comes to Explaining Fibromyalgia to Family & Friends, it’s a tough one. It isn’t something that comes easily to them or even to you for that matter. No matter how long you have battled with the condition, the reality is that you will always come up against opposition when you are trying to explain how this “invisible illness” affects you every day.

I have battled Fibromyalgia since 1989 and I still think that there really isn’t one member of my family that just “gets it.” And to be fair, who can blame them.

Over the years, I relied on myself to find out what I was dealing with. I did my own research and conducted a fact finding mission to get the answers. I was not about to let Fibromyalgia dictate how my life would be. Neither, would I allow any doctor to prescribe a cocktail of drugs which had the potential for making matters worse.

Online Wellness Coaching

After diagnosis in the year 2000, I was convinced that I had the answers to make a difference inside of me. To my knowledge there were no external influences that caused my Fibromyalgia. It somehow manifested within me. Maybe my response to some emotional trauma, but yes, it began with me.

For many years, trial and error was the name of the game.
