I'm not a male but that is the way my Dad feels. Even though he has another disorder, he HATES to admit that he is sick. He has always been strong for his family but sometimes you just have to realize that you are not weak for being sick. I hope that this helps some. Take care and God bless!

Hi Mike. Illness doesn't care if you are male or female. It is still the same across the board. Yu are still who you are and since you know what you have you have to determine through communication with your doctors to get you back on track with the proper medication, exercise and a friend to vent every once in a while. This disease hits women, men,teens, young adults it doesn't care. It's ok Mike you are still that Alpha Male.

Hi Mike,
My 23 year old son is 6'2 and was diagnosed with fibro when he was a teen. This is a guy who has broken many bones playing football and has a very high pain tolerance.
It's heartbreaking to see this big teddy bear when he's having a flare up. He's as weak as a kitten and can barely function. God gave him a wicked sense of humor, which our family has learned can help during tough times. Although I'm not a male, I sense what you're feeling. Illness does not make you less of a man. Take good care of yourself, you deserve only the best!
