Help with Non-believers

dwilmoth - May 21

My husband's best friend is a Physical Therapist. He's a non-believer in FMS. You know, It's all in my head. I am trying to educate my hubby on this and he is telling him all I need is PT, exercise, and nutritution. That it's not really a good diagnosis that most of us diagnosed are not really suffering from FMS. We just need to toughen up. How do I combat this? Like when I suggest that I forgot something b/c of Fibrofog, or when my fingers are blue b/c of rheynaulds, or my nose runs all of the time b/c of rhinitis, or when I am cold all of the time, or the diiziness has me banging into walls and hubby suggests we all do that, quit blaming everything on fibro. You just need to forget that diagnosis and not use it as a crutch. When I am thinking Thank God I have this diagnosis b/c I thought I was losing my mind b/4 I got this diagnosis.

Hi there - I have found the same thing, now I am diagnosed I'm stronger in my opinions and actions. And basically now don't bother to explain unless they also have fibro. The old story - walk a mile in my shoes.

Cheers
Julie.

I think this is Lyme disease. Go read at www.lymenet.org/FlashDiscussion/MedicalQuestions and see what you think. We can get tested for the bacterial infection and treated.

just tell him he don't get it because he don't have it. i often explained it like image you're climbing a hill, and just when you feel you can't take it because of the pain and burning, that's how we feel just by trying to comb our hair or wash dishes and see if he can understand then
