How to teach others about fibromyalgia
1 Replies
Shelz929 - July 15

Hello! I was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I stay at home with my 1 year old all day and then go to work when my fiancé gets home. I then work until 10 at night and do it all over again. As everyone knows I am very tired, exhausted and in lots of pain when I get home. My fiancé and parents don't do anything to help me out or let me rest. They don't understand just how bad I Hurt everyday and how tiring my days are. What can I do to get some help from them? I tell them how sore I am every day and they tell me to "toughen it out". I really try my best and I go from 6 AM until 10 PM every night and they don't understand. Please help

Sit your fiancé down and explain that this is not something that you can just "tough thru" and that you need help. If he isn't willing to try to help you I would rethink getting married. If it weren't for the support of my husband I would not survive! He does almost everything including 15 hours a day working and going back and forth, laundry, cooking, shopping, taking me to dr appointments, feeding nd cleaning up afer the horses, walking the dog, cutting and carrying firewood (we heat with wood in Alaska) hauling water (we don't have running water) carrying buckets out to empty and anything else that there is to do. My job, in his mind, is to keep the bed warm, hug him and love him. Often this makes me feel like I am useless but with all the health issues I have its all I can do. We have no family here other than our 21 yr old son who just moved out on his own so have no support from outside. If he loves you, as a husband should, then he will do whatever it takes to support you!
