I have had FMS since I was a baby, a lot of the symptoms run in my family, I am the only one dx. As a child, when I would say this hurt or that was a prob, my mother would say 'Everyone has that pain or prob' I assumed the whole world had this same feeling, and we ALL felt lousy. My mother was very upset when I was dx w/ FMS, like I was over reacting, it didn't come from her or her family. I was not blaming her or any of the family. I know no one 'did' anything intentionally. When we were pregnant w/ our second son my DH was dx w/ diabetes. At first we were told type 2, yr later, type 1. When our son was born, we decided we wouldn't have anymore birth children it wouldn't be fair to knowingly pass on something to our children, but I can't get mad at myself or my DH about our boys. I pray for my three children every day that they have good health and I'm so grateful for each of them being here.
We never know when we will have good news about any illness, hooray a cure is found! I pray that so many answers are coming soon for so many illnesses. Hopefully, all our children will be blessed w/ good health.
Re your drs. if they are dismissive or call all your inquiries depression, perhaps it would be better to see a dr. who understands what is going on. You need to be taken seriously, you have valid concerns. Hope you have a good day. God bless. Alice.
