Jeannie what a terrible thing for your mum to say. My stepmother used that word fat also. It is so blunt and unforgiving word.When I said I had actually lost weight she looked at me and said, no, even your face looks fat.
My father is an extension of her unfortunately otherwise I would be more forgiving but I havent the strength. Told my father I need time on my own. To be honest I dont know if I want to see him again. The stress would be to much and all he talks about is her.He sent me an email saying she is my best friend and always has my interests at heart. He is a puppet on a string. Im going to just rest for now and not think of either of them. He said that if the doc was iffy on my sypmtoms maybe the doc was right, thats how much support he gives me. No aa break is needed. Thanks for all the replies and for letting me hear your feelings about it, it really does help me think ive done the right thing.. suez2
Aw Geez Sue, that's too bad that your father and stepmom are so insensitive. I wish people didn't have to be that way and sometimes I wonder how some people can turn out so mean. They sound like a real drag and you are probably going to be better off with them at a distance. It is hard to keep your attitude up when you are being drug down by those around you. and a good attitude is important when dealing with fibro. I'm glad you have this family here who care for you and know you are not putting on.

My goodness, what a step-monster! Do you want me to book a 27 hour flight there so I can kick her butt into the outback? Just because my muscles have atrophied, I can't use my hands, and I have the energy of a ground sloth doesn't mean I can't take her! We'll teach her not to mess with our good friend, Sue.
