Welcome to the group, Raven. This is a great group and everyone here is friendly and helpful. Don't you hate it when people think you are making up your pain?! When my doc did that to me, I thought maybe he was right. It was nice to finally have a reason for the pain and know I wasn't loopy. (loopy about the pain anyway!) Sue
Hi Raven and welcome to our family. I think many of us have had family members dx us or label us. I'm sure I still have some non believers in my family but that is their problem.
Sounds like you have had a tough life. Read and ask questions, we are here for you.
luv and hugs
