I am sorry that you and your mom are not getting along, but I have to tell you that I was kind of glad to see your post.
I have MS and my mom has fibromyalgia. She has been living with me for two months while she seeks medical treatment and she is driving me crazy! I have been having trouble with constant and widespread muscle and joint pain for several months, and the pain just keeps getting worse and worse. My mom keeps diminishing what I am going through, insisting that it is just my slipped discs acting up, but my doctor thinks I might have fibro and is sending me to see a rheumatologist. My mom complains about her pain ALL DAY LONG, but if I make one comment about my own pain, she tells me to quit complaining.
I know that my mom is in a lot of pain (she has a very severe case of fibro) but I don't understand how she can treat me this way. I am under a lot of pressure right now with a very full plate and lots of health problems, and instead of supporting me, I feel like my mom is just one more pound of pressure.
Sorry, I really needed to vent. I am going to see the rheumatologist on Monday, so hopefully after that I will know more about
what is going on with me.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer (Romans 12:12).
