Hi I was reading someones post about not wanting to be a burden on family and friends. I am having the same problem. When I wasn first sick ,y weight dropped to 83lbs and I couldn't walk or even get out of bed. that was 12 years ago. Ever since then I have never felt totally well but I have lost a lot of wieght again and my husbands having a fit. But he thinks there is nothing wrong with me because I can still get out of bed and move around. But everyday I still do not feel well and my kids and him are tired of hearing it. I have had new symptoms as of late like my joints hurt, my legs hurt besides my stomach hurting constantly. But he thinks because I don't look sick that I'm ok.
My mom had RA and fibromyalga and I am concerned that I have it too but when I bring it up to him he just says I'm crazy.
I'm sorry for venting out my problem with this but I was hoping someone else has or is going through the same thing as me and can give me some advice. I really don't have any friends at all because I can't go out and do things with them.
Thanks for reading.
