Hi Hil and welcome to the family. It's hard in the beginning with fibro cause your trying to understand all this yourself and accept it and than when you have family that doesn't believe and refuses to be educated on fibro it gets very frustrating and depressing sometimes. There is probably going to be some hurt feelings over it cause there are some that will never understand it or even try to understand it but we can't let those people stress us. We know how we feel and we know this is real. I have some family members that never bring it up and ignore the fact there is anything wrong with me. I have some that try very hard to understand what it feels like to have fibro. It's the same way with friends. It's not fair that not only do we suffer greatly we also have to put up with the non believers.
Hang with us Hil and you will get all the support you need.
luv and hugs
