Oh Boy!!! This is a good one!!! It's just plain MEN!!!
My husband had 2 different colds within one month. He was on death's door.. or so he thought. I laughed to myself when he groaned. Not that I wanted the dear man to be miserable, BUUUUUUTTTTTT..... C'mon!!! Give me a break here.. Reallllllllllllllly?!
Men just don't get pain. - I agree w/tyno, not our fibromite brother - but guys that have never dealt with Chronic Pain. Geez, I mean a guy has never squeezed out a baby, had menstral cramps, had a hysterectomy, nothin' like that. Give a man one day with a period and he would die a thousand deaths!!!!!
I saw a great t-shirt the other day that said "Fibromyalgia isn't for Sissies!!" - I think that's why MOST men don't get it. (and if you are one of our Fibro brothers, YOU ARE NOT A SISSY"). Most men couldn't handle it!!
My husband had some ingrown toenail problems not too long ago and he was on the verge of death.. I thought, try having the feeling of that ingrown toenail all over your body accompanied by an anxeity attack and a migraine headache and that's a good day for a fibromite!!!!
OOooOO, I think I'd better go calm down, I'm gonna bite my hubby's head off for stuff that happened over a week ago!! LOL!!!!
So NO, Dear Sue.. you're not complaining.. you're just dealing with a man!!!
Now, GET IN THAT HOT TUB, (man do I wish I had one of them!!)
