HI, Sally, and welcome! I'm so glad you found us and joined in! My husband wasn't a talker either. I think I became a pretty good mind reader over the years. He couldn't handle my talking about pain, either. I know he loved me but men can be sooo different than women in how they think and how they react. So, I talked with a friend that did understand a little.
Over the years I found this site. Now, we DO understand what you are talking about and we do give each other a lot of support. You have come to a great place. We have wonderful people that love to help one another and we really do care about each other, too. I know you will like it here.
Be sure to check out the Fibro 101 thread...the second thread on the forum. There are links to good information about fibromyalgia. Some of it might come in handy to try to let your husband know what you are dealing with. Use your judgement on that one. I know my husband was always busy and not sure if he would have read things. But, he did help me around the house and with the dinner dishes. So, I'm not complaining about him.
I'm so glad you are here. Read back posts and ask questions. We are here to help you. I hope to hear more from you soon!
