I do tell people I have fibro. I get all number of differing responses.....from "oh, that's the disease where you just think you are in pain, but you're not!" to "Oh, I feel so badly for you!" I tell everyone so they get educated. I know I have pain, so if they don't believe me, "oh well." I understand that some folks with fibro don't want to say anything...but please be brave and try it. It helps all of us in the long run.
I'm so glad you got good responses from people. This is a very encouraging thread. *hugs*
