Hi, Wanda, and welcome! As the other members have said, sometimes, no matter what you say, people don't understand. But you can try to explain a little about fibromyalgia. We have a good thread you should read...Fibro 101. It's the first thread on the forum. There are links to good information about fibromyalgia. The more you know about your illness, the better able you are to explain it to others. One of the links is called The Spoon Theory. This has helped many to explain what it is like to have fibromyalgia.
I'm so sorry that you have this illness...especially since you are young. But, we can help you to live a full and enjoyable life with fibromyalgia. Our members share what they do to help themselves so you can learn a lot here. Don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you.
I'm so glad you found us and joined in. I hope to hear more from you soon.
