They will never really understand...your friends, my friends, all fibromite friends will never understand unless they have fibro. Honestly, I just try to remember that unless I walked this walk, I would not totally understand it either. Friends and family can read up and get educated as much as possible, but still it is just not comprehendable (did I spell that right??? lol) It is frustrating, and the spoon theory is great as well as other information.
You can always come here and vent cause we sure understand.... boy, do we understand!!!
