Glad to meet you....I haven't been on here too much the last few days. How long have you been afflicted with our "constant companion?" ;(
I'm sorry you're feeling disconnected from your husband. Hopefully he'll come to see how hard you're trying.
Boy, do I ever hear what you're saying! I love my husband, and I know he loves me. But he is never going to be the kind of person who wants to know in any real depth AT ALL what I go through....and that's very hard for me to understand, because if the situation were reversed, I would!! It took years, but by now he does know that fibro is real, that I didn't chose this (like Rose, I recently had back surgery, so I have even more restrictions.)
But for the first few years, I tried to do way too much, and like you say, it was never enough...I kept having more pain, and we didn't have a clue why - and was a physical and emotional wreck. We had 3 young kids and it was really rough.
I hope you keep posting, because this is a great place for support. We all understand! I've had fibro for 20 years, and found this forum 2 years ago, and it has really changed my life for the better.
