Not impossible. All things considered, most of the ones I've talked to are open enough, but I'm sure they get tired of hearing about it.
As far as being able to relate at all, I would say no. I don't think anyone can relate to most of the bizarre stuff we experience. It's not like anything else the average person has ever been through, unless they've had some other biotoxin illness, Gulf War syndrome, parasites, or some other illness that has bizarre symptoms.
I would say even most people with chronic illness of other kinds cannot relate, because most of those illnesses are more singular, meaning their illness affects much fewer parts or functions of their body. Also, their symptoms tend to be more consistent in nature so they are better able to adapt to the illness. With many of us, our symptoms can change from day to day and hour to hour and be very unpredictable. Makes it very hard if not impossible to adapt our lives and schedules to our symptoms.
Very well put.
