Default Re: I'm New ... and in pain

Hmm, I think I understand what you're talking about. So far since having fibromyalgia, I've seen people react in two main ways. One group of people tend to do what I call "poor baby" (they're the pillow fluffers/enablers of the world), and the other show a general lack of understanding, sometimes they even react harshly towards the pain. I think it's really great that even though you're dealing with a lack of understanding from your family, it still sounds like you are gracious towards them. Is your family very educated on fibromyalgia? Sometimes I've found it helpful to educate people on the illness to provide a little bit better of an understanding.
