    "Did I say something wrong?"

    Misunderstandings happen. Do they happen more when one has Fibro? I'm hesitant to even mention this wondering if it will be taken out of context. It just seems to me that a number of people must read into words or comments things that are not there or at least not intended to be mean or hurtful...

    Not convinced I have fibromyalgia

    I've been absent from the forum for a while, just got into a depression because of multiple things going on and kind of closed off as much as I could to the outside world.
