- DX FIBRO
This is my first time ever going online for help, but I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 2 days ago. I'm ok with the diagnosis, but when I told my mother she immediately became infuriated! She basically flipped out on me and said it is a fake condition and she is absolutely disgusted by anyone who seeks out this diagnosis... So here's the kicker, my mother is a fairly prominent member of the local medical community (been a nurse for 40 years and is in management at very large clinic )... I'm still in shock and I really don't know what to say or do in regards to my mother completely dismissing me and basically telling me I'm full of shit? Do a lot of people feel like she does about fibromyalgia? I'm seriously afraid to tell anyone else for fear of backlash... I promise something is wrong with me, I'm suffering, I'm not making this up.
