- DX FIBRO
I have a friend who has been experiencing beginning fibro symptoms for a couple years now, Hes mother has been battling it for 20 plus years. When he tells me how hes feeling and I see how he reacts to different situations I can clearly see myself in the early stages. Sad thing is he is still in denial about it and refuses to go get the diagnosis, he says he feels like hes being a baby and its just "all in his head"(my least favorite phrase btw!)and he doesn't want to be "labeled". Also his wife and him just had their first child and they have been struggling because of it. Ive told him my opinion and so has his mom and many others but like I said when I was in that stage I didn't listen to advice from people who had already been fighting it. I guess I told his wife that he will have to hit rock bottom so he can decide to take action on his own. I just really feel for him and what hes going through, i wish i had better advice and I hope their relationship can sustain and he doesn't harm himself while hes on the roller coaster to acceptance. It took me a few years to truly accept it. how about you?
