    Have you ever been asked, “So, what’s the deal with fibromyalgia? What is fibro, really?”

    When you’re asked, what do you say? Do you have a clear, concise, spiel that gives the facts or a printed list with need-to-know bullet points?

    Nope, I don’t either.

    Sometimes when I’m asked, I’m in the middle of doing something else. It takes me a moment to switch gears into educator mode. Other times, I feel that the person asking the question doesn’t really want to know facts and figures. There’s more going on than what meets the eye.

    Our answers about our personal health challenges really depend on who is asking. And, our answers change based on how they ask.

    It doesn’t take much detective work to decide whether
    someone wants to support our health challenges or confront them.

    So, I have a suggestion for you.

    Print out the following letter. Keep copies handy for the next time you’re asked questions about fibromyalgia in general, or even about your personal health challenges. This letter covers all the bases, yet gets some very important – and personal – points across in a non-technical and relatable way.

    I hope you find it useful, and if so – please share!
