I have several online friends who have a baby the same age as Ben and we often chat. One of these friends also has fibro and has been a wonderful help for me. However, the other night, we were chatting and one of them was asking about fibro...it started pretty possitive. My friend who has been diagnosed alot longer than me was explaining things. Then one of the girls asked if fibro causes damage...and it went downhill from there. The girl called me a hypochondriac and told me I should "take some pain pills and go work out". She said she didn't understand why we couldn't do that. And when my fibro friend tried explaining it she (the normal)said we were both whiny babies and that we need to shape up. I hate people like this. If it were that simple...don't you think I'd do it...I mean really...you think I like being in pain. Some people!
