    Ok, guys. I am so frustrated. I truly believe that my bf also has fibro. He is in a lot of pain and does not sleep. It is starting to take a toll on him mentally emotionally and physically. Pain is out of sight b/c he is under more stress than usual.

    He is scared to death of going to the doctor and especially scared of needles.

    I told him that they would probably do bloodwork one time on first visit just to make sure that it isn't anything other than fibro. Any suggestions on how I might convince him to let me take him to the doctor? Maybe I should just make him an appt. and tell him he is going. Got to do something sooner than later.

    To all the men here, were you stubborn about going to the doctor? What made you finally decide to go? Did you guys go own your own will or did your wife have to drag you? Would love to hear from some of you. Afterall men do think different than women.

    Did you think to mention to him about the free candy and

    balloon after the exam?? That's how my former wife

    finally would convince me to go!

    Just a Thought,
