Spundzy, I found your post to be very interesting! I too am from a dysfunctional family and my Dad was an alcoholic. I do think over the years I have felt anger and resentment directed towards family members of which I've stuffed. for the most part I've learned to let go and forgive but not 100%. I once had a doctor several years ago tell me that people with Fibro typically are intelligent, perfectionist and have been abused or had dysfunction in their family. This sure makes one wonder if infact there could be some sort of a connection. Would enjoy hearing others opinions on this topic. Best to all!
