I'm sure you're all relieved to know, we're all just lazy and crazy. My dh told me yesterday that he doesn't believe in CFS and there is no way that it or Fibromyalgia is real. People with CFS and FM are just lazy and lack the gumption to pull up their bootstraps and get on with life. And that if I didn't "sit on my a$$" so much I wouldn't feel so bad all the time. I have 4 kids btw, so obviously I don't just sit arouind all day. This was after I told him about what I had read about CFS possibly being contagious. He does however believe in endometriosis and IBS so I am allowed to have those. CFIDS however is just a fake illness made up by drug companies and millions of lazy people, so they can have a reason to do nothing. Afterall we know someone that took chemo and then went to work afterwards, so obviously CFS and FM are a load of crap. (his mother has FM and I have CFIDS) I told him that he was an idiot, I hoped it was transmittable and that he would catch it and that I wanted a divorce. Seriously, how I am supposed to get through this and get better when my HUSBAND of all people think this isn't real and i'm sick b/c I don't do enough? FWIW, I eat very well and do as much Yoga as I can stand, but have been in a lot of pain with this flare. I am always sick, I catch everything the kids bring home and end up bedbound for a few days with each illness. Yet that is all my fault. Like *I* control my immune system. I told him that I no longer believe in back pain. He was on pain meds for "back pain" last year. So I told him that back pain is just something lazy people make up to get out of doing things and to get drugs. The next time he mentions back pain i'm going to ridicule him for being lazy and a liar.
