I have FM/CFIDS and so far I CAN'T get my step father to understand that I am really sick, I have been ill for 10 years and my mother wanted me to move "home" so she could help me. He won't believe anything, he thinks I am lazy and a slob. I am more stressed out than at anytime in my life, and have planned away to leave this earth if things do not get better. Will some of you that are ill like me (seen the doctors, tried the cures, been tested on, etc) write to him, just use Dear Step-Father.........maybe you can get through to him were I only fail. I am 42 years old and have lost my 30's all together, I just want to live the time I have left in peace. Either stressed (leaving this realm) or peace (staying) Thanks to everyone that reads this.
