My problem is my in-laws. They do not believe FM can be "that bad" or if it's even real. I don't exactly know what they think, but I do know that they just can't find it in their hearts to understand, or for that matter what to understand. I just don't know what to do anymore. I was diagnosed with FM almost 2 years ago, although I believe I've had it much longer than that. I was diagnosed and ill prior to my marriage of 1 1/2 years. I am now unable to work and going thru the disability appeal process. At this point I don't want to be around them or have anything to do with them anymore. They have hurt me so bad and said such mean and cruel things about me directly to my parents, myself AND my husband. I was brought up in a very different type of family and I am having a very hard time dealing with this. I cannot talk to my husband about my real feelings because he puts his family before me. He thiks that I'm trying to come between him and his family and has actually said this to me. I just don't know how to handle this anymore. There is not one day that goes by that this does not bother me or that I don't think about it. I just don't seem fit in with this family. What the heck am I supposed to do????
