Don't get me wrong, my husband is wonderful. He's great about not complaining if the house is messy or we're having frozen dinners again for the 3rd time this week. And he does believe in FM and knows that I suffer, but he does the most annoying thing: whenever my pain is really very bad and I complain about it...he comes back with "yeah, my legs are really bothering me too. Must be the change in weather." !! He's even said, "i'm achey too, maybe i have FM." What?? When he does that it angers me so much, because it's like he's minimizing the major pain i'm in, and that it's something simple like a cold or something. I've tried not to complain on a daily basis about my pains, but when i do it's like he doesn't understand at all! I usually let it go, but it's getting to me more and more. My pains are getting worse and i've mentioned to him that i'd like to get a handicapped hang tag, for days when the pain is bad, and he said "you're not handicapped." Now, my husband has been thru a lot with his own body, having gone through Peg Intron treatment for a year for hepatitis, and those treatments were horrendous! But he's better now, and I'd think he'd be a little more understanding. Does anyone have any ideas on how i can gently educate him? Thanks to all! I just love this board!
