My 18 year old son is very intelligent, however, he doesn't understand how debilitating my FM\CF can be. He feels I can work toward being better and one day I will be fine. He also feels that my illness is more emotional than physical. I have explained to him that because of the lack of sleep at times and constant fatigue, I do get some Depression, and I get fibrofog. He believes I can change that. I do take an SRI, Zoloft, but it is not a cure. He has known about my fibromyalgia since he was 10, when I was diagnosed. He has seen me at my worst and best, which may be hard for him to realize that I can go from okay to awful and back in a short period of time. Today he used "psychosomatic" to describe me. How do I help him understand that I will probably never be what I was 10 years ago? I feel he is angry at me for having FM\CF.
