My son knows that the FM sometimes makes me grouchy. I've taught him that when Mommy gets irritable from the pain, it's not his fault, and he's still a good boy and a great helper. But sometimes he needs to talk it out. Son: "The FM makes you so grouchy." Me: "Yes, but you're lucky. You are young, and you don't have FM. Mommy loves you even if she gets grouchy." Son: "I don't have FM." He thinks for a minute. "I have EE. It makes me soooooo grouchy." I about fell off my chair laughing.
