I was diagnosed with FMS in February 2004. I was thankful to know what was wrong with me, as I had not felt well off and on since my 20's. I'm 46 now. Anyway, my husband gets so upset with me whenever I have a flare. You all know it's not something you can 'control.' But for some reason it's as though he thinks I 'fake it' to get out of doing certain things. I'm at my wits end. No matter what I say or how I try to explain this condition, he just does not understand. He tries to be compassionate sometimes, but I can tell his heart is not there. Do you all have any suggestions? I just don't know what to do, and I'm so tired of the bickering. Thank you!
