Hey All, I have not written on these boards in a while though I read them constantly as I find them to be a priceless source of comfort and help. I am a 25 year old Fibromyalgia sufferer and right now I'm currently in shock at the horrible bias I'm facing I can not believe it! I feel I have to share what is currently happening to me, as it has left me feeling devastated and isolated. I'm engaged to an amazing man and the wedding is in September (not long now) we have been together four years (I've had FM for eight) I have always known that his parents have a probelm with me, they have said openly to him that they do not want him with me but they have never said why ; until now. Last night they informed my Fiancée and I that they will not be coming to the wedding because they don't support it. My Fiancée asked them out right why they see me as such a bad match for him and they finally admitted that it because I have Fibromyalgia!!!! They told him that I was sick and would one day be unable to care for myself and thus I would drag him down and burden him.. I'm honestly in total shock..of course I could defend myself by saying, no one cares for me I manage my pain on my own and do not burden anyone. But there is no point, as their ideas are so warped, they went on to say that I would pass on 'what I have' to our children if we have them, something they said a healthy woman wouldn't do. Their ignorance is staggering and has left me furious and heart broken. Because now due to an illness that I never chose to have I am being deemed 'damaged' and not worthy of love, this is sick and blatant prejudice! My Fiancée told them that he wanted nothing more to do with them and they said that if he does marry me then he is no longer their son. I have been left feeling that I have torn a family apart but there is nothing I can do. I'm just so angery and upset right now, I can not believe that I would be treated this way simply because I am an FM suffer!(I'm shaking as I'm writing this) I wanted to share this here because I'm feeling like an outcast and I felt I needed the support of others who know how difficult it is to have this illiness and judged by it.
