I recently finally sent my Father and Step-mother the Letter to Normals and another article that explains how the friends and families of people with FMS and CFS can help and what they can expect. I hesistated doing it I was afraid that they would think I was lying, attempting to gain sympathy or attention by it. They have a history of playing down my health and generally not taking me seriously. Well, after I sent it, this was the reply I got. Amy, Your articles were enlightening. At this point, we have no idea where you fit into this picture, but we will certainly save the information and try to be sympathetic and aware. Hope to see you on Saturday. What do you all think she meant by, "At this point, we have no idea where you fit into this picture." And how I should respond, if at all, to this?
