    I would like to have some simplified, quick and easy to remember ways to answer when someone asks "what is that"?

    I can never explain it well....I do not want to go into deep detail because most people do not want a life history they just want to know the basics......

    I know I could tell them to google it....look it up online...but I really want to be able to simply give them a brief answer!

    any suggestions?

    and i tell tell people, it's a disease of the central nervous system, where my CNS is constantly misfiring, and causing me a slew of different symptoms, pain, fatigue, IBS, irritable bladder, migraines, etc.

    My body aches like when you have the flu ALL the time and I have very bad fatigue. Than if they ask I'll tell them more, like what it's like when I'm in a flare.
