But you don’t look sick…

That’s a common statement I have heard from friends, relatives, colleagues and strangers many times over. 

Fibromyalgia is a real syndrome, recognized by rheumatologists 25 years ago. Check out this great video by Dr. Roger Murphree in the US. I inquired about getting treatment from him a few months ago but couldn’t afford it at the time. 




One thought on “But you don’t look sick…

  1. I have also heard it. Sometimes I choose to think it is meant as a compliment from well-meaning friends… kind of a form of encouragement. I forgive them as I know that they can’t fully understand what we go through. Still, there are others who say it with that certain “tone” and we all know who they are…then, it can be devastating. You certainly are not alone! {{{HUGS}}}
