i just got off the phone with my sister. She works in a medical field that treats fibro patients. She does not believe fibro is real. This hurts me so bad because we are very close and my having fibro is the only thing we have harsh words about. Even though she has watched me change, she refuses to believe I have fibro and that fibro patients are just milking the system. She had just treated a 28 yr old patient that is on disability and she is furious that someone is able to be on disablility for something that a doctor says you have when they cannot figure out what is wrong with them. It does not matter what arguements I have for the validation of being diagnosed she dismisses it. I have to say at this point that I am not on disability, I am lucky to have a husband that can financially support us well. Why do I let this bother me so much? I am an intellegent woman with fairly good communication skills but I can not get through to her. Advise? Thank you for reading this.
