Last night I was catching up with a woman I hadn't spent time with in about 7 years. She proceeded to tell me that her fibromyalgia was "cured" and "gone" by divorcing her husband and it must have been caused by depression. I quote, "Robin, don't you think your fibro could be caused by stress?" You know, I was totally dumbfounded by her response. You expect the non-fibromites to have assinine respones, but not a fellow sufferer. I started to tell her about my whiplash injury in a car accident, but cut myself short when I realized she wasn't paying much attention to myself. For having a master's degree, I think she is pretty stupid!! robin :)
