There is nothing fun about lying around in terrible pain. There is nothing fun about a RA flair. You healthy people think of lying around as what you do on a rainy sunday. Well this is a whole other ballgame. Its not fun and I am anything but lucky.
Same goes for fibromyalgia - most people think I live a life of leisure, that I’m trying to con everyone into thinking I’m feeling worse than I actually am. Well, you know what? You get to be the expert on you. Who knows better than you how you feel, how you think, what you’re able to accomplish. It follows that I get to be the expert on me. So could everyone just stop pretending they know better than I do when it comes to my illnesses?
