As I am lying here in pain (and wishing I never took time off from work), I read an article and it pissed me off. Not because she is in pain, not because she heard everything that I’ve heard. There are actually so many things I can relate to with her and what she wrote.
What pisses me off is her declaration that it can’t possibly be fibro. I am so glad that she kept pushing and found a root cause for her pain, god knows whenever I get tests done, all I do is pray that this time SOMETHING will show up. But when it doesn’t and you have had all the tests imaginable and you have nicknamed yourself a human pin cushion, who is terrified of attaching yourself to another person and put them through this hell but praying that you’re not alone because you need love and support, the declaration is a slap in the face.
Because guess what, sometimes it is JUST fibromyalgia. Not because you are a woman. Not because the doctor is “lazy” and just wants to diagnose you with something, but because every test currently known to man says so.
