As troublesome as fibromyalgia is, having the condition does not mean it is the end of anything pleasurable or enjoyable in one’s life just like the intimacy with one’s partner while living with the disease. Though a fibromyalgia patient’s ways of displaying affection may be affected, what matters is not the constant elaborate expression of love but trust. Like relationships that have withstood the tests of time, trust is a key factor in keeping the relationship strong and going, despite the challenges the couple are facing. Being a source of support for the afflicted partner is also a must when one is in a relationship with a fibromyalgia patient. So long as you still have the heart for one another, any obstacle, no matter in what form, won’t be enough to let you down.
