It is horrible. People just don't understand. You look fine, so therefore you are fine to them.

Fibromyalgia has a lot of misconceptions attached to it. What do you wish people understood about fibromyalgia?

I'm in pain 24/7, even while on the pain medication and the medication for fibromyalgia. It is hard for me to make it to work. When I go home, it's because I can't handle the pain any longer and I just go to bed.

Has any one told you that "you don't look sick?"

My husband has a hard time understanding. He keeps asking how I feel. I usually just tell him fine, because I have given him numerous articles on fibromyalgia and he still doesn't get it.

Tell us, who is your biggest support system while coping with fibromyalgia?

My best friend is my biggest support.
