Do you just assume that the people who know you so well and know that you have fibro really understand how it pervades every day of our lives?
  • Yes, they know I have fibro so they must know that I hurt.
  • Yes, my spouse and family know because they see me everyday.
  • No, I realize my family does not always "walk in my shoes".
  • No, and it makes me feel isolated and alone.
  • No, because to assume it to make an "ass" of "u" and "me".
