I try not to judge people by anything they do if they aren't hurting themselves or someone else. Unfortunately, I know that I've been judge by other people who do not understand or want to understand what life is like with fibromyalgia. My sister inlaw is just such person, she thinks that I'm just being lazy. Believe me I wish it were that simple, but it isn't.
The days of being completely pain free are few and very far between. I fight my fibromyalgia every day, I absolutely hate what its doing to me, I cannot work any more. I make jewelry to help supplement what little bit of money I can make, but of course its not nearly enough.
I've always tried to live with the thought, "Judge not lest you be judged."View Thread
