There are a lot of things people don’t understand about fibromyalgia. People who don’t get it will say things like, “It’s all in your head,” or, “fibromyalgia is a made-up thing.” Obviously, fibromyalgia is real, and the pain is real, and all of the negativity surrounding it doesn’t do anything to help.
