I’m a 44-year-old, fibromyalgia diagnosed for the first time in 1988. As a man, the worst thing about fibromyalgia is the criticism I received about “spending so much time in bed.” While it presents a range of problems for all of us who were affected.
“To him, what’s wrong? “For years, it was a chant.
“What is that,” they say, “Fibromyalgia? “Are tests available?
“There’s certainly everything in his head! Fibromyalgia was previously not accepted by me as an excuse for being a bedridden man.
To all those who do not know, in particular those of the medical community, I would just like to say that I don’t want to be bedridden at the age of 44! I would like to participate in completely too many marvelous activities. I can’t get out of bed more often than not — I can’t. Or I am totally exhausted in too much pain! There are, therefore, few other activities I can use besides essential activities to which I have to drag myself. It doesn’t live in many ways, it doesn’t live at all.
It seems that things are changing quickly after seemingly suffering alone for the past 18 years. It seems only that the existence of a National Association of Fibromyalgia has given the non-sayers a break. It seems that a further break was given to the Fibromyalgia AWARE magazine on the coffee table. I am confident that the exact nature of fibromyalgia will soon be revealed through NFA efforts, that the markers are found and we are affirmed. I look forward to getting up and down again, to the same frenetic pace that was once my distinctive feature.
Symptoms of fibromyalgia are antitheses of many male characteristics, strength , endurance, etc. It was my experience that I saw nothing less than a man without strength and strength. I hope to recover my strength and endurance again. I am confident that I will through the great efforts of NFA. NFA is going to help me to be seen again, in addition to all the great works it does, as a respectful man, not a lazy person, not an insane person — just a man with a real disease who wants to get better.
