Hello well firstly tell your friend I have had it since i was 12 and we have young people on the forum now who can testify that fibro has no age prejudices.
Secondly it isnt a phsycological illness ,it has now been proven without doubt that it is physical.
There are threads on here that you can print off and show to the non believers ,sometimes its a hard slog but hopefully this will help those people close to you understand better.We are all here for you anything you need to know just ask ,if you feel like ranting and letting off steam then we are all here also .I am going to send you one of my big cottonwool hugs and hope you feel at least a little better knowing you are not alone .Motherelle xxxx :hugs: :hugs:
Like sunshine in the morning, may this brighten up your day and show you that you're thought of in a warm and loving way.

Age is not discriminating when it comes to ME/fibro, we have a 15 year old on this forum who has fibro and is bedridden with it.
sorry you got the diagnoses but at least now you know what is wrong with you.
And you know what you are fighting.

Hi and welcome to the forum... as said there is no age when people get FM it's not bothered how old you are... and it's NOT in your head, well only in the sense of your brain chemicals being out of whack.

Hi Jules,
:welcome:
Sorry to hear you've been dx as fibro is not nice but I think it's much better to have a name than to not know.
If any of your friends think it's in your head tell them to look up Fibro on the NHS website, it's a recognised physical illness.
Take care :hugs:

Hi

I would not call that person a friend anymore if it happened to me, they are just ignorant and not conducive to your well being.

sorry that you have been diag but at least you now know whatit is that you have fighting against. i was only diag in march this year and im 29. so we know how you must be feeling. it is frightening, you probably feel sad, wanna cry but at the same time feel theres people worse of than you so why cry.

exactly what i felt. but this thing fm is very real its difficultto get your head round as you dont know what each day will bring. hun it does get easier to accept in time. i still find it hard to realise i have it sometimes, especially when my friends start talking about going to work and where they have been etc things that i cant do. but hey. there are alot of people on here that will be here for you including me.

as for your friends i guess she /he finds it hard that suddently you have this thing that they dont understand. they suddently think oh she cant do that or this anymore. so what can we do. so my advice to you as i have done with ssome of my friends, is give them info i.e books bits of info of here, or fibromyalgia websites. and or tell them how it makes you feel. they dont know unless you tell them. also print of the topic on here i think its under living with fibro. the spoon theory and the other one for non believers. it is a true account of how many of us feel.

good luck and im sure you will soon be able to smile again. xx
live life to the full as life is what you make itxx
