I don't have Fibromyalgia but...

Postby neilfairbrother » Mon Sep 27, 2010 8:33 am

... my GF does. So why isn't she on here instead of me? Because she is French and lives in French France, just East of Paris, in Meaux. Where the Brie comes from.

Virginie has been diagnosed with FM so I want to understand as much as possible how I can help.

Cheers

Neil

Honestly, from here there isn't much you can do. FM normally requires physical support as much as emotional, and I have to be brutally honest, emotional support from someone who isn't with you, can't see your pain, see how it makes your life hard is really hard to accept. It can be hard enough to accept that kind of help from someone in the same room sometimes.
I do however, commend you for trying to understand the condition. Depending on how bad she has it and what her exact problems are with it, her needs and support will vary.

Reading is one of the best places to start I found for my OH.
Google Fibro and read, read, read. Then when she tries to talk to you about it you will have some idea of what she means.

Hi Neil, its great that you want to understand fibro. :clap: Your G/F is lucky to have you.
You can give her the forum`s addy for her to pop on to.

Have a good read around the forum and any questions just ask. :hugs: :flowers:
