Reblog if you think that Fibromyalgia is real

A lot of people have told me that Fibromyalgia isn’t real. I’ve been told that I imagine the pain and exhaustion and that I do it for attention. I’ve also been told that it’s not a disability.

I want people to know that is IS a real medical condition and disability and that we are NOT lying and we are NOT imagining it. Fibromyalgia is real, it exists and we are living proof. It’s time to change how medical professionals see Fibromyalgia and acknowledge that is is real!

What medical “professionals” are telling you its not real? That’s a recognized medical condition! They must be some sort of quack

As a Fibromyalgia sufferer, I have been told to my face by numerous doctors that Fibro is not real, that it is not a recognised medical condition, and that I’m a liar. 

Judging by the amount of notes and replies this post has gotten, I can safely assume that the majority of people who have reblogged this post have been told that their Fibromyalgia is not real and have been told that it’s “all in their heads”

Fibromyalgia is treated as a mental illness. It’s not. It’s a physical illness. Most of us are given antidepressants or told to exercise as medication! Doctors know shit all about the condition and many refuse to officially diagnose people! I went nearly two years without a diagnosis because my doctor refused to believe in Fibro. 

In the UK, it’s not recognised as a disability either.

NYTimes - Fibromyalgia, in depth report - see “Causes”, paragraph 2

I worked with someone with Fibro. You could tell when she was hurting. She didn’t talk about it, you could just TELL. So unless she was putting it on so that MAYBE people would notice. and maybe not… it’s real. And my sis-in-law is pretty sure she has it. She’s been reading up on it and it just waiting for a formal diagnosis. She goes straight down the list of symptoms like it was written for her or something.

It’s definitely real. I have had it for almost a decade, and it’s not going away. And anyone who says that chronic pain or Fibro isn’t really a disability needs to shut the fuck up forever, because they absolutely can be disabling

i think there just might need to be a more nuanced response to “feminists are ugly” than “oh yeah? look at my red lipstick and eyeliner I’m so hot!” that still places a lot of value on beauty AND “who cares about beauty” because like, yeah, a lot of people care and it is easier for some people to dismiss being called ugly than others.
