This has been a typical conversation for me for years. It may be the one day I've put on makeup and done my hair and people will say they are glad I'm better now.
They didn't see me go back to bed after my shower to rest, take pain killers before attempting to blow dry my hair with painful arms, see me go back to bed again for another rest, then tackle putting on surgical stockings and arthritis cream, another rest, then do my make up, another rest, have breakfast, another rest, get dressed, another rest, leave the house and sit exhausted in the car.
They just see me smiling when I get there because I'm so happy to see them, I've been lonely to see them.
So they assume I'm not that sick after all... whereas I'm fighting to get quality of life too.
Trust me Fibro and chronic fatigue are trying to suck me dry.
