I agree, how do you get family and friends to understand? I've lost lots of friends and family who say "I'm crazy, I'm making it up." " you look fine, you just don't want to work".

@devonna I have fibro and ostarithis ( spelling ) right now I have been out of work for the last 3 days and in such a fog I can't think straight. You are so right no one understands about this illness they all say you look fine . It is very stressful that is for sure. My job is very stressful. I have no support system. Thanks for letting me vent .
I have RA and FMS and to many other symptoms to go through. But, I found I have a grain intolerance. I removed gluten and stay away from grains. I try to eat little sugar and refined foods. I take vitamin D in large doses more than any of you are reporting taking, I also take Omegas, B, and calcium. I am no longer on any type of medication. I occasionally get a flare up but usually it happens after I eat out. I also get at least 7 hours of sleep a night. I hope this helps someone. I will also try Epsom salts in my bath next flair up. Thanks.
