Have seen a post on a support type group online, by a fibromyalgia sufferer advocating exercise and running. She’s really happy she’s completed a half marathon, despite having fibro for almost 3 years.
I want to be happy for her and believe me there are a fair few “congratulations” and “you’re so inspirational” posts. But I’m annoyed.
I’m annoyed that
1) a fellow fibro sufferer is bashing us lazy fibro sufferers ( indirectly )
2) how come no one has asked, how can someone who really has fibromyalgia be running AT ALL.
3) if exercise helped fibromyalgia, how come I got it? I used to exercise regularly, ate healthily and was a positive person. So if exercise helps how come it didn’t prevent me from ghosting away
Posts like hers make me angry.
Am I the only one?
Am I being really mean?
