... that I am in pain most days is "we are women, mothers, and wives, our job is to push through the pain and take care of everyone else and get things done". After having fibro for 14 years, the pain has gotten progressively worse, am on Cymbalta and I can at least get off the couch and get some stuff accomplished everyday but the hubby and his mom don't understand why I can't get more done... HELP, very frustrated need advice
