I was diagnosed with fibro over a year ago and I'm learning to judge my limits better, but I still push myself too much at times. I am fortunate to have a very supportive family, including my 15 year old daughter. I don't expect her to understand it completely by any means, but any time I groan as I stand up or grimace from moving, she'll ask me if I'm okay. I fight the urge every time to ask her if the grass is orange. Am I being oversensitive in wanting her to stop asking if I'm okay? Honestly, I'm never truly okay but I also don't want her to fully realize how much pain I deal with every day of my life now. I also have a 10 year old son that visits and he knows I have limits now, but I feel like he doesn't need to understand the details of my illness. Is it possible to balance my children's innocence with an understanding of what this chronic illness is and the effect it has on everyday functioning?
