Lately all I've been doing is crying.. my sisters just keep going on and on about the same thing (their partners and their partners families constantly), and my parents would rather be on their phone and ignore me when I try to have a conversation with them or my mam will constantly be on the phone to my sisters for hours and it's really starting to get me down I'm crying constantly over that, over the pain I'm in... I don't want to sound like a drama queen but I think I really need someone to talk to and I know I can't talk to my family about it..

Is it just me?

Please say it's not..

I'm sorry you're going through this CoCo17. I don't have anyone to talk about it either. My friends and family don't understand. My sister has fibro now and she thinks I exaggerate. Wait till she gets worse. Anyway you are not alone.

Most people don't understand so I don't talk to anyone really about it and try to "fake" my way through everything. I broke down last week just frustrated with myself that I cannot physically do much. It happens. I find good support here though. I'm glad you're here. People here understand, listen and really do care. You're not alone.

I totally understand I'm constantly in pain and doctors dont know what it is still after r years of daily headaches.. My family use to be on my side now they think im making it up or ask why I'm still sick... So ya no one other than people like us understand.

I am sorry that you are going through this. It's not just you, both of my parents are always into the tv. You can message me to talk.
