Stagefrightgirl, check out an old thread on here called "what is Fibro" and it was written by a doctor if I'm not badly mistaken, it's been a while. I hope this helps you out. 🤗

Don't forget the Spoon Theory and the Letter To Normals. There's lots of stuff online as well.
It's about finding something that they might understand but it'd very hard to get someone who doesn't know anything about it at all to even begin to comprehend a chronic illness.
Good luck xx
