What to Do If Your Family Member or Friend has Fibromyalgia

When one has fibromyalgia, it takes a toll on both the patient and the family and friends of the affected. After being diagnosed with fibromyalgia from fibromyalgia doctors, it would take a while to accept the fact. In this article we will talk about how family members, significant others and friends can support a fibromyalgia patient and help him or her lead a better life.



It is understandable that a person would act differently and even negatively when he is suffering from diseases like fibromyalgia, exhaustion, pain and depression. So, as a close person of the patient, it is very important that you don't expect too much from him. This wouldn't exert too much stress on the patient and allow you to avoid being disappointed too.

For starters, you have to accept the fact that the patient should not be held responsibility for the ailment he is currently suffering through.

Offer to help him clean his clothes, his place and a helping hand whenever you can.

If you are the fibromyalgia patient, remember not to give up on hope and not blame yourself for this condition. Never blame yourself when you are unable to do what you could have done easily before you were diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Never over stress yourself just to prove a point. This will only add fuel to the fire and make things worse.

Of course, you can carry on your daily life as usual. Don't be afraid to ask your closed ones to help you do your daily chores and activities.

By doing so, you can focus more on treating your fibromyalgia. Don't be independent just to prove a point.

Make sure you maintain communication with your family members at all times. As a family member, you must never turn your back on your family members that are currently suffering or make them a victim. On the other hand, the patient should aim to take care of himself in terms of the diet, physique, health and exercise. It is very important you take some responsibility for your own health and wellbeing as well.

It is no surprise that no one likes to live with a suffering and painful ailment like fibromyalgia. However, in the presence of a patient, be considerate. Make sure you consult a doctor and be well educated about your condition. Don't raise too much hope for a cure for your ailment. Always keep up with the latest information and news on the treatments of your condition because you never know when the medical community will come up with a fibromyalgia cure.
