Most people believe that you can’t be in pain or discomfort if you managed to dress nicely and did your hair.
Just because I am laughing and joking around with my friends does not mean that I am well. Just because I am sick does not mean that I cannot be happy.
People with chronic pain or fibromyalgia do things at pain levels others wouldn’t even consider moving at. We do it because, if we don’t, we wouldn’t have a life. This does not mean that we’re having a good day. It just means that we managed to be stronger for that part of the day.
