Many people value having a social life and good relationships with friends and family but when you live with fibromyalgia, spending time with people is often easier said than done.

You might make plans with a friend and then on the day of, your body stops cooperating with you. You might be really tired or in way too much pain, so you have to cancel your plans. Explaining this to someone else can be difficult though. How can someone else understand what not being able to hang out truly means in your situation?

That’s why we turned to our Mighty community. We wanted to find out what “I can’t hang out” actually means to someone who lives with fibromyalgia.

I’m also dealing with digestive issues that make dealing with bathrooms difficult. I don’t have it in me to get ready and go anywhere. I skipped a massage appointment; it was too much for me. I love you, dearly and ask you to keep trying, asking and understanding. Hopefully, we can get together on a less rotten day for me.” – Krista I.
