A new study reveals that fibromyalgia has a negative impact on relationships and it does for a large percentage of those with the disease. Half of respondents to the study said that fibromyalgia had contributed to damage to a marriage or other serious relationship or contributed to a break up.
Many of us have seen the effect first hand that fibromyalgia can have on relations. After all, illness is hard for anyone and it contributes to a lot of other problems such as money and inability to handle responsibilities. It also hard when others do not accept your illness because there are no real tests to prove that the disease actually exists.
What effect has fibromyalgia had on your relationships? Has time helped to rebuild your relationships or have many ended as a result? What helps you get through the breakdown of a relationship due to fibromyalgia?
