Try not to let what your mother thinks bother you. Just as you have no idea what fibromyalgia feels like, she also has no idea what you are going through. I have candida, adrenal fatigue, and hypo-thyroid. I had a doctor tell me that candida and adrenal fatigue dont exist and nothing is wrong with my thyroid although Im having the exact same symptoms as I was when my labs showed I had low thyroid. She told me I should see a pyschiatrist and ask for anti-depressants. I’ve heard “its all in my head a few times from doctors”. Yeah, I can mentally make myself have digestive symptoms of having a candida overgrowth.
You know you are not well and are taking steps to get better. Thats really all you can do. Once you stop worrying about what people think the faster you will start seeing results.
