Hi Sickntired :lol:
First, let me welcome you to our forum. I am sorry that you had to deal with unprofessional doctors. Especially the one who claimed that Fibromyalgia is a "Crazy Woman's Disease". I think that I would report that doctor because that is a direct insult on so many levels!
Many doctors dismiss us by telling us that our symptoms are all in our heads. This, too, is a direct insult. It generally comes from doctors who know little to nothing about either illness and would rather dismiss us than try to find a way to help us.
You have to become your own advocate for your health care. Educate yourself about Lupus and Fibromyalgia, learn their symptoms, their medications, their treatments etc. Keep track of how they affect you! In doing so, you will be able to stand up for yourself the next time a doctor makes a dismissive statement to you. Also, you will be able to make informed decisions about your health care WITH your doctor!
You may also come to us with your questions and concerns, we will do everything that we can to help you! You are not alone.
Peace and Blessings
Look For The Good and Praise It!
