I'm feeling so fed up with some people in my life at the moment, I was supposed to be going out with a friend today but when I was sat doing my university work this morning I fell asleep writing my notes and woke up about 12.15 pm. So I told the friend that I can't make it because I don't feel well enough. She has now gone in a huff with me and hasn't replied to my last message. This person works in the care services and said she knows about fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue but gets really annoyed when I have to cancel at short notice and this is really upsetting me and making me feel worse.

Dear Sickofpain,

Thank you for your message and I'm sorry to hear that you're feeling poorly and about the trouble you had with your friend.  I've tagged a few fellow members to see if they have any experiences to share about their condition and being misunderstood by friends and family.

Hello All, I hope you don't mind you tagging you. Please feel free to share your experiences which could really help other community members going through the same thing.

A true friend from the heart would understand immediately.  Perhaps she is having a difficult day ?  She will cool off and text you soon.  That’s what friends are like.  
Very well done you for doing any university studying.  Keep up the great work.

Take care
