I have tried really hard this year to raise awareness, I have 126 "friends" on facebook, a handful on twitter. I asked who cared about FMS, emotionally blackmailing people into noticing upset me. Only 14 people anwsered to the question and the quiz, none of them family. So where am I going wrong? Is it because I am an average jo? Is it because I go on about it all the time? Is it because no one cares about sick people, or understands? Is it because it's not relavent to them?
People prefer commenting on things they can identify with, and being ill or having FMS may not be one of those things. A "friend" asked me what FMS was......... how can a person who knows me, not know about fms? It upset me because I spend time asking "How are you?" How are your family?" To realise what's the point in having selfish people around who want you to reply to their commentry but will not care about replying to yours.
