I told my family doctor. She told me that I didn’t have fibromyalgia: (a) I didn’t have the “right personality” for it, because I didn’t have “an investment in being sick,” and (b) it didn’t really matter anyway, because there was no test or established treatment for fibromyalgia, so why would a diagnosis be of any use?
