I believe that my mother fakes her fibro. But that's just my opinion based on the fact that she is an addict and a drug seeker.

I was diagnosed with fibro as a kid because I told the doctor that my hands were stiff. My hands were stiff because I was such a nutcase, I would hit walls. Of course they're going to be stiff.

I'm pretty sure that my mom's fibro is based on the amazing array of narcotics doctors were prepared to put me on at the time I was diagnosed, which was in 7th grade. We had to talk the doctor out of prescribing me vicodin, and he talked us into taking home a ton of muscle relaxants. So that was my fun supply for the rest of middle school.
