“Adaptive Copers”

I just discovered a new name: Adaptive Copers (see Fischer et al in library).  These are what doctors call people with fibromyalgia who essentially don’t succumb to the disease.  They have a lower pain intensity, they function in life, and they are not as affected by mental disorders (e.g. major depression).  I have decided to align myself to this select group of patients.

I’ve always said, I have no choice.  I can’t stay home, collect disability, not get out of bed in the morning.  I am my own support system at home.  I have to bring home a paycheck – who else is going to pay for the kitty litter?
