Vera wasn’t aware that scary emotions like repressed anger, sadness caused her body pain. Fibromyalgia made it hard for 46-year-old Vera to get her legs out of bed in the morning. As she moved toward the bathroom the pangs of pain moved to her hands, head, and neck. It brought tears to her eyes. It made her angry to think that Kurt hadn’t even thought of organizing things around the house to make life a little easier for her. Vera remembered the arguments about accompanying her on doctors’ appointments and got even angrier.
