To the ladies of “Face the Truth”:
I usually watch your show every weekday. I get to do this because I have chronic illnesses that keep me from having a traditional career/job. Pain and other symptoms keep me from living the once active life I used to have. When I heard the subject of a show earlier this month, I was immediately curious about how you were going to handle a mother accusing her daughter of lying about her chronic invisible illness. I had never seen anything from your show that made me worry about your approach, so I was hopeful you would handle the chronic illness aspect in a way that would raise awareness for fibromyalgia and other invisible illnesses.
I was disappointed. More than disappointed, I was rather disheartened, and at times heartbroken, to see how you were treating this girl.
