July’s Letter of the Month was written by Myrna Goldstein. Myrna wins a $100 gift certificate for ProHealth supplements.

A Day At A Time

I was officially diagnosed with CFS and Fibromyalgia in 1992, although I believe I have had some form of it all my life… After all these years and some horrific times, what has worked best for me is:
n Not seeing myself as a sick person.
n Learning to say I am fine if things aren't too bad.
n Acknowledging the exhaustion or pain by lying down.
n Not overdoing it when I have days that I feel stronger.
n Praying, being grateful and realizing how blessed I am.

I…do the best that I can a day at a time, talking little about my aches and pains unless it is unbearable. Then I might take a pain killer or muscle relaxer. I also find that the weather plays a big part. – Myrna
