Do you ever feel resistant and overwhelmed in response to some everyday needs or tasks such as:
- Taking a rest break when you know your body needs it?
- Refilling your pills or charting your progress as you are trying to get better?
- Maybe even simple tasks such as brushing your teeth or getting ready for bed?
Part of it is that the flu-like symptoms and brain fog of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) or Fibromyalgia (FM) make any seemingly easy task more difficult. Another part of it—the part I want to offer some help for in this article—is that the brains of people with ME/CFS or FM work differently from those of healthy people.
Let me first share with you how scientific findings in ME/CFS and FM explain why we feel easily listless and overwhelmed. Then, in the next section, I will share with you a way of working around your brain handicaps. This has worked for me and others.
