The basics of being nice to yourself seem to be lost when you suffer from chronic pain and fatigue.
This is a shame because learning how to experience joy again—or perhaps even for the first time ever—proves vital to the care of Fibromyalgia/CFS.
“Studies indicate that not only are ME/CFS and FM two of the most difficult illnesses to have, but that the stress response systems are dysregulated in both to boot. In fact, it appears that the stress response in these diseases never shuts off; that it’s present even during sleep. That suggests that learning how to bypass those stress responses, and experience some joy might be good both physically and for one’s peace of mind.”
