For chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia patients that celebrate Christmas, the 26th of December should be a day of rest!
Christmas visitors may still be snoring in your house and eating all your food, doing all sorts of annoying things that the holidays just seem to bring out in little “cheery elves” this time of year. But that does’t mean you have to be at their beck and call.
Set aside some time for yourself today. Enjoy a cup of tea in a quiet room. Maybe pop into a local spa for a massage. Tap a nap with strict orders not to disturb you, not even for their 500th viewing of A Christmas Story.
Taking time for yourself will help prevent fibro flares, fatigue, and agitation. If everyone wants the remaining holiday to run smoothly, then it’s best that they give you some quiet time.
