Hope and Help for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia is designed to educate patients suffering from CFS/FM about their illnesses and to teach them coping skills that will improve their quality of life. And while the good news is that people who suffer from CFS/FM aren''t dying, the bad news is that it''s going to take a lot of time and effort to get better since there is no one specific treatment that works for everyone.

Some of the issues covered are:

  • Causes of CFS/FM and common psychological consequences, including anxiety and depression
  • The role of stress and how to manage it
  • The connection between the mind and the body in coping with CFS/FM
