There is hope for winning the battle against Fibromyalgia/CFS. Rebecca Richmond has developed a 'go to' reference for helping those suffering from either or both of these debilitating syndromes in My Guide: Manage Fibromyalgia/CFS. As Rebecca lays out the causes and symptoms of both syndromes, one begins to wonder if there is any way to survive so much pain. Her personal story shows how the syndrome slowly continued to diminish not only her physical capabilities, but also her hope. And then she turned a corner. This book is about the programs and activities that she undertook in order to get a handle on her condition and turn her life around. Within its pages are programs and therapies that begin with strengthening one’s resolve to beat this condition. She then lays out diet, exercise, and psychological control of one’s emotions and stress, including maintaining a high sense of self-esteem.
My Guide: Manage Fibromyalgia/CFS begins with the tragic story of Rebecca Richmond’s weakening by the pain and psychologically draining onset of Fibromyalgia/CFS, but it ends as a story of victory. Rebecca lays out the battle plan in clear and concise language that is easy to understand and easy to follow. Helping to fix one’s attitude in a positive determination to beat this condition is a major part of the program that Rebecca has laid out and she has done an excellent job of instilling that confidence and determination in the pages of this book. Each step in her battle is clearly illustrated by her own personal experience and lends a high degree of credibility and a point of critical reference to the reader. Knowledgeable, practical and encouraging, My Guide: Manage Fibromyalgia/CFS is a critical guide for those who are suffering from either one or both of these syndromes and a battle plan to overcome them.
