Everyone with CFS and FM is different. The treatment plan you create should be your plan, one that fits your unique circumstances. A good starting point is to understand your individual situation, which you can do by completing the brief exercises in this section.
Print out the My Situation worksheet and write your answers on it as you do the exercises in the next four pages.
When the worksheet is complete, you will:
- Have an idea of the severity of your CFS/FM and how you compare to others
- Be aware of medical conditions beyond CFS/FM that may explain some of your symptoms
- Identify problems created by CFS/FM and what you are already doing to cope with them
- Understand your unique set of resources and challenges
