Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
February 20, 2011 by staff
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Researchers in Britain have found that chronic fatigue syndrome is something that is best taken with a combination of behavioral therapy and exercise. Researchers in Britain studied patients with chronic fatigue syndrome, a disease that affects many around the world. The researchers found are that a combination therapy may be the best treatment option to help take on this disease. This combination therapy includes both exercise and cognitive behavioral therapy.
The study author, Dr. Peter D. White of the London School of Medicine showed the benefits of these two treatments, cognitive-behavioral therapy and exercise. Fight against fatigue (http://www.fightingfatigue.org), an online journal and Web site resources for chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, interstitial cystitis and other chronic diseases, is celebrating its 5th anniversary this year. Robinson wanted to do something special this year to celebrate the 5th anniversary of its website and in honor, she established the fight against fatigue “Fighting Back Challenge (http://www.fightingfatigue.org/fbchallenge). Sandy said: “There is this stigma of chronic disease patients that we are lazy, have no hopes, dreams or goals in life and just focus on being sick and it is such a misunderstanding. There are many of us who are here to survive and prosper; try to improve our lives and the lives of those around us. Many of us are mothers, wives, fathers, husbands, businessmen, businesspeople, artists, writers – we come from all walks of life. I wanted to do something to show how strong and amazing all these people. We’re not just a disease. We are so much more than that. ”
Robinson said, “I want to share the stories of chronically ill how we survive and overcome the obstacles, despite the limitations that we face on a daily basis. We all have an important story to tell and no achievement is too small! ”
Sandy Robinson, founder and creative website, launched the Fight against Fatigue.org site as an outlet to deal with her own chronic diseases. Sandy has suffered with CFS for over 20 years and was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and interstitial cystitis in 2003.
According to Robinson, “When I started the blog to fight against fatigue, my health was the worst he has ever been. I was no longer able to work, I was bedridden most of the time because of debilitating fatigue CSA and the excruciating pain of fibromyalgia and IC disease were unbearable. I spent most of my days and nights in the fog of fatigue terrible that no amount of sleep could get rid of pain and am not even begin to touch the severity of the pain I was in. One day I worked, moving up the career ladder and the next day, I could not move or get out of bed. I finally pushed my body to where it had completely stopped. ”
Finally, in 2008, Robinson had improved her health enough that she could return to work part time and was gradually able to regain some control over her health, but diseases are always there and always will be unless a cure is found. “I know every day that I have CFS, fibromyalgia and IC disease, but I have to try to continue to live as best I can. I have a son who deserves the best mother; he may have and is still my motivation to improve my health. I refuse to let this disease beat me and I will not give up and die – I want to live and somehow, some way, I’ll get there. It is not easy and I have many, many setbacks with my health. But I never stop trying and I think that’s the important thing. We can not abandon us and we will never give up hope, “exclaimed Robinson.
