  1. Actually, exercise is one of the worst things you can do to yourself if you have CFS/ME. It is dangerous, even life-threatening. Many people are now in wheelchair (or completely paralyzed and tube-fed) because they pursued aerobic exercise when their bodies told them not to.

    Fortunately, CFS/ME can be effectively treated in most cases. Rest and stress reduction are the best therapies, but medications can help too. For example, my book “Reviving the Broken Marionette: Treatments for CFS/ME and Fibromyalgia” lists over 250 medications that can be used to treat these illnesses.

    Without medication I, too, would be in wheelchair. One of my best friends is. She also has severe vision impairment caused by CFS/ME. She can barely take a few steps and if she exerts herself too much, she will be bedbound for days or weeks and cannot even eat without help. Luckily she’s finally able to try proper medications.
