About Stress, Emotions, and Mindset

When dealing with difficult-to-treat illnesses such as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia (FM), environmental sensitivities (ES), long COVID, and chronic pain, it's important to remember that you are not alone.

  • It's completely normal to feel overwhelmed at times, but there are many resources available to help you navigate through it.
  • Remember, adverse emotions are not inevitable, and maintaining a sense of calm and hopefulness is associated with better health outcomes.

  • Living with these conditions can evoke strong emotions, which can evolve into depression and anxiety.
  • Fortunately, there are standard treatments like psychotherapy and medications that work well.

  • It's unfortunate that many people with chronic, complex conditions have been misdiagnosed as having a mental disorder when they did not.
  • However, it's not that hard to distinguish between the two—the resources on this page will help.

  • If you find yourself struggling and losing hope, please don't hesitate to seek professional help and reach out for support.
  • Rates of suicide are higher in those with conditions like ME or CFS—up to six times higher, in fact. But with the right help and support, you can overcome these challenges.

Remember, getting the support you need can make a significant difference in your overall well-being. You're not alone on this journey, and there are resources available to help you navigate through it.
