Getting through Christmas with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Christmas treeThe Last Push to Get Through Christmas with Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

By Adrienne Dellwo, Guide
December 17, 2012

The holiday season can wear on just about anyone, and that goes triple for those of us with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.

As we enter the last week before Christmas, it's important to take stock of where you are, both in terms of how much you have left to do and in terms of how you're feeling.

If you haven't yet, make a list of everything you feel like you "have" to do in the next week, and then, with how you're feeling, look at whether you can realistically get it all done.

No? OK, then it's time to prioritize - what absolutely, positively must happen? What can go by the wayside without the whole season imploding? What tasks can you delegate or ask for help with?

For help with this process, read The Holiday Survival Guide. It's written as a months-long process of avoiding a last-minute crunch, but it'll help you out in a pinch, too.

Here are some other resources that can help you:

How are you doing? Is your to-so list overwhelming or have you found ways to keep it managable? What helps you get through the holiday season? Leave your comments here!
