    Has anyone taken this online course? I have read Bruce Campbell's articles and they seem to make a lot of sense. Would very much like to know more about this course.
    Thanks so very much.

    I took this course last year. You get a book and read a chapter or so every week, then answer some questions from the group leader that are e-mailed to all the members of your class (about 15 if I remember right).

    The book has lots of useful info on pacing, the energy envelope, and setting realistic short term and longer term goals, and lots of other stuff like mental health and common situations people have to deal with when they have CFS/FM.

    It is helpful to hear from others with similar health problems and how they cope. I have CFS, but am much better now and work part-time.
