I don't even understand the concept of accepting it! My mom has always told me that I need to accept this. She has had FMS/CFS for 40 + years. She said that does not mean you don't try to get better, that you don't try to learn about things that might help you but you are wasting your energy not accepting this. I have no clue how to do that. It's like there is a concrete barrier around my brain for that. I don't know what it means. After dealing with this for 16 years maybe I will never accept it but since my mom seems to have a better attitude, handle things better, etc. I would like to try. If anyone has words of wisdom on this subject, I would like to hear it. Sometimes just one person's way of saying something can cause a light bulb to go on. I would appreciate you trying to help me understand this.
