SYNOPSIS
A Practical Guide to Living with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Post Viral Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.  World-wide distribution. ISBN 0-9525930-4-1.
Third edition.  Written by Dr Michael Midgley.  Published by Overton Studios Trust.

Written by a physician and fellow sufferer.  A book about how to love and care for your body at a physical level.  There is a chapter on Mind/Spirit aspects and another written by his carer.

Dr. Midgley has lived with ME for over 40 years. He developed a 'therapeutic thinking' strategy for the 'body-management' and 'mind-management' of ME and has now brought his condition thoroughly under control. He is thus in a unique position to help others, being both a long-term sufferer and a physician.

In his book, he shares his experiences with the reader and offers encouragement and inspiration. He provides practical dietary and complementary medical suggestions for controlling ME, based on his personal experiences. The book also deals briefly with the mind and spirit aspects of this trying and debilitating illness. It will help many people with ME to improve the quality of their lives. It will also enable their family and friends to reach a deeper level of understanding, both of the disease itself and of the patient.
