How can I deal with all the things I need to get done?

Fibro and guilt

Most people who get fibromyalgia tend to be overachievers – usually with Type-A personalities. This means we have set impossibly high standards for ourselves – standards that are difficult to achieve when you are fatigued and in pain. This often leads us to feel guilty when things that we were accustomed to doing aren't getting done. Remember – you can only be guilty of things done deliberately. You cannot feel guilty about getting fibro and thus acquiring new limitations. That is not your fault.
