Author’s Message to you:
I hope my journey has inspired you and given you hope that you, too, can recover. Please
remember these four things as they will help you manage your fibromyalgia/CFS:
– your unconscious mind is incredibly powerful
– you have the key within you to unlock its power
– many things have been thought impossible until someone did it, and
– life is a journey, so begin with deciding on your destination.
Remember: I am just an ordinary person like you. I believe you can recover – do you?
Fibromyalgia is a distressing illness that affects millions of people around the world.
Rebecca suffered for seven years before she developed a programme of various mind–body techniques that enabled her to overcome her symptoms. She then used these same skills to aid her recovery from MRSA, a malignant melanoma and surgery to remove a pancreatic tumour. She now enjoys good health and lives a full and active life.
The author believes the key to her healing was understanding how to interrupt the pain signal to the brain, overcome the traumas from her past and finally learn to relax so her brain and body stopped triggering the ‘fight or flight response’.
In her book, Rebecca shares her story and provides detailed descriptions of the techniques she used to overcome her symptoms, using a combination of practices and exercises, which you can follow so that you, too, can overcome this debilitating condition. Through these techniques, she has been able to enhance the way she thinks and improve every aspect of her life – though her weaknesses remain chocolate, ice cream and curry!

Excerpt from Manage Fibromyalgia/CFS
Chapter Eleven – Goal-setting for the Future You Desire
“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. People who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them.
George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
It never ceases to amaze me how few people bother to set goals in their lives. It is almost as if they leave their future in the hands of fate and spend their lives living like an abandoned boat bobbing around on the ocean, going where the tides take it. Some people
even spend more time deciding what to buy from the supermarket than they do thinking about what they really want from life and then wonder why they are unhappy.
Don’t misunderstand me: I know there are unexpected events that happen – both good and bad. But generally I feel it is important to have a plan. After all, how can we get to our destination if we don’t know where we want to get to? It might be enjoyable to go on the occasional mystery tour for our holidays, but generally, we all want to know where we are going to be spending our holidays.
Visualising the Outcome You Want Trains Your Brain it has been proven that our brains cannot tell the difference between something we actually experience and something we imagine vividly. Just like a sports person who visualises success, you will improve your chances of recovery by spending time visualising yourself recovered. Mentally going over possible situations that may arise and imagining your strategies can help you become more relaxed and confident of your recovery process.
Human beings are not suited to being solitary animals and we all need to feel a connection with or be loved by others to be truly happy. As we grow into adulthood, the need to achieve that connection outside the home becomes increasingly important.
Forming appropriate and healthy relationships is vital to long-term happiness.”
