Juice plus Breakfast Blast 1 serving all fruit punch to fill line ( we used pink lemonade) Blend 1-2 minutes and serve This was the best smoothie ever .. I had to make myself one to help me with that extra push for the day My motto is to look better than I feel! Dealing with Fibromyalgia and chronic pain is sometimes very difficult. It's often difficult to press through the pain as well as for others around you to understand as there are no visible signs that you are sick. Jeremiah 29 :11 God had not forgotten you! Much Love Nora

Behavioral Therapy Group As a therapist, I am seeing more of my patients that are dealing with chronic pain, fatigue & Fibromyalgia and many sessions get stuck on how to cope as they are in crisis mode. I have made a proposal to my clinic on starting this new plan to better serve this population by offering an 8 week intensive program. I would like your feedback. Please see below… Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Fibromyalgia/Chronic Pain/FatigueFocus Group Length: 8 wks 1 hr sessions (Tentatively) may need 1.5 hrs Background Information CBT increases patients’ belief in their ability to manage their condition, and it helps them change pessimistic thoughts and negative feelings regarding symptoms like pain, fatigue, and sleep problems. “Through CBT, fibromyalgia patients learn techniques that help them to manage their symptoms better and develop a different attitude towards pain — more of acceptance and less catastrophizing,” Cognitive Therapy Behavior means thinking about changes that can improve your life. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy will never take the place of a solid diagnosis and medication, but it can help you examine your life to identify problem areas where you can exert control. Objective To provide a supportive learning environment for Individuals to react differently to physical and emotional stress, and identify daily habits that may increase negative responses in the body to elevate pain. To assist the individual(s) to learn tools to improve his or her overall ability to cope and function better on a daily basis.
