International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Like many of you, I have trouble reading books because of the onset of brain fog, fatigue, pain, tremors, etc...

    Because of this, I'm forced to do audiobooks, and I can only read about 10-15 pages a day at maximum.

    Just wondering if anyone has figured out a way to be able to concentrate more on reading?

    I'd like to be able to read an 800 page book with it taking me an entire year.

    Anyone have any ideas of treatments I could pursue?

    thanks,
    Womble

    Wow, no responses in a month?

    Too much brain fog, everyone? :)

    Taking breaths in slower and for longer than your normal breathing pattern for 10-15 minutes. Keep a consistent rhythm and let the air relax out of your nostrils without forcing the exhale.

    Has helped me improve my concentration, thinking ability, comprehension and memory recall. This is partly because I was overbreathing/hyperventilating, but still I believe it will be helpful for you.
