Phoenix Rising Founder
The Spanish version of "The Patient's Guide to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and
Fibromyalgia" is now available free online at the website of the CFIDS &
Fibromyalgia Self-Help Program: www.cfidsselfhelp.org/library/type/books . The
book is the text for the introductory self-management course, one of three
self-help classes offered by the program.

A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the program has conducted more than 250 self-help classes since 1998, most offered over the internet. In addition, its introductory course is offered in several locations in Australia and this year
was given by Dr. Charles Lapp in Charlotte.

The program's website contains information about the program's three self-help
courses, plus more than 150 articles on topics such as coping strategies, pacing
and support. In addition, there are many patient success stories and information
for family and friends.
