Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Using Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive-behavioral therapy teaches you how to change your thinking and fears. It can help you learn to think accurately about your situation instead of letting fear guide your feelings and your behavior. This type of therapy is good news for people who have chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Studies show that this type of therapy can help you feel better.1
