Comment:
With Fibro and CFS I tend to come home after a long day of work and sit in my chair the rest of the night. I no longer go out, work in my yard, grocery shop, meet friends as I am so tired. I started taking Ribose about 4 weeks ago and have been given the nickname "zippy" since that time. I am cooking, cleaning, doing laundry and even getting on the treadmill for 45 minutes each day.
