We now know that approaching healing from ME CFS from a "pushing" motivation can make everything worse, so willpower for recovery in ME CFS and Fibromyalgia needs a new meaning. Pushing to work harder and do more will not work for recovering from these illnesses, but we may need determination in other ways to find acceptance and allow ourselves to rest and take steps to get into a healing state. Willpower on the recovery path is doing LESS, to stop doing something you want to do when what you need to do is stop and rest.
