Hmmm...the over-achieving thing...probably true. Although I think that it's a fact that more women have FM/CFS than men. Could it be that it's because we are the primary caregivers, etc.?
As far as the vitamins/etc...yes, it does take a long time for you to be able to tell a difference. I tend to feel better when I'm eating healthier, but it's another thing that takes time for you to notice. We have so much icky stuff inside us that it takes a long time to rid our systems of it. But once you do, you feel so great!
Gee...I REALLY need to do another juice fast...
