Apparently these were the top 10 suggestions, made by 600 fibro sufferers, in no particular order except the first three listed:
"The positive coping strategy reported most frequently by the respondents was talking to a friend or family member (62.4%).
Praying ranked second with 60.2% of respondents using this technique.
Exercise was reported by 59.4%, which makes it the
third most popular strategy."
