Simple tips borrowed from: www.grammarbook.com
Reflexive pronouns - myself, himself, herself, itself, themselves, ourselves, yourself, yourselves- should be used only when they refer back to another word in the sentence.
I worked myself to the bone.
My brother and myself did it.
The word myself does not refer back to another word.
My brother and I did it.
Please give it to John or myself.
Please give it to John or me.
Are there any remaining grammar rules that still confuse you? What? Split Infinitives? I guess you'll need to come back on Monday! :)
