You would use 'I'. In order to use the reflexive pronoun 'myself', you need to have the antecedent of the pronoun in the sentence as well.


Present were Jim, Tim, and I.


I went to the meeting, and Jim and Tim were there, along with myself.

This is not a very good sentence, but it illustrates the use of 'myself' with its antecedent 'I'.
