While trying to promote the www.sockit2mecfs.org project internationally I realized how little I know about the situation in foreign countries. Since most of our members are from the USA, UK or Canada the situation in these countries are often discussed here. Now I would like to know what the CFS situation in other countries is. Please post here and tell us what it is like to have CFS in other countries. Doctors, diagnosis, health insurance and recognition of the illness would be interesting to know. When you zoom in on Western Europe in the international CFS map it looks like it is non- existent in France which I find very unlikely since all the surrounding countries have it. http://xmrv.me.uk/me-cfs-global-map.php It just makes me wonder what is going on there. I am sure they all have computers and many can speak english, yet no one put themselves on the map.
