Since a lot of us also have Fibromyalgia, which may be a subset of CFS/ME, the folloing URL has a lot of good information.There are quite a few tabs that have even more information. I was surprised that the authos wrote that FM is not a mental health condition. I sent quotes from the site to a few members in my family who think I only have depression. They're coming around the longer I am ill. I guess that in a way is good and bad news. This site makes me more hopeful that there will be day (when,when when?) the same thing can be said about me/cfs. (my bold) http://www.fmcpaware.org/aboutfibromyalgia Barb C.:>) To the mods. I was not sure where to post this information. Move as needed. Thanks!!
