    I have a question to ask for those who are familiar with the Pacific NW.

    I had a dear friend mostly housebound with M.E who is considering moving to Portland OR and would appreciate if anyone could offer some information.
    She's heard they have good services for disabled like transportation, are progressive with medical coverage and a good place to live.

    Does anyone live there that can recommend good areas, docs etc? She really needs to be in a place where she can get some help.

    thanks

    I am in the PNW. I hope your friend has plenty of $ because housing in Portland has become much more expensive. Seattle homes and rents are even more expensive.


    In terms of ME/CFS care I am unaware of any specialists in the PNW. I myself travel to California to see an ME/CFS specialist. Even doctors I've seen in Seattle at the best hospitals/university teaching hospitals know little or nothing about ME/CFS.
