    Hello,

    I am checking to see if any members live in New York and if you know of any FM/CFS support groups?

    I would like to join up and get some personal - and give - support.

    Thanks

    hi Shakes
    I was looking for FM groups, I work in NYC and haven't found any support groups for FM in NYC.
    I think are some mixed CFS/FM groups in Westchester area and Long Island.
    I dont have the info, you can Google CFS/FM support NYS and a list should come up

    Hi,

    I an a New Yorker with CFIDS. Had it for over 6 years now. I am unaware of any support groups. However, I know another New Yorker with CFIDS and he's a great guy. WHat I have been told is that to start a support group one usually needs a social worker at the helm. Not sure about the rest or any of the formal procedures. But hopefully it's food for thought if you are interested in starting a support group.
