    A friend of mine sent me these links.

    Disability info web site: http://www.cfids-me.org/disinissues/. Is is the companion site for a Yahoo group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Disinissues/

    A web page has several links on it. The first is a handbook for people with CFS regarding how to apply to disability. Under that are links to the same handbook but broken into chapters: http://www.masscfids.org/publications/disability_handbook/

    And their main page: http://www.masscfids.org/

    Social Security Web site regarding providing medical evidence: CFS: http://www.ssa.gov/disability/professionals/cfs-pub063.htm

    A page at the Social Security Web site that reports on the 1999 CFS ruling. I don't know if this recently changed: http://www.ssa.gov/OP_Home/rulings/di/01/SSR99-02-di-01.html

    And their main page: http://www.ssa.gov/disability/

    Legal issues: http://cfids.org/resources/legal-issues.asp

    Another ruling. I don't know if this has changed: http://www.cfs-news.org/socsec7.txt

    I love all these web sites...I just keep saving them in my favorites and wait until I have a fog free few moments when I can actually understand it.

    Thanks for sharing
