    My 15 year old daughter got diagnosed after 10 months of doctors' visits with CFS. We are looking for a support group for teenagers. Are there any out there?

    I don't want to be the barer of bad news but at least in my area it's hard enough to find ANY support groups. Your best bet would be asking whichever doctor diagnosed her for resources and if he falls through contact your local hospitals to see if they run support groups. Good Luck!

    Try [edited to remove URL per rules]

    Site is specifically for kids and adolescents with FM/CFS.

    Also UK has some support resources for kids. You can google "youth" and "ME".

    Finally, there are a couple people and their children here who have FM/CFS.

    Try:

    1. Google 'CFIDS' and 'association'. Look until Youth on L hand column.

    2. Google 'David' and 'Bell' and 'CFS'

    3. Google 'pediatric' and 'CFS' and 'network'

    Hope this helps.
