    Hi All,

    I found this great website about educating our doctors on CFS. I found the link on Dr. Lapp's website. He was a co-author.

    Check it out. It even goes into detail about how applying for disability can be traumatic for us.

    And, if you click on Health Care Professionals Tools and Resources, then Assessment Tools, you will find a list of screening tools that they use to assess disability.

    Including Dr. Bell's CFS Disability Scale and Dr. Lapp's Subjective Funtional Capacity Assessment Tool.

    Hugs ... marcia

    Marcia, what a great site!

    I have saved it in my Favorites, and also forwarded little samples along with the link to every health care provider I know.

    You are right!! This is a very informational website. I have several FMS and CFIDS websites saved in my "favorites" folder. It's like having an informational health library. I'm always on the lookout for good websites. I will definitely add this one to my "library".

    Thanks again.
