There is an alarming rate in number of women in my small south central town of Kansas that have firo/cfs. There are over 20 women that I know personally, with these dibilitating syndromes including myself. And those 20 know of 20 more. We've had to quit working, lost our social life, and living day to day wondering what we'll be able to do tomorrow. I wish someone would look into this epidemic proportion in numbers. If I knew who to contact, I would. But I hardly have the energy to stay up through one day, let alone try to find information as to why we have this going on. Does anyone else know of such concentrated #'s in one small place?
