my nine year old daughter has just been diagnosed with cfs and I dont know how to help her. as you probably know it is extremely frustrating for us not to be able to do anything to take her pain away. As much as we try to get her to go to school and socialise it is very hard as the school arent being very helpful. As they believe she shouldnt be there if she is sick. I suppose i was wondering if you could give me some advice on how I may be able to help her and also to find out if there is anyone else out there with a child with cfs also.
