Hello, everyone, This looks like a great group. I read your posts half the night (couldn't sleep), and I'm looking forward to reading more. I hope I can contribute in some way. My husband and I both have FM and we are sure we have CFS as well. We've tried many things since 1997 with varying degrees of success (or not). We've both slipped far enough that we are having extreme difficulty handling our personal affairs, and nobody, including our family, seems to understand because we "look just fine." So we are looking for some strong ideas. I really do have a sense of humor (it's hidden in there somewhere ;-) but today's not one o' them days ... Thanks, suz P.S. Noticed there's already another member with the name "soozbee" -- hi there.
