    Hi, my name is Susanne, I've recently moved from the UK to the US and I've got CFIDS. And so I've got some questions.

    I live in New Haven, and need to sign up with a primary health care physician. Does anyone know of such a person in the New Haven/Hamden area who is experienced with and sympathetic to CFIDS people?

    I also wonder whether there is a CFIDS support group at Yale or in New Haven, I have not been able to find anything on the web.

    Any help much appreciated!

    Sandy,

    Many thanks for your reply! I'm afraid, the two doctors in CT on the Co-Cure list are two far away from New Haven, as I have no car and live by myself. Also, I'm not looking for a specialist, just for a primary care physician who has experience with and is sympathetic to people with CFIDS.

    Thanks also for the United Way tip. The New Haven one had no A-Z list, but I posted them a question, so perhaps they'll reply.

    Im in Kansas so cant help with a Dr but if you have insurance perhaps they could send you a list in your area.

    I dont go to a support group I find its easier just coming here then you dont have to worry about leaving home and if your having a bad time its easier.
    Good luck in your hunt, some of us have went thru hell and high water before finding a Dr.

    Welcome again ,you will find lots of good advise and encouragement here.

    To the board and to America too! Glad you have found us here.

    I am sorry you can't locate a doctor in your area, but hopefully someone on the board will be able to help you.

    Did you try this site for a Support Group? If not, then go to 'Community' and fill in the form, it will let you know if there is one in your area, or call the local hospital they should be able to help also.

    Again, welcome to the board and to our country.

    Will be looking forward to knowing you better.


    Shalom, Shirl
