those who are homebound (as most of us are from time to time), there are many
online support groups functioning by email lists or "groups". Some may
be limited regionally, while on others you may find yourself 'talking' with people
from around the country - and from other countries. The locations and names of
these lists change from time to time as moderators/listnannies change and other
free service providers offer new opportunities. Check out the Health,
areas on the following list/group sites to see if there are any CFS, FM, or ME,
groups that interest you.
