Connect with a Fibromyalgia and/or CFS group in your area. Support groups provide an informal forum for members and anyone needing information, education and support. Get the word out in your community about Fibromyalgia/CFS and support others, help yourself, and encourage family and friends to understand this illness.

If there is not a group in your area, consider starting one. Together we can make a difference.
